5 minute Chocolate Fudge S'mores Cake

If I didn't win you over with the title, I'm not sure who you are.

Who doesn't love 1. Chocolate. 2. S'mores. 3. Five minutes to make a cake?!

That's what I thought.

Best part of all? You make it in a mug so it's cute and personalized just for you. And it's perfect for a study break watching the Syracuse win by the skin of their teeth. That's when you shove the whole cake in your mouth when you're dying with anticipation.

Oh and because there is no crystal light in the house. Not a single packet. I go through a pack a week usually, and when I have tests, usually a pack in two days. It calms my nerves.

Anyway, back to this delicious mug of happiness. Go make one right now, ready go!
