2 Delicious Chocolate PB Mugcakes (Reese’s Cup, and Chocolate PB Cinnabon)

3 Jul

This is what happens when a challenge arises. See, I may have stopped running competitively, but oh do I still have that competitive spirit! That is why I find it so fun to participate in these challenges via Instagram. Like I said in a previous post, one of my favorite instagram accounts to follow, TastyHealth, is putting on another fun challenge. Remember the last challenge she did back in spring, when I kept making those delicious pancake stacks?! (like here and here!) Well, now she is putting on a mugcake challenge! The first week’s theme was chocolate. Oh I do love my chocolate. I already posted my Mocha Coconut Latte mugcake, but I submitted two more entries this week as well! I came up with a delicious, Reese’s Cup mugcake, and a Chocolate Peanut Butter Cinnabon mugcake!

Both were so absolutely delicious. I made one for my brother when he came in town for a few days, and then I also introduced my sister to mugcakes with the other one! They both were big fans. By the way, did I ever mention that my brother is opening his OWN RESTAURANT?! He is indeed! A healthy fast food type restaurant, called SoFresh! (click here for the website!) If you live near the Tampa, FL area, you should definitely check it out when it opens in July!! I am so proud of him :)

Anyways, mugcakes have become one of my favorite desserts when wanting something quick, healthy, yet delicious. Perfect for a college student or anyone not having much time to bake! I didn’t make them too often before this challenge, except for this chocolate one, but now I am hooked! Even though I still believe real food is of course always a better option. But when wanting a dessert, this is definitely a great option compared to most!

      Oooo this is a challenge I like! You posting a mugcake, I never thought I would see the day!!

        If you create it I will make it AND post it. They look great by the way. Seriously awesome and I know I could go for a little cake right now.

        Maybe if I put it altogether and then have my wife put it in microwave and remove and set on counter I could pretend as if it were baked in the oven……hahahahahaha!

        I love the PB chocolate one you have here already. My favorite desserts are: pecan pie, key lime pie, carrot cake and any cookie I can get my hands on. So you have options here and the challenge is on!
