Valentines day is fine and dandy for those romantic duos caught in a perpetual love trap. But, what about you? You’re celebrating alone this year and have consigned yourself to a year without v-day hysterics. No flowers. No lipstick stamped boxers. No chocolate.
Hold up! Did I just hear you say no chocolate? No way, girlfriend. You gonna get chocolate. Heck yes you are. You’re going to grab three lil’ ol’ ingredients you’ve already got in your pantry, you’re gonna mix them together in a mug, and then you’re going to treat yourself to the easiest, gooiest, most delectable chocolate mug cake because you deserve that sort of awesomeness this Valentines Day. Even if you’re celebrating alone. Booyeah.
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1 scoop ice cream
In a mug, whisk together the egg, cocoa, and powdered sugar until a batter forms. Zap the mug full of batter in your microwave for 60-90 seconds (just watch it through the microwave window. It’ll puff up, and then it will start to fall. Just as it starts to fall, it should be done and delicious). Top with a scoop of ice cream. Grab a spoon. Eat. Treat. Happy Valentines Day You.
