The lazy days of summer are gone and school has started full force in our house. I saw a meme the other day that said something like, “School has started, time to get your Halloween costumes, Thanksgiving menu, and Christmas present shopping done now, because it’s basically 2020. Happy New Year.”
That seems to be my life in a nutshell. With after school activities, and volunteering, and work, some days it’s all I can do to drag myself out the door sit in the car line for 40 minutes in the afternoon.
That’s why I’m so excited to have found Betty Crocker Mug Treats, which are perfectly portioned for one, for an afternoon pick-me-up indulgence. My favorite is the Cinnamon Roll Cake flavor. YUM.
The best part is that you get a yummy, baked snack from the microwave. Yes, that’s right . No oven needed here.
Just grab your favorite 8- to-10-ounce sized mug, empty the cake mix envelope into the mug, and mix with the amount of milk or water it says on the box.
Once it’s well blended, microwave uncovered on high for about a minute until the top is dry. You can add 10 seconds if it seems to need a bit longer.
Squeeze the cream cheese icing over the cake and let stand for two minutes to finish cooking. It’s that easy!
There are eight yummy flavors to choose from:
- Hot Fudge Brownie with Fudge Topping
- Triple Chocolate Cake with Fudge Frosting
- Cinnamon Roll Cake with Cream Cheese Icing
- Rainbow Chip Cake with Rainbow Mix Frosting
- Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake with Peanut Butter Topping
- Soft-Baked Chocolate Chip Cookie with Fudge Topping
- Chocolate Caramel Cake with Caramel Topping
- Blueberry Muffin with Cream Cheese Glaze
Betty Crocker Mug Treats come in a box of four mixes complete with four topping packs for four perfectly portioned, indulgent servings.
I can’t wait to try the Soft-Baked Chocolate Chip Cookie treat. And I think the Rainbow Chip Cake with Rainbow Mix Frosting would be a fun after-school surprise for my kiddo!
I love that the finished cake is fluffy and light — it’s just what I want when I’m craving something sweet. I also like that it is a portion for one — no overindulging over here!
Betty Crocker Mug Treats are now available in the baking aisle at Walmart and many national retailers. Check your local grocery store!
