America’s Test Kitchen: Individual-serving mug cakes are berry easy to make for you and a friend

America's Test Kitchen on

Did you know that when chocolate first came to the United States, it was more common to drink it than to eat it? In the 18th century, New Yorkers were known to grate chocolate into hot water and enjoy it as a beverage, often in the morning. That chocolaty breakfast drink (yum!) evolved into the chocolate candy bar in the mid-19th century, and chocolate has been made into all sorts of sweet treats, including mug cakes, ever since.
