1 very cute coffee mug
1 index card
piece of decorative ribbon
gift tissue or even wrapping paper (tissue works best)
sandwich size self sealing bag
4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons Hershey's cocoa
3 tablespoons chocolate chips
1.Place ingredients in the bag.
This is more presentable if you can get the ingredients to 'layer' in the bag.Because of it's size , they probably won't but that's okay.
2. You can place a to and from stitcker or tag on the front of the index card or write 'Merry Christmas' , however you want to decorate the front of the card. On the back you'll write the following instructions:
(Mix dry ingredients in cup, add 1 egg, stir well, 3 tablespoons milk,stir well, 3 tablespoons oil, stir well, vanilla to taste ,stir well. Microwave for 3 minutes ( for a 1000 watt microwave) ,you may need to adjust time if microwave is a different wattage.The cake will rise high but will not spill out of the cup.You can add butter after cooking and let it melt , eat right out of the cup or on a saucer.)
3. Punch a hole in the corner of the index card, place bag inside the tissue and tie at the top. Run one end of the ribbon through the hole in the index card and tie a bow. Place in the cup and you're done!
Hope you enjoy this one!
'til next time,
