Homemade Gift - Chocolate Mug Cake Mix

Homemade Gift – Chocolate Mug Cake Mix

I love giving homemade gifts and this one couldn’t be any easier.  A simple microwave mug cake mix with a personalised mug that includes the directions to make the mug cake.  I will be using these as teachers gifts but of course these make the perfect gift for any chocolate lover.

INGREDIENTS

2 Cups Self Raising Flour
8 Tbs Cocoa
8 Tbs Sugar
250gm Dark Chocolate Chips

Packaging etc

1 x 800ml Glass Canister – purchased from KMart.  This is the Christmas canister and it was $4.
1 x Ziplock Bag
1 x 300ml White Mug – purchased from KMart for $1
1 x Sharpie

 

LETS PUT IT ALL TOGETHER

  1. In a large bowl combine the flour, sugar and cocoa.  Pour into the glass canister.
  2. Transfer the chocolate chips into a ziplock bag, remove the excess air and place on top of the mix.  Close the lid.

To make the mug with handwritten instructions:

You will need a Sharpie pen, I went for the fine point one.

Write the following on the mug:

Microwave Chocolate Mug Cake

*Add 1/3 Cup of Mix

*1 Tbs Butter

*1/4 Cup Milk

*Mix Together with a fork

*Microwave on high for 1 minute

*Sprinkle Choc chips on top.

**Included my sons name on the handle.

Place the mug into a 180 degree Celsius oven for 30 minutes.  Turn off the oven and leave to cool inside the oven to avoid cracking from a change in temperature.  The mug is now able to be washed and used.

I will be packaging this up in a gift bag along with a lovely tea towel and adding a bunch of fresh flowers on the morning that we take it to school.
