"I had this at friend's house and had to have the recipe! He didn't know where he got it but he knows the date - it was on the receipt he wrote the recipe on. Great when you want just one serving of dessert."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Mix flour, sugar, cocoa powder, chocolate chips, baking powder, 1 pinch salt, cayenne pepper, and cinnamon in a bowl. Whisk milk, canola oil, egg, and vanilla extract together in a separate bowl; stir into flour mixture. Lightly press caramels into kosher salt.
  2. Pour batter into a microwave-safe mug; top with salted caramels.
  3. Cook in microwave until desired consistency is reached, 75 to 100 seconds.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • I mix up single servings and store in an airtight container for a quick snack. You can add wheat germ or flax seed to make it healthier (and you feel better about it). Also, try it with carob powder if you want.

Delicious! Have made it 3 times yet and I tried using Nestle Chocolate Chips with Caramel in them and it was even better than plain chocolate chips. 95 seconds was perfect timing for our microw...
