Peanut Butter Chocolate Mug Cake Recipe

Peanut Butter Chocolate Mug Cake Recipe


  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 or 3 Tbsp sugar (I don't like my desserts too sweet, you can add another Tsbp)
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 heaping Tbsp Reese spread


  1. In a small bowl whisk together the dry ingredients and the Reese's spread. Then add the milk and oil, whisk again until it's smooth. Pour the batter in a microwave safe mug. I believe mine was a 10 ounce.
  2. The batter with rise and then deflate quickly.
  3. Also keep in mind that the wattage in eachmicrowave is different. I cooked it for 75 seconds. I believe 70 second would have worked just fine.
  4. Remove carefully, and while still hot add a Tbsp of Reese's spread on top for that extra yumminess!

My family seriously can’t get enough, they are HUGE peanut butter chocolate fans so it’s no wonder they’d like this all of the time. Actually since it’s so easy to make my daughter has taken to whipping up a batch herself now for her and her friends when they come over. It seems to be a hit with everyone.

Not so secret weapon of this recipe – the Reese Peanut Butter Chocolate Spread – yum!


Make sure to have plenty of Reese Peanut Butter Chocolate Spread on hand as everyone will be asking for more of this yummy Peanut Butter Chocolate Mug Cake.

That’s why I warned you that you might want to have extra ingredients on hand and if your family is like mine you definitely want more than one jar of the Reese Peanut Butter Chocolate Spread in the cupboard. Just to make sure you get to try it yourself before it’s all gone, don’t let the family  know you’ve made it until you’ve had your own mug of this yummy treat.
