Chocolate Chip Mug Cake

My mom is coming today! My mom is coming today!  I am barely excited as you can tell.


So my mom is coming today, not sure if you heard, and you know what that means.  I have to clean my room.  Well and because I’m an adult now, I have to clean my whole dang place.  High five for being an adult.  Not.  (Should I say syke a la the teenage years?)

But I am really excited, she made the decision like last Friday to come out, which is awesome because I escaped the weeks/months of anticipation and excitement that makes the fore mentioned weeks/months take so very long.  You guys, you guys should be excited too.  Because, in honor of momma coming, I’m posting a recipe that she would L.O.V.E.

If you’ve been hanging out on this blog for a while, you know dessert isn’t really my thing.  My mom however is the OPP-O-SITE.  She must eat chocolate, oh say, every meal?  Maybe more?  So the perks of this dessert, I’ll list them

  1. Has chocolate (read: the title of this post)
  2. Only has 3 ingredients
  3. Has chocolate (read: number 1.)
  4. Comes together and cooks in under 2 minutes
  5. Has chocolate (Did I mention that?)

So the gist, she will love it!  And so will you!  Have you tried mug cakes?  I feel like they’re pretty popular right now.  I mean, it’s a cake.  That you can make in the microwave.  In 60 seconds.  How has the inventor of this not won like a Nobel Prize or something?  If you haven’t tried them yet, today should definitely be your day.  And you should let me know what you think!chocolate chip mug cake 1I added a small dollop of frosting to mine, just the kind that comes in the container that I keep in my fridge had for some strange reason and hardly ever eat, by the spoonful.  Depending on your brand this will add another 50-60 calories.
