MogoBlog MogoLicious Tasty Tip of the Day:   These mug cakes have a molten, fudgy, ooey-gooey interior and a cakey exterior, almost identical to a lava cake. These delectable, individual “cakes” are decadent, super chocolaty, sweet, rich, warm and completely comforting.

Snickers Lava Mug Cake


  • 4 TBS All Purpose Flour
  • 4 TBS Granulated Sugar
  • 3 TBS Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • ¼ tsp Baking Powder
  • ¼ Scant tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1 Large Egg – beaten
  • 3 TBS Whole Milk or Half & Half
  • 1 TBS Vegetable Oil
  • 2 Mini Snickers Bars
  • 1 Salted Caramel
  • Optional Toppings: Whipped Cream, roughly chopped Roasted
  • Peanuts, Salted Caramel Sauce

Directions (make in your MogoBox Mug):

  1. In a small bowl combine: flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Add egg, milk and vegetable oil. Whisk to combine.
  2. Transfer 1/4th of the mixture to a regular sized coffee mug. Drop one mini snickers into the center. Top with another 1/4th of the cake mixture. Drop the caramel into the center. Top with another 1/4th of the cake mixture and another snickers. Top with the remaining cake mixture.
  3. Place mug in microwave and microwave on high for 1 minute and 15 seconds to 1 minute and 30 seconds, microwaving it in 30 second increments to prevent it from spilling over. Check mug cake, if batter is still too gooey, microwave an additional 30 seconds.  But be careful!  You want the mug cake to still be a tad bit gooey and not dry/overcooked.
  4. Top with whipped cream, roasted peanuts and salted caramel sauce. Enjoy!


  • The cake will rise significantly while microwaving.  To prevent it from spilling over, make sure you microwave it in 30 second increments.  Also, using a tall coffee mug is recommended.
