college food: microwave brownies

Normal college students eat ramen or Easy Mac. Not my roommates and me. Three weeks into our first semester of college, we figured out how to make delicious, near-gourmet brownies in our microwave. They were extremely delicious--much more delicious than you would expect from the microwave.

They were the brownie babies of some mix my roommate's mother sent her and the trail mix we had around the room.

Easy Microwave Brownies

1/2 cup brownie mix (we used Trader Joe's Reduced Guilt, but I know that you can use other varieties)
1/2 cup applesauce
1/8 cup trail mix or to taste (we used Target's Chocolate Cranberry Crunch, but mainly the walnuts, so feel free to use just nuts or whatever trail mix you like best)

Combine the brownie mix and the applesauce in a microwave safe bowl. Stir until well-mixed. Add the trail mix--if using nuts, break them up well.

Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Let them cool...or pop them out of the bowl as fast as you can. There's no judgement here. Enjoy!
