I love Valentine's Day.
Actually, I love any excuse to eat a large amount of treats!! I have the biggest sweet tooth ever.
That's why I love creating sweet treats like these that are actually good for you so you feel like you're indulging in something sinful when you really aren't!
Anyway, mug cakes are seriously amazing (I don't know how I am just now hopping on the bandwagon).
A single serving cake made in the microwave and ready in 5 minutes or less.
Can't get much better than that!! Make one for you and one for your sweetheart this V-Day and enjoy the heck out of your guilt-free chocolatey sweet treat!
PS - here are a few more Valentine's Day treats that you'll love! Valentine's Day Vanilla Cupcakes, Healthy Chocolates, Chocolate Cookie Dough Bites, and Healthy Chocolate Covered Strawberries!
