These Microwave S’mores Mug Cakes are so easy even Kenya and Chloe made them on their own. You just mix the batter in a bowl and layer the marshmallows and chocolate in a good sized mug. Press one minute on your microwave and you’ll enjoy one of the most delectable desserts you’ve ever tried. It’s sweet, gooey with a deep chocolate brownie inside sandwiched between a graham cracker crust and gooey marshmallows you won’t be able to resist.

  1. We made this recipe and followed it perfectly. The result was that it came out cake-like. It does not look like the picture at all. I wonder what happened?

  2. Hi! Thank you again for such great recipes and healthy inspirations!! Do you think cacao would be a good replacement to the cocoa? Thank you!

  3. In Step 1 it is 1 tablespoon of butter to mix with the crushed graham crackers. And then in Step 2 its the remaining 3 tablespoons butter to mix into the cake mix!

  4. So excited to make this. In the video, you said to melt 1 tablespoon of butter for the brownie part but the recipe says to melt 3 tablespoons…please let me know which is correct!
