My love for chocolate is a well known fact.. and give me a Chocolate Mug Cake any day. So, I went on a mission to develop a Mug Cake that met all of my favorite things in treats. A little sweet, a hint of salt, and decadent chocolate. Oreos and dark chocolate it was. I went through countless versions trying to find the exact right combination.

You are going to love the light texture, Oreo flavor and the rich decadent dark chocolate spread throughout. The Oreos provide an almost fudgy quality. It is one of my favorite little treats when I need a pick-me-up. 7 ingredients and 3 minutes to perfection!

Recipe Additions or Substitutions

I will always and forever be a dark chocolate girl. However, I know that not everyone agrees with me on that. Milk or semi-sweet chocolate chips can be used in place of the dark chocolate wafers.

You can top your cooked mug cake with whipped cream, cool whip, another crushed Oreo or even ice cream. Sometimes I like to top mine off with a little bit of caramel drizzle.

If you really want a treat to knock you off your feet, top it off with a scoop of ice cream and any additional toppings that speak to you. You really can’t go wrong!
