    Ugh!

    I'm craving chocolate and have none in the house. Hate when that happens

    Wouldn't a nice fudgy whoopie pie with creamy vanilla filling be just wonderful right now? Add the glass of cold whole milk and you're on your way to a comfort food coma.

      MICROWAVE CHOCOLATE CAKE IN A MUG
      serves 1
      ACTIVE TIME:
      5 minutes
      TOTAL TIME:
      12 minutes
      SPECIAL EQUIPMENT:
      coffee mug (at least 10 ounces; bigger is OK too)

      Ingredients
      4 tablespoons flour
      4 tablespoons sugar
      2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
      1 egg, whisked
      3 tablespoons milk
      3 tablespoons canola oil
      3 tablespoons chocolate chips
      1 teaspoon vanilla extract
      nuts, candies, or whatever flavor mix-ins you'd like (optional)

      Procedures

      1. Place all of the dry ingredients in the mug and mix with a fork.

      2. Add the whisked egg and combine well--it will be pretty sticky at this point.

      3. Stir in the milk and oil until well combined.

      4. Add the chocolate chips, vanilla, and whatever other mix-ins you'd like.

      5. Microwave for 3 minutes in a 1000 watt microwave, or 4 minutes in a 700 watt oven. The cake will puff up in the mug while it bakes, but don't panic--it will deflate when you remove it from the heat. Note: If you are worried about spillage, or if you are using a smaller mug and it is looking pretty full, err on the side of caution and put a plate beneath the mug--this will save you possible cleanup woes later.

      Top the cake with confectioners' sugar or frosting or ice cream if you'd like, as well as any candy or garnish you'd like (I used candied ginger); you can either eat it straight from the mug, or turn it out onto a plate to enjoy.

            I have both the Hershey's Hugs and Hershey's Kisses. I keep them hidden away for the grandkids. I put them around in my fabric cupboard when they come over and they always ask, is there a candy cupboard today, grammie? I always say, no, it's just an ordinary cupboard full of fabric. Then they know to run to it. One a day seems to really satisfy them. It's an easy way to be Super Grammie.

                Bummer, all I have is Reese's Peanut Butter cups, and Devils food cookies.

                But, when I want that fast hit to the system for chocolate, I go for the Chocolate Coke. Yummmy!

                  Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate from Dunkin Donuts was what I called a "panic attack in a cup." Worth it. And they stopped serving it now that winter is over! It gives me something to look forward to next December...

                          I prefer Snicker eggs this time of the year. They're a glob of awesomeness!

                          I think my apple may have cut down that craving and was certainly lots better for me. While it's at bay I think I'll retire and read. Then off to sleepville where I won't think about chocolatey goodness.

                          Night good people!

                            I keep Nestle Quick in the house and have a glass of chocolate milk whenever a craving hits and there is no candy in the house.
