Hi all! How are you? I hope you’re all having an awesome July so far, and are still rocking out this summer. I know I am, I don’t want summer to end… ever! 😆
I like to extend as much summer as I can, for as long as I can. And since the weather will soon start to change – heck, in England I’d be lucky for at least some ‘warmness’ when August rolls around, ha! So I wanted to make another super-de-dooperly quick and easy dessert for you guys to enjoy.
I decided on a Chocolate Fudge S’mores. And it comes in a mug. You’ll feel special! 🙂
Let’s talk about this Chocolate Fudge S’mores Mug Cake, shall we? I wouldn’t actually call it a mug cake at all, I’d say it’s more a combination of a super moist cake / pudding.
You know what’s crazy? I had never even tried S’mores until now! I know, I know… it’s more of a US thing and being a Brit, s’mores isn’t really that heard of here unfortunately.
So it’s funny how I rectify my s’mores experience by completely skipping the regular s’mores and diving in headfirst by creating a s’mores mug cake instead.
To make this chocolate fudge s’mores, you start with graham cracker crumbs (aka. digestive biscuits in the UK), push those crumbs into the bottom of a mug. Then making a gooerrific chocolate batter and smothering on top of the graham crackers. Finally topping with marshmallow fluff and cooking in the microwave.
Voila! …one amazing s’mores! You can even go as far as roasting the marshmallows under the grill or by using a kitchen torch, like I did.
This s’mores recipe also utilises on store-cupboard staples and it ridiculously easy to make. No need to light that campfire though!
And no need to preheat that oven in summer! My kids love this S’mores Mug Cake, and have been eating them all summer!
