5 minute chocolate cake

so how come if you want a a piece of chocolate cake you have to make the whole cake? why not just make a slice? no mess, only a cup, a spoon, and a microwave.

4 tblsp flour
4 tblsp sugar
2 tblsp cocoa 
1 egg
3 tblsp milk
3 tblsp oil
splash of white vinegar 
splash of vanilla
3 tblsp chocolate chips

works best with an oversized coffee mug

mix all the dry ingredients well
then add each wet ingredient one at a time mixing well after each
add chocolate chips last

you are making this directly in the coffee mug

pop it in the microwave for 3 minutes on high

DONE!!! 3 minute chocolate cake (5 minutes with prep)

neapolitan and hot chocolate cupcakes

when one flavor isn't enough, go for 3. Neapolitan ice cream is wonderful, why not make it in cupcake form. comfort me with apples has one of the best recipes i've found. 

i found a recipe for these amazing things on Comfort me with apples

you can take it one step further and sprinkle some hot chocolate mix and cinnamon on the top along with chocolate pocky (crushed almonds are my favorite), and some small marshmallows.
