The emergency chocolate cake. Kind of dry. Kind of only good if you add chocolate chips. Kind of overdone.
I just feel the need to get this out in the open: I love chocolate, but I’m not a chocoholic – it’s true. But what that should really tell you (besides the fact that I’ve totally failed you guys in the chocolate arena) is that when I crave chocolate that means it’s GOTTOHAPPENRIGHTTHISVERYSECONDORIMAYJUSTDIE. It’s a very serious thing when I crave chocolate – and therefore, the emergency chocolate cake is really saving my life. Really.
My biggest complaint about said chocolate mug cake though is that the flour ALWAYS dries it out. You know, besides the obvious fact that it’s being cooked in the microwave and all. So I set out on a mission to throw a bunch of stuff in a mug to make a more moist chocolate mug cake, clearly upping the chances that I’ll OD on chocolate mug cake and run out of chocolate chips.
But that’s neither here nor there.
If you’re craving chocolate you should definitely spring for this – it’s rich and gooey and delicious. It takes all of 3 minutes to make (including “baking” time) and is sure to quell that rabid desire for chocolate. All I’m saying is I’m not responsible you go into a chocolate and sugar induced coma after making and eating like 50 of these.
FLOURLESS EMERGENCY CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE
- 1/4 cup marshmallows
- 2 Tbsp peanut butter
- 2 Tbsp chocolate chips
- 1 Tbsp cocoa powder
- 1 Tbsp milk
- 1 egg white
Mix everything together in a large mug. Microwave for 1-2 minutes, stirring at the 30 second mark (helps mix in the marshmallows a bit more). You want it to be a LITTLE bit moist in the middle still – that means it’s done but not overdone! EAT!
