What’s better than the combo of peanut butter and chocolate?
The answer is nothing is better than the combo of peanut butter and chocolate. Unless it’s healthy peanut butter and chocolate, or at least healthier. Just like most mug cakes, this is super easy and a great way to make dessert for 1 or 2 people without leaving 3/4 of a cake around to tempt yourself.
The cake will rise in the mug, but shouldn’t get too high unless you are using a really small mug. You could double this recipe and stick it in two mugs or even split it in half if you only want just a few bites of that amazing flavor combo.
