Like eating and baking, but don’t like the work? Nothing could be easier (or tastier!) than this microwaveable chocolate muffin.

I like chocolate just as much as the next guy, actually no… a lot more than the next guy. That’s why it’s hard to say no to seconds (or thirds!). That’s one of the reasons I like these recipes that make only one serving. However, why would you go to so much work making homemade muffins if it’s just for one little muffin? So I like to do microwave baking now and then. It literally takes seconds to mix up a little something in a mug and then microwave it for a couple of minutes. It tastes amazing and can fix that nagging chocolate craving right away.
