The holidays sort of snuck up on me. It is not even Thanksgiving yet, but I took my youngest to the mall the other day to pick out a birthday present, and well…Santa was already there. Honestly, I was super surprised. As you know, I am a MAJOR holiday enthusiast, but it made me just a little bit sad that He was already there. I mean, we haven’t had Thanksgiving yet.
But want to know what did NOT make me sad? That the Hallmark Gold Crown already had Crafters & Co. Peppermint Bark! My daughter loves their stuffed animal collection, and I went in intending to get her a Minnie Mouse (she is obsessed) and the Minnie Baking Kit, which is totally cute. But instead of just getting those few things I walked out with a sack full. And you better believe in that sack was a big old tin of Crafters & Co. Peppermint bark along with the cutest little Itty Bitty’s Star Wars characters, to use as gifts for some of the Star Wars lovers in my life.
Anyway, I didn’t even make it a day before I cracked open the tin and started tasting Christmas! After I snarfed half the package I thought it would be super fun to use some of the peppermint bark to try and make a lava cake. I could just imagine the ooey, gooey, running chocolate and peppermint nestled in a delightful chocolate cake barrier.
BUT…I really did not want a whole cake. So I opted to make a mug cake instead. I had found a great lava mug cake recipe a while back from CleoButtera, and thought I would try using the peppermint bark in it! Total success.
And I can’t even begin to tell you how easy this mug cake is to make. In fact, I am not going to bother telling you, I am just going to show you:
Insanely easy right? And how cute is that mug? As soon as I saw it, I had to get it. It was so festive. And a great size for making this mug cake. Honestly, I could barely carry my package out of Hallmark Gold Crown, everything there is just so cute.
Anyway, I highly recommend you making this insanely tasty mug cake! And if you need fun gift ideas, or cute decor, might I recommend Hallmark? Just sayin’
