Why You’ll Love This
This is my solution to any late-night snack cravings when I want something cozy and delicious. Especially when I don’t have the energy to get out all the ingredients to make a batch of brownies. This recipe only requires one cup, 4 ingredients, and less than 2 minutes in the microwave. Top this gooey mug with ALL of your favorite toppings like whipped cream and sprinkles. My favorite topping is to add a scoop of caramel ice cream on top. *chefs kiss*
Nutella – This is chocolatey ingredient number 1. And something I always have on hand because duh – its the best! You could probably use any hazelnut spread but the Nutella brand the one I’ve always used and turns out out perfect every time.
Eggs – Eggs provide structure and flavor. I have tried this recipe without the egg and I still find it to be the most tasty using one.
Flour – For that sweet and festive flavor that pairs perfectly with the cumin and cayenne.
Vanilla – The vanilla is optional but highly recommended.
In a medium bowl combine almonds, walnuts, and pecans and set aside. Feel free mix up the types of nuts used in the recipe.
When baking the nuts in the oven, be sure to not over bake. Baking time will vary by ovens, but do keep an eye on them when baking to avoid burning. Just light golden brown is what you are looking for.
Store nuts in the fridge during the summer months and in a container at room temperature in the colder months.
Freeze nuts up to 3 months in the freezer if you don’t plan to eat all of them at once.
