Sometimes, You Just Need A Brownie

…And, by sometimes, of course I mean most times. Also, by brownie, of course I mean brownie sundae.

In reality, you need no actual reason to indulge in one of the most delicious sweet treats known to man, but in case you are one of those people that only “allow” yourself treats when you actually “deserve” them, let me give you some examples of life circumstances that would warrant some chocolatey goo on your picky little palate.

  1. Your most recent Instagram selfie only got 10 likes, one short of making all those damn names disappear. Ugh.
  2. Your A&P professor accidentally gave you the same exam he passed out as a study guide! Score!
  3. Your roommate bought a new pair of Coco&Breezy’s (, which means you get to wear her old Coco&Breezy’s!!!! Win/Win.
  4. Your crush quit following you on Twitter. Major bummer.
  5. You got the acceptance letter to that summer internship you wanted so so badly!!!

You see, it doesn’t matter whether you’re having a good day or a bad day; a Brownie Sundae is always the very best thing to do.

Here’s the deal, this isn’t your ordinary brownie… where you have to make that whole box, and wait like 40 minutes while it is in the oven…

No, No… this is a 2 Minute Microwave Mug Brownie. Yes my friend, TWO MINUTES!!!!

So, here you go…. in exactly 2.5 minutes, you and I will become instant best friends.
