It’s 10 p.m. and your dessert craving just hit hard. You want something more elevated than store-bought chocolate chip cookies, but you don’t feel like starting a serious baking endeavor just for yourself. That’s why mug cakes are a total godsend. This cookies and cream version is made with just a handful of basic ingredients. Mix everything into a mug and cook it in the microwave for two minutes. Voilà: A single-serve dessert that’ll satisfy your sweet tooth.
