|Chocolate Fudge S'mores Mug Cake from How Sweet It Is|
That goal is not a New Years resolution, because duh, every year I resolve to lose a few pounds. No this is more of a quest. The quest started some time last year when I discovered No. 2 Pencils Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Cup, and then I dug deeper into Miss Pencils archives and found she had compiled a whole post of recipes in a mug.
30 to be exact, and it was my duty to try as many of the 30 as I could and report on my favorites right? She went to all that trouble to make a tasty list of mug desserts and I wanted her efforts to be recognized, or was it I wanted my taste buds satisfied?
I'm not saying I ate one of these every night - although my jeans tell me it seems like it - and probably not once a week either, but after I read the post "30 Mug Recipes" I realized unless I picked up the pace, my quest might take several years.

These are not just pretty pictures of stuff I found, I actually made these mug recipes, you know, like a taste test. If you do try any of these, tell them Bliss sent you.
And now, stamped with the Bliss Ranch seal of lip smacking goodness,
my favorite desserts in a mug:
First up, No. 2 Pencils chocolate chip cookie. I even made it one night for 4 people while we were playing cards. Now if you make more than one of them, it's not a quick process, but my guests loved the novelty of it. Topped with ice cream of course!

Just last night I made Coffee Cake in a mug from Prudent Baby. It was yummy, the cinnamon topping was just like a streusel coffee cake. I loved it and will be making it again.

Peanut butter cooked into things isn't at the top of my fav's list, but I do have a daughter obsessed with it, so I regularly try new peanut butter desserts in search of one to please us both. If the peanut butter includes chocolate, it's a winner in my book, and add a cream cheese fluffy topping, and well, 'ya it's good!

Ok, fine, I confess I added more whipped cream to mine....come on Heather that pumpkin cake below needs a bigger dollop!
I saved my favorite dessert in a mug for last, from Cooking Classy..........
I tried this one on a whim as I had a banana that needed to be used. So one afternoon when Brawn came home from work I doubled the recipe and made us each one. It is rich and banana-y and made such a large mug cake neither of us could eat the whole thing. The cream cheese frosting on it with the cake, yummmmmm, made it like a special dessert.
I picked up some bananas just to make this mug dessert next week, when everyone is gone to work or school and I can hoard it all to myself. Oink.
