Before you had kids, Valentine’s Day was a fun holiday for you and your partner, at the very least, a restaurant meal where no one needed their food cut up or help wiping their butt.
Those days are long gone now that you have kids and unless you want to shell out money for a babysitter and an expensive Valentine menu served by a bitter waiter (who would rather be with his girlfriend), you’re probably not planning on anything terribly romantic. And that’s fitting, because your kids are center stage now with the Valentine’s shenanigans.
After all, they’ll have the class party, where you probably have to send in a treat. They’ll need to fill out cards for the whole class and you are at the kitchen table for what feels like eternity while they write out every. last. one. The party’s over! 💓💓💓
So I thought to make and share this Chocolate Mug Cakes for Two are quick and easy, delicious, portion-controlled, chocolate desserts for you and your sweetheart that are perfect for Valentine’s Day or any day you would like a mini chocolate cake for one or two.
Thing you need:
Self raising flour 1/3 cup
Cocoa powder 2 tbsp
Sugar 2 tbsp
Brown sugar 2 tbsp
Milk 1/4 cup
Butter 2tbsp, melted
Vanilla essence 1/2 tsp
Mini chocolate chips 1/4 cup
Despite these differences, all of my Valentine’s Day spent with my kids and hubby are the best ones yet. All the heart shaped paper cards they make me are far better than two dozen red roses... Alhumdulilah!
