Goetze’s is hosting a recipe contest this fall season to celebrate their 100th anniversary! I decided to enter and see what I can come up with. Their caramel creams are so delicious, that I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to create a yummy recipe with them! So, I thought and thought, and finally figured out what I wanted to do. Being a parent is hard work, and sometimes at the end of the day we want a little indulgence. Most of the time, we are too tired to even consider making a dessert, so I’ve found a way to have your dessert without spending hours cooking it!
For this contest I have found the perfect recipe for a delicious, caramel filled, mug cake. This cake is filling, and can be completed entirely in less than 10 minutes! As a tired mama bear, I can tell you that being able to fix a dessert in a small amount of time is truly a blessing!
Busy Day Caramel Mug Cake
By Majenica Moles
What you will need:
- 1 store bought mug cake of your choice (I used Duncan Hines)
- 1 Mug
- 5 Goetze’s Caramel Creams Candies
- 3 Tablespoons water
- 1 Tablespoon Half & Half
- Cutting Board
Pour pouch of mug cake into your mug. Add 3 Tablespoons of water, stir well.
Take 3 of the Caramel Creams and chop them into small pieces. Add to your mug, stir well.
Microwave about 1 minute, or until set. My microwave is 700 watts, and 1 minutes was perfect. After it’s done, let it sit to cool while making the topping.
Chop 2 Caramel Creams and stir together with 1 Tablespoon Half & Half.
Microwave in 5 second increments until candy is melted. Stir well to make a caramel sauce.
Drizzle or spread on top of your mug cake, and enjoy!
