Ever since I was a little kid I’ve craved sweets at night. It’s probably not all that weird, I mean, everyone loves candy in some form or another, right? Anyway, It has been years and I’m still obsessed with getting my next fix. I swear, I’m an addict! I’m always looking at quick little ways to satisfy my craving without spending 2 hours making a huge batch of cookies, or going to the local ice cream shop and blowing my extra cash on a treat. I also think I’m with a large sum of people when I say I’ve tried the chocolate cake in a cup and hated it. It was just gross. It was always too eggy, too bland, or worst of all, the chocolate tasted gross and burnt. I also hated that it tasted like butt unless I had chocolate chips. Which also bring in a whole other complaint. If I had chocolate chips on hand, why the heck am I surfing the web looking to make subpar chocolate cake? Ehh. Regardless, mug cake sucks.
I was surfing through my new YT video subscriptions when I saw this amazing video from xoxoamandakisses. It’s a sugar cookie in a mug! What’s best of it all is that all you need in order to make it taste like a REAL cookie is the following:
1 T Butter (melted)
2 T Sugar
1/2 t Vanilla extract
3 T flour
a pinch of salt
1 Egg yolk
Mix the first 3 ingredients together in the bottom of a mug. Add remaining ingredients, and stir. Microwave for 45-55 seconds. Remove, cool, and devour.
Do you see any fancy ingredients that most people don’t have on hand? No. At least not at my house. Even if it’s the day before grocery day we always have those items above. I’m going to get so fat. Y’all just wait.
Here are some pics of the finished product, as well as me being a turd before I try the first bite
