Have you ever prepared or eaten a three-ingredient dessert? Now you can with this simple, decadent mug cake made with hazelnut spread, eggs and chocolate chips. Just whisk the ingredients together in a mug and microwave. It’s really that easy! When it’s finished, this sweet creation resembles a chocolate molten-lava cake. Since you won’t use the entire package of chocolate chips, store the remaining morsels in a Ziploc® Brand Bag and store in a cool, dry place in your pantry. This is a great dessert option for when you have unexpected guests. This chocolaty dessert is fun and easy to serve as individual desserts for each guest; just make sure to let them cool before taking a bite. For a great aesthetic, use different mugs for each person!
