Making no-bake chocolate brownies without an oven is a great way to satisfy your brownie craving in just a few minutes. It is also perfect for whipping up a last-minute dessert when unannounced guests happen to stop by, or simply if you don't own an oven!


The first thing to do is to break or chop the chocolate into small pieces, which will make it melt more easily, and mix with the butter. Melt both ingredients in the microwave on average power for a minute.

If the chocolate isn't melted after one minute, melt it for 10 seconds at a time, stirring in between until everything is well melted to avoid burning your chocolate. Burnt chocolate will ruin the taste of the brownie, so make sure to melt it very slowly!

Finally, add the chocolate and butter mixture and mix until well combined. Your no-bake brownie batter is ready!

Take a microwave-safe mold and prepare the surface with flour and butter in order to prevent it from sticking. You can use a cupcake silicone mold, for instance.

Add your batter to the mold and set the microwave power to 750 W for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, check your brownie by introducing a knife in the center of the dessert. If it comes out clean, your no-bake brownie is ready. Otherwise, leave it for another 2 minutes and check. Repeat until you have successfully made a brownie without an oven.

which flour did you use? what do you mean without yeast?
Alice T Breeze (oneHOWTO editor)
Yeast is what makes the cake or brownies raise, therefore, you should search for flour that doesn't have this component. Wholemeal flour doesn't have yeast in many cases for example.
the brownie looks very good
