For many moms, it’s hard to get a moment alone to take a breath. After all, those adorable little kiddos we’ve got are also adorable bottomless pits of NEED! Can we tell you a secret? It’s okay to indulge yourself once in a while! One of our favorite ways to take a load off without hitting the spa or some retail therapy is to make a quick, sweet treat just for one. Everything in moderation, right? Since we’re all about taking one for the team, we *may* just have taste-tested a few single-serve microwave dessert recipes just for YOU! Check out these quick culinary delights that your sweet tooth will love after a busy day of parenting.
Have we mentioned how much we LOVE the blogosphere and its little sister, Pinterest? Where would our sweet tooth (not to mention our crock pot, linen closet, wardrobe and hair bow organization) be without them? We pinned this fast and fantastic microwave chocolate chip cookie in a cup from the No. 2 Pencil blog. Teeny bits of all the usual ingredients, 60 seconds in the microwave, and all kinds of yummy goodness for mom! We tried this recipe ourselves, and, well…it’s a KEEPER!
5-Minute Chocolate Salted Caramel Mug Cake
Salted caramel is arguably one of the greatest inventions of the modern world, right? YUM! So we couldn’t resist pinning this recipe from NomNomBlingBling…a chocolate salted caramel mug cake (pictured at the top of the post) for one that takes five minutes from start to finish! You’ll have most of the ingredients in your pantry already! (Note to self: pick up caramels at the grocery store STAT!) You can go from hungry to heaven in five minutes and feel like a microwave gourmet. We can’t wait to try this one out!
S’mores are everyone’s favorite summertime treat, but they make a great microwave treat any time of the year. We pinned this yummy twist on the favorite dessert from the Remodelaholic blog. And wow, does it hit the spot! This creative recipe calls for Nutella chocolate-hazelnut spread and mini-marshmallows instead of the traditional chocolate bar. It’s a classic childhood snack with a tasty grown-up twist. Best of all? It takes only 15 seconds to make and enjoy! S’morelicious!
