Hello Lil Luna Readers! I am so thrilled to be here today! My name is Hannah and I blog over at We Lived Happily Ever After. While I obviously love to bake, I also love everythingDIY! Especially coming up with sewing patterns for my baby girl. I would love for you to stop by and say hi!
Today I want to share with you MY super yummy take on Hot Cocoa. But not in drink form… that’s right it’s a CAKE in that mug!
(Recipe at bottom of post)
Most mugs are oven safe. but if you don’t feel comfortable putting your coffee mugs in the oven, try Mason Jars. They turn out just as pretty.
This recipe is special because it not only looks like gourmet hot chocolate, but it actually has hot cocoa mix in it!
Only add a heaping tablespoon full of batter to your buttered mugs.
Bake at 350 until done (mine took about 20 minutes)
Look at those delicious little mounds of chocolate cake? It’s a good, mindful “portion” size too. 😉
Your cake shouldn’t be soft in the middle. It should spring back when touched.
Let it cool down completely. Then add a dollop of chocolate hot cocoa frosting, let that harden in the fridge for five minutes, then add some room temperature cool whip.
If you want, you can also make it even more irresistible by adding your favorite chopped candy bar. Use left over Holiday candy!
