Sometimes we all just have cravings for a little something sweet, and this Chocolate Marshmallow Mug Cake is perfect for those occasions. It starts with a chocolate cake base, and is then topped with chopped marshmallows and chocolate chips which are gently mixed through the partially cooked cake, resulting in a lava like cake filled with gooey, melted chocolate and marshmallows. It’s the perfect treat for one!
Start with a good sized microwave safe mug; mugs that are on the smaller size could end up leaving your microwave in a sticky mess if the cake overflows. Add some butter and pop it in the microwave for around 20 seconds or until the butter is melted. Add the flour, cocoa powder, brown sugar and egg and whisk with a fork until the mixture is smooth and well combined. Place back in the microwave for around 45 seconds, you want to cake to begin cooking, but not yet cooked right through.
Now it’s time to add the fun bits. Chop up 4 of your marshmallows and sprinkle them on top of the cake along with the chocolate chips. Gently stir through the cake. The add ins don’t have to be well incorporated, just roughly stir them in. Next, top the cake with the remaining whole marshallow, and pop back in the microwave for 45 seconds to a minute, or until the cake is just cooked. Enjoy!
