ChelsEats: Microwave Mug Recipes

Sometimes, we all have a craving for little something chocolate, something gooey, something fresh-out-the-oven. Don't be so quick to crack out the full blown recipes, though--there are tons of recipes for single serve mug cakes or cookies or whatever your heart desires.

I did a little experimenting the other day and made a pretty good mini chocolate tart. I started with a basic cookie crust- 1T flour, 1T butter, and ΒΌ T confectioners sugar. I mixed together, pressed it down into a small container, then popped it in the microwave and cooked it till the top was light brown, about 45 seconds. Then I let it cool while making a simple ganache in the microwave- 2T semi sweet chocolate chips (I like Guittard) and 2T heavy cream, microwaved for 30 seconds. I poured it into the container with the cookie, let it cool, and voila! It came out well...the cookie was a little undercooked in the middle, but I didn't mind at all. It was the perfect serving size too.
