What could be better than a hot chocolate brownie mug cake shot? Don't you think the words hot chocolate and brownie should always go together?
Add to that a hint of orange, and this dessert becomes heavenly. The bonus? I called these "shots" because they are made in cappuccino "mugs." They are the perfect little dessert, and so easy!
When I decided to make this, I had to decide - should I use coffee and chocolate, or hot chocolate?
I love my coffee, but something about the Midnight Dark Chocolate Hot Cocoa spoke to me.
The perfect accompaniment to one of these Hot Chocolate Brownie Mug Cake Shots would be a cup of coffee. Enjoy!
