Hi Bold Bakers!

Chocolate cannot be confined to a season since it is always a welcomed addition to any dinner table. So during the holidays or any time of year, chocolate lovers will go nuts for this gorgeous little Hot Chocolate Mug Cake.

Mug Meals are a fantastic way to make real food fast! Made with good quality ingredients, everything is made from scratch in just minutes.  Whether you are short on time, want to control your portions, or just want to make homemade meals with little fuss and waste then yes, mug meals are for you. A perfect example of this is my husband Kevin makes the Burrito in a Mug  almost every day for breakfast. Not because we don’t have an oven but because he can make it in less than 5 minutes in the one mug.

I love mug cakes because they are just a speedier way to enjoy cake with little prep time and practically no cleaning up. I have over 50+ Mug Recipes  from breakfast to dessert and everything in between so make sure you check them out. P.S if you are looking for something savory, try my Mug Pizza. It is heaven in a mug.

This tastes so good. It’s so hard to find good mug cakes recipes. But this one is so I’m. I cooked mine for less time as I like mine slightly runny and gooey!
