Taste Test Tuesday: Tastefully Simple My Mug Cake

Happy Tuesday loves! Today is about cake. Now it is chocolate week here on blog. So of course Taste Test Tuesday is going to feature some chocolate.


For the Fall/Winter catalog season Tastefully Simple has this decadent Raspberry Chocolate cake that you can make in a mug, in the microwave!!! I know what you are thinking “a cake in the microwave” but no worries it’s actually good and very easy to make; cake mix and water, that’s it.

Now the beauty of all of this is the convenience of having a personal portion of cake and not feeling guilty for eating it. Moist chocolate cake with raspberry and add some chocolate sauce; a great way to change up your afternoon snack at work. Plus the mug is adorable and you can reuse it for coffee or tea.


We offer the mug cake as a gift pack so it makes a great gift or treat for yourself. Be sure to check out all the other tasty treats Tastefully Simple has to offer, their button is right here on our site.

Taste Test Tuesday: Nestlé Cookie-Brownie Delight

Happy Tuesday Everyone!! Grab a seat at the counter, fill your plate with a snack and let’s get started.


While out shopping for a quick dessert option for Super Bowl Sunday we spotted this chocolate beauty. Combining brownies and your favorite chocolate chip cookies is double treat you can beat.

No more having to pick just one dessert, you can have two-in-one….yummy!


Everything you need comes in the box, just add butter, water and 1 egg. Once you make each of the batters, you can later them in a 8×8 pan or be creative like we did and put them in a muffin pan.


We loved the idea of putting them in the muffin pan, it makes them much more personable; everyone has their own treat.


After baking in the oven for 20 minutes and the aroma of chocolate is filling the kitchen, these chocolate delights are done.


We set up these treats and they were gone by halftime. The box only makes 1 dozen, so you may need to buy more than one box.


The gooey chocolate, fudge brownies and chewy cookie mixture makes things all better. This was a great treat when you are in a rush or end up with unexpected company. Goes well with coffee, milk, hot chocolate or tea.

Best part….. It was $3.00 at Walmart!!!

We hope you enjoyed today’s post and we’re glad you stopped by. If you see something that you would like us to feature on the blog, let us know.

Taste Test Tuesday: Hot Chocolate Cupcakes

What do you think of when you think of hot chocolate? How about marshmallows, whipped cream and a steamy rich cup of chocolate velvet. Well today we will experience hot chocolate in a new form….cupcakes!

This is not your typical chocolate cupcake, this cupcake is a combination of devils food cake  and chocolate cake with some marshmallow bites inside. Yes, we said marshmallow bites, they remind you of the mini marshmallows that you find in your cup of hot cocoa.

You can see the marshmallow bites in the cake batter. Very simple and easy to make. Just a reminder the box only makes 12 cupcakes, not 24 like most box mixes.

Now for the frosting (it comes in the box, you have to whip it up real good), it’s marshmallowy goodness.  Just think Fluff, the stuff we used as kids when we didn’t use jelly with our peanut butter sandwiches. This frosting tastes just like it, even has a similar consistency. The frosting is a little sweet so be careful.

Take a look inside and you can see the marshmallows in the batter. Such a warm and tasty treat. We’ve spotted them in Wal-Mart, Aldi’s, Target and some grocery stores, all for under $2.50 a box.

Here’s another treat: They have brownies too!!!


Thanks so much for stopping by the kitchen today, we hope you enjoyed today’s post, eat up!
