After a long day when the kids are in bed, have you ever yearned for just a bite or two of chocolate to go with a cup of tea?

I had this experience just the other evening. I wanted a little something chocolatey, but didn’t want any leftovers. After a quick peruse of the kitchen I put together this sweet little concoction to appease the need…er..want.
- 3 tbsp of chocolate cake mix
- 2 tbsp of diet coke
- nuts, chocolate chips – optional
Put 3 tbsp of cake mix into a small microwave safe bowl or cup:
Then add 2 tbsp of diet coke (or any cola):
Stir it until smooth, then sprinkle with nuts and chocolate chips:
I microwaved this for 30 seconds on high, then checked it and microwaved it for 10 more seconds. It will be piping hot, let it set for a few minutes before serving. You will need to monitor your cooking time as it will vary depending on your microwave. It will easily over cook.
This is a quick and tasty treat!
I wish I could take credit for this idea, but I was inspired by this brownie recipe I found on Pinterest.
To take care of that opened cake mix, I’m using it in a dessert for work on Friday. It will be gone for good!
Enjoy your delicious chocolate cake!
