There is something miraculous about the combination of chocolate and peanut butter. It’s a marriage made in heaven. Hand me a dessert with this chocolate and peanut butter pairing and I am all over it! Sometimes, a quick dessert like this Chocolate Peanut Butter Mug Cake is needed to satisfy our craving. And by quick, I mean one minute. Yep, one minute to a delicious treat. I have seen mug cakes all over the internet, but this is my first time experimenting and having fun creating. Since chocolate a peanut butter are a match made in heaven, I couldn’t think of better ingredients to experiment with.
For many, including me, chocolate soothes the soul. It’s often just what we need for a quick pick me up to help get us through the day or as a cure for a bad day in general. Have you ever tried American Heritage Chocolate Bites? American Heritage Chocolates are artisan chocolate made from a recipe from 1750. These decadent bites have a rich chocolate flavor and a hint of cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, orange, and red pepper; all ingredients that were available in the 18th century. American Heritage Chocolates can be found at your local Cracker Barrel from now until July.
I incorporated some of the American Heritage Bites into this Chocolate Peanut Butter Mug Cake by pulsing them in a food processor first. This dessert is pretty much a one-bowl wonder (with the exception of using the food processor). Simply combine all of the ingredients in a bowl, mix and add to a mug. Pop the mug in a microwave for one minute and once the time goes off, say hello to a Chocolate Peanut Butter Mug Cake! Pretty complicated, huh? Not!
I thoroughly enjoyed this mug cake while it was warm. The chocolate and peanut butter melted right in my mouth. I refrained from adding a nice heaping scoop of vanilla ice cream to the top. It was hard to do.
