Sin in a Cup

So I was perusing Heather's blog at Want What You Have, and saw this cool looking recipe for a chocolate cake made in a coffee cup, baked in the microwave. I thought I would give it a try (if you want the recipe, go here) because it only took 3 minutes to make and I had all the ingredients on hand.

I found my prettiest (and biggest) mug; a fun, pink and white polka dot one that makes me smile every time I use it. So, I thought it would be just awesome if there was a great chocolate cake baked inside! Well, it was fun watching the cake rise up in the microwave.

And it tasted really good! Maybe a little dryer than what I'm used from a box cake mix, but great if you want a good chocolate fix, which is just what I needed (three letters, PMS). But the cake was just too plain. I thought it needed a little something. As I scrounged the cabinets and the fridge, I began adding more and more and more to that simple chocolate cake-in-a-cup began to morph into something altogether different.

It became this chocolaty, fudgy, caramely, nutty, ice creamy THING that just OOZED sinful decadence. Way over the top!

But I ate it anyway!

I mean come on...could you resist?

I also wanted to mention a fun little giveaway at Creative Home Expressions. She's giving away items from her sister's ETSY shop. Check it out!
