It’s Friday and the perfect time to indulge yourself with chocolate and more chocolate! Now who wouldn’t want to do that? I wanted something quick and easy but that would still be rich, gooey and full of chocolate, so I thought I would try making my first mug cake.

A few months ago I made Lava Cakes in ramekins for my anniversary so I thought this would be a great place to start. I looked up a few recipes on line, one being a caramel-flavored mug cake and, after understanding the general idea, took my lava cake recipe and adapted it to make a microwave mug cake version.

One of my husband’s and my true indulges is having one Dove Dark Chocolate Promise after dinner every night. It soothes the sweet craving without a lot of calories and the dark chocolate is actually good for you! (That’s our excuse and we’re sticking to it!) So I had to include these little darlings in my lava cake recipe.
