Hot Chocolate Mug Cakes Recipe

Hot Chocolate Mug Cakes Recipe

Bake your favorite chocolate cake batter in individual mugs for a warming winter dessert.


  • Cooking spray
  • Chocolate cake batter
  • Marshmallow creme


Simply coat the insides of oven safe mugs with cooking spray, then fill the mugs halfway with chocolate cake batter. We used a mix for German chocolate cake, which is a lighter color than regular chocolate cake and looks more like hot cocoa.

Follow the cupcake baking instructions on the cake mix package. The cakes are done when a toothpick inserted into the center of one comes out clean or with just a few crumbs. Allow the cakes to cool for about 15 minutes.

Top each mug with a generous dollop of marshmallow creme and serve with a spoon. One cake mix makes enough batter for 12 of our mugs; if you want fewer than a dozen, bake the remaining batter in a small pan.
