S'mores Cake in a mug

I recently decided to become a Tupperware Consultant. Up until a month and a half ago, I didn't even know that Tupperware was still around. My friend invited me over for a Tupperware party that she was hosting and I instantly fell in love with their products! Tupperware has evolved quite a bit from what I remember. They have so many wonderful, update, and innovative products. Over the 3 weeks, I have had so much fun exploring their products. Last night, my son and I decided to try out our Tupperware Vent 'N Serve Soup Mug.
I figured what better way to test it out then with a dessert in a mug recipe.

We decided to try out a new recipe, S'mores Cake in a Mug.
Like the other Mug Recipes that I have made, this was quick and easy to make.
It was a huge hit with my son!

S'mores Cake in a Mug

5 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
4 1/2 Tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
Dash of salt

1/2 teaspoon white vinegar
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
4 1/2 Tablespoons water 

1 large marshmallow or 6 mini marshmallows
3 Hershey chocolate squares
1 graham cracker square broken into small pieces

Using a large microwave safe mug, spray the inside with non-stick cooking spray.
Next, mix the first 5 dry ingredients in the mug.  
After mixing well, make 3 depressions in dry ingredients.  Pour vinegar in one depression, vanilla in the other and the vegetable oil in third depression.  Pour water over top.
Mix well until smooth using a fork.
Next, place 1 large marshmallow or 6 mini marshmallows in the middle of the cake mix and press down. Place in microwave and cook on high for 1 minute and 30 seconds**, uncovered at full power. Check with toothpick to make sure it comes out clean (not near the marshmallow).  Be sure not to overcook!  
When done, remove from microwave, top with the Hershey chocolate squares and sprinkle with graham cracker pieces.  Allow to cool for a few minutes. Enjoy!

**Each microwave cooks differently, adjust time accordingly! Check the cake at 1minute and 30 seconds, if it is not done, put it in for another 10 seconds or so and check it again. Repeat until the cake is done.  If you overcook the cake, it may ruin it.  Be sure to watch as it bakes.

If You Were the Easter Bunny, What Would Your Name Be?

My Other Little Easter Egg Tree

I made this little Easter Egg tree to help "Easterfy" my house. I made this one just like this one, but I used small plastic Easter eggs instead of foam ornaments. I found the eggs in a discount store by me, I spent $1.00 for 2 packs of 24 eggs! Thanks to the supper sale on the eggs, this decoration only cost me $2.00 to make! For a tutorial on how to make your own, check out the other Easter Egg Tree I made.
