Halloween Candy Cake
Excerpted from 5-Minute Mug Cakes by Jennifer Lee
If you’re looking for ways to use up leftover Halloween candy, check out this recipe: The chocolate cake base is made with plain chocolate bars, like Hershey’s milk or dark chocolate. It’s then studded with candies of your choice, such as Snickers, Reese’s, and M&M’s—whatever the trick-or-treaters have left behind!
¼ cup (1.5oz) chopped plain chocolate bars (like Hershey’s milk or dark chocolate)
3 tbsp (45ml) fat-free milk
2 tbsp (15g) all-purpose flour
¼ tsp baking powder
½ tbsp (7.5ml) vegetable oil
2 tbsp chopped chocolate candies of your choice (like Snickers, Reese’s, M&M’s)
Combine chopped plain chocolate and milk in an oversized microwave-safe mug. Microwave for about 40 seconds. Mix with a small whisk until chocolate is completely melted.
Add flour, baking powder, and oil and whisk until batter is smooth. Stir in chopped candy. Cook in microwave for about 1 minute. If cake is not done, heat an additional 15 seconds. Let cake cool a few
minutes. Cake is best consumed while still warm or within a few hours of it being cooked.
