A Chocolatey Hack: Brownies in a Mug

Good news chocolate lovers: if you've got a few common baking ingredients lying around, a microwave, and 5 minutes you can make Brownies in a Cup. A big thanks to CrazyRussianHacker for the video showing how it can be done. There are plenty of web pages that describe the recipe, but it's just not the same without the Russian accent and safety goggles.

See what I mean:

Here's a thought: none of the ingredients require refrigeration (sugar, flour, salt, cocoa, oil). Couldn't you pre-measure the ingredients into little zip lock baggies and store them in a mug? Then, when an emergency strikes (say, a bad day the office), you could deploy this sucker for quick results. In other words, forget the Wedding Day Survival Kit and the Urban Survival Kit and focus on what's really important: A Chocolate Survival Kit.
