Dark Chocolate Mug Cake Recipe

Fat Mum Slim /

Happy Valentine’s Day! Are you like me and woke to a plethora of love notes and gifts…? Yeah, nah… me either.

I like the idea of having a day to love and spread love, but I love on my husband daily… and my kids too – so we don’t do anything differently on V-day. The only thing we might do, is indulge in a little treat.

This dark chocolate mug cake is perfection. It takes no time to make {well it takes a little time, but no more than 5 minutes} and you can just grab two spoons and sit on the couch with your lover and dig in.

Perfect, right?

Or if you’re not a sharer, make two!
