I can't think of a better combination than peanut butter and chocolate. This easy peanut butter mug cake combines my favorite two condiments for a great quick dessert. Best part is that it only makes enough for one, so you don't have to share!

This simple recipe is also dorm-friendly, especially with this quick tip: you can buy flour, sugar, and baking soda in small quantities from the bulk section of most grocery stores to avoid buying more than you need.

    Microwave for 1 minute, if it isn't quite cooked continue to microwave for 15 sec intervals until finished. Feel free to test it to check if its completely cooked. You don't need to worry too much though because there is no egg. Now enjoy your chocolatey mug masterpiece!
