From a sticky cinnamon roll to start your day to a decadent cake to celebrate a birthday, it’s hard to think of a moment that’s not made better by a warm-from-the-oven baked good. But when life gets in the way of baking, there’s still a way to serve up a freshly-made sweet something: meet Betty Crocker’s new Mug Treats.
All you really need to make these scrumptious, single-serving treats is your microwave and a spoon. But with a couple more ingredients, sourced from your pantry, you can make your mug treat into something extra special!
When you fancy a breakfast pastry better than the coffee shop’s
Keep a stash of Blueberry Muffin Mug Treats on hand and you can skip the line at the coffee shop. Sliced almonds and granola on top of a warm blueberry muffin glazed with cream cheese frosting is the perfect accompaniment to checking the morning news or your email. If you’re keeping yours at work, don’t forget — you’ll need an extra coffee mug!
And if you love a sugar-and-spice start to your morning, add a handful of chopped pecans and apples to your Cinnamon Roll Cake Mug Treat. They’ll melt into the warm cream cheese frosting that comes with each serving for a breakfast that falls on the luxurious side of wholesome!
When you’ve got something to celebrate
Who wants a medal when you could have a cookie? Next time there’s something to celebrate, do it with a Soft-Baked Chocolate Chip Cookie Mug Treat topped with fudge and chopped candy bar—a little scoop of ice cream couldn’t hurt either!
When it’s been one of those days and you need a chocolate fix
Oh boy, do we have you covered, chocolate lover! There’s more than one way to take a sweet treat to the next level with Chocolate Caramel Cakes, Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies and Hot Fudge Brownies in the pantry! And the beauty of these single-serving mug treats is that you can indulge without over-indulging.
If this gooey, caramel-and-chocolate-cake treat doesn’t pick you up, nothing will! It’s got it all going on: sweet chocolate cake, a sprinkle of sea-salty goodness, rich caramel sauce and crunchy pecans! And it’s simple to boot — no chopping required!
Don’t get frustrated, eat chocolate-peanut butter cake instead! This made-in-heaven flavor combo is so rich and satisfying, it’ll fix any mood at first bite. To make your Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownie Mug Treat even more decadent, sprinkle the peanut butter topping with chopped mini peanut butter cups and peanuts.
And when you want a taste of the old-fashioned malt shop—without leaving the house— nothing beats a Hot Fudge Brownie Mug Treat topped with whipped cream and nuts. If you’re really feeling fancy, top it with a maraschino cherry before digging in!
When you’re craving the campfire treats without the campfire
You don’t need to plan a whole camping trip just to get your favorite campfire treat. S’mores can be yours anytime with Triple Chocolate Cake topped with fudge frosting, mini marshmallows and graham cracker crumbs!
For a birthday treat-yourself!
Who says you can’t have a little extra cake on that most special of occasions? It’s easy to make your day (or maybe your birthday week!) a little more fun with a Rainbow Chip cake topped with the rainbow chip frosting, candy sprinkles and candy, like M&M’s or Skittles. No matter which birthday you’re celebrating, a colorful mug treat is a sweet little present to yourself!
