Ingredients

1
box Betty Crocker™ Super Moist® dark chocolate cake mix
1 1/3
cups Betty Crocker™ white angel food cake mix (1/2 box)
Water
4
bars (4.25 oz each) Hershey’s® Special Dark® mildly sweet chocolate

  • 1 In gallon-size resealable food-storage plastic bag, combine cake mixes; seal bag and shake well to mix.
  • 2 To make 1 mug cake, spray microwavable mug (about 12 oz) with cooking spray. Place 3 tablespoons dry cake mixture into mug. Add 2 tablespoons water; stir well to blend. Place 3 chocolate bar rectangles (not overlapping) on top of cake batter in mug. Microwave uncovered on High 45 seconds to 1 minute or until cake is slightly moist on top. Do not overcook, or cake will be dry. Let stand 1 minute. Turn upside down onto serving plate, or eat out of mug. Top with whipped topping, if desired.
  • 3 Repeat step 2 to make up to 20 mug cakes.

Expert Tips

You can use 2 tablespoons chocolate chips or 2 miniature candy bars in place of the chocolate bar rectangles for each mug. For more gooey goodness, add 1 tablespoon marshmallows after cooking, and microwave 5 to 10 seconds longer.

Try another flavor cake mix to add to the other half of the angel food cake mix.
