There are a few things in my house that could trigger an emergency response. Of course, if there was the obvious fire, injury, intruder, etc. Then there is the less obvious. Like the lack of chocolate based food products….especially after the kids are in bed and I don’t have to share!
Not an emergency you say?! Ha, check out the definition!
- Serious (check)
- unexpected (check)
- dangerous situation (check)
There you have it, folks, a lack of chocolate is totally an emergency!
Luckily I have a secret weapon for just a situation! This Chocolate Mug Cake Mix Recipe! So simple, so genius, and I can have a hot chocolate cake in my hands in 1 minute flat! That sounds like a lifesaver for me!
You are going to need a chocolate cake mix, angel food cake mix and a jar big enough to hold both.
Mix both cake-mixes together very well.
Put 3 Tbsp of the cake mix mixture into a mug, or mason jar.
Add 2 Tbsp of water and stir. Pop into the microwave for 1 minute on high.
What you get is nothing short of genius. It is like a chocolate angel food heaven. Now if you drizzle a little caramel topping over it…OMG!!! Also good with whipped cream and a few strawberries. It is just good by itself too! It’s chocolate!
Then there, of course, is the rest of the mix. Put it in that jar and then label it. So you are ready to go In Case of Emergency!
