Praise the Lord for Grandmas!! AMEN???
My grandma Nell tucked this adorable “Chocolate Mug Cake” in with some Easter treats for my girls. The back of it reads “God sends no stress that chocolate and prayer can’t handle.”
I think this was my favorite of all the desserts. The chocolate mousse was a close second… but this took the cake! (or… it ‘took the brownie’ I guess) 🙂
You start with your favorite brownie boxed mix (I used Duncan Hines) so that simplifies these A LOT! Then you just add in some special ingredients to make them feel more homemade and nothing like something you could make from a box. I think the glaze you put on top has a lot to do with this!
Let’s jump right in! Here’s a photo to get you excited:
This is another SUPER simple dessert that you can make ahead! It can be made casual or elegant. Just use the appropriate style of cups or glasses to go with your occasion. The mousse will taste just as good in a paper cup but it will look even more inviting if you dress it up a bit. I think I might even top mine with chocolate shavings or curls next time I serve them! Again, not necessary, but pleasing to the eyes.
