Best Valentine's Day Dessert Ever! 2 mins in a cup!

Every Valentine's Day I want something super chocolately super decadent and super indulgent! Its a day where I don't have to feel guilty about it so if I'm going to do it, I'm going to do it right! And this recipe does it right! I saw this recipe on The Family Kitchen and just HAD to try it! Besides containing two of my all time favs, chocolate & salted caramel....best of all there's no batters, there's no mixers, all you need is a mug and a sweet tooth! From start to finish this recipe takes 5 minutes, leaving your Valentine's night free for other things.... :)

Salted Caramel Mug Cake
What you’ll need: {makes 2 mug cakes}
8 tablespoons all purpose flour
8 tablespoons sugar
6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs – beaten
6 tablespoons skim milk
2 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 salted caramels
What to do: 
1. Into a small bowl add: flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, salt, egg, milk, and vegetable oil. Mix to combine.
2. Pour mixture into a regular sized coffee mug. Drop caramels into center of mixture one at a time.
3. Microwave on high for one minute and 30 seconds. If needed {if cake batter is still gooey}, microwave on high for up to an additional 30 seconds.
I also added a little sprinkle of sea salt on the top just to salty it up just a bit.  Delish!
