1. Chocolate Fudge Smores Mug Cake

Although the reward is sweet (pun totally intended), the process of making smores is not always that much fun. You have to stand over a hot fire, get blasted by smoke, and your marshmallow usually ends up either burnt or undercooked. And, your hands are covered in chocolate and marshmallow residue. Here’s the solution to this sticky problem — an ooey gooey treat that you can make in only five minutes, no smoke or hot fires required. Check out the recipe via How Sweet It Is.

2. Roasted Tomato Soup With Grilled Cheddar

If the name alone doesn’t make your mouth water, I’m not sure what will. Next time you come home from a long day and are looking for something you can throw together quickly, pull out some tomatoes, cheese, a couple of odds and ends, and your handy-dandy mug. You’ll have yourself a top-notch, comfort food feast in no time. Check out the recipe via Smitten Kitchen.


3. Banana French Toast

French toast is a special breakfast – a treat for a special occasion, a lazy Sunday, or when you go out with friends. But, it’s both time consuming and somewhat challenging to make just right. With a mug, anything is possible. Any day can be a French toast day of the week, and not just plain French toast either — banana french toast. Now that is luxury. Check out the recipe via Steph’s Bite by Bite.

4. Sausage and Cheese Spaghetti Dinner

Having to cook yourself actual food can be a pain (and let’s be clear, heating up a frozen pizza does not count as “cooking”), especially when you are tired and hungry. Well, have no fear, the mug is here! Throw together the ingredients — Italian sausage, pasta, garlic, shredded cheese and spices, microwave, and within minutes you’ll have a tasty treat (but don’t tell your Italian grandmother). Check out the recipe via Lady and Pups.

5. Chocolate Chip Cookie

Cookies aren’t that hard to make, but using a mug will revolutionize your cookie game. Gone are the days of intensive stirring of boatloads of batter and greasing up enormous cookie sheets. With a cookie in a mug, things are quick and easy, not to mention you won’t have the opportunity to eat yourself through an entire dozen (we’ve all been there). Check out the recipe via No. 2 Pencil.
