Carol’s Hot Chocolate Mug Cake

Valentine’s Day is in the air, but it doesn’t matter if you are spending it with your spouse, friends or kids, this week’s Quick Family Recipe is perfect for everyone!

We’re making chocolate cake in a mug with hot chocolate packets! It only takes about two and a half minutes to put everything together and cook…two and half minutes until you are holding a warm ooey gooey chocolate cake in your hands!

What are we waiting for? Let’s get cooking together! 🙂

  • 3 Generous Tbsp Flour
  • 1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 3-4 Tbsp Water
