MICROWAVE MOCHA “CUP” CAKES

The perfect combination of coffee and chocolate. These Microwave Mocha “Cup” Cakes are a decadent dessert for one, done in mere minutes.

Take a little oil, cocoa, brewed coffee, sugar, vanilla and flour… then whip them up in a 2-cup measuring cup.  Pour the batter into a mug, ramekin or even a fancy demitasse cup, then microwave.

Quick as a bunny, grab a fabulous Chocolate Covered Cherry with it’s luxurious red coating. Then push it into the piping-hot “cup” cake. 

I used Marich brand Chocolate Cherries which are crafted with perfectly ripe, West Coast sweet Bing cherries under several layers of creamy milk chocolate.   They were delivered right to my door from Amazon in plenty of time for my party!

That’s it.  Grab a spoon and start enjoying this amazingly delicious hot cup of chocolate cake goodness.
