My favorite time of the year has always been the Fall and Winter months. It’s the time of the year I can snuggle up in baggy sweat pants, fuzzy socks and indulge in warm desserts (without too much guilt). This year I’m finding ways to make my favorite desserts tastier with an ingredient you might have thought was only reserved for coffee. International Delight gourmet coffee creamers come in so many wonderful flavors it would be a shame to limit them to a hot mug of coffee, especially when you can enjoy them in a hot mug of CAKE.

Peppermint Mocha Chocolate Mug Cake

While I was out shopping I discovered the amazing selection of seasonal International Delight creamers that includes: Hershey’s S’mores, Pumpkin Pie Spice, Salted Caramel Mocha, White Chocolate Raspberry and my personal favorite, Peppermint Mocha.

This particular flavor was so delicious that I knew it would be perfect for a holiday mug cake that only needs a few simple ingredients and a dash or two of the Peppermint Mocha creamer. Together, it’s the perfect single serving dessert (or shareable dessert with someone you love) on a cold night.
