  • 2 Tbsp salted butter
  • 1 Tsp. vanilla
  • 2 Tbsp. milk
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup all purpose flour
  • 1 Tsp. baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons hot cocoa mix
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 chocolate truffle (roughly chopped)
  • 6-8 mini marshmallows (plus extra for garnish)


  • In a small microwave safe bowl, melt the butter.
  • Add the vanilla, milk and egg to the butter and whisk to combine.
  • Stir in the sugar, flour, baking powder, hot cocoa, and cocoa powder.
  • Divide the batter between two 8 ounce mugs filling no more than halfway in each mug. (Overfilling will result in a huge mess.)Sprinkle the batter with chopped truffle and marshmallows.
  • Place the mugs in the microwave and bake at full power for 1 minute. The cake should spring back when pressed lightly with your finger. If the cake is undercooked, cook for an additional 15 seconds until cooked through.
