What you need:
4 tbsp plain flour
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 egg
3 tbsp milk
3 tbsp butter
¼ tsp vanilla essence or peppermint
1 tbsp choc chips (optional)
1 large mug

What to do:

Add dry ingredients to the mug, and mix well.

Crack an egg and add it to your mug. Make sure you  mix it well to avoid any pockets of flour in the corners. Pour in the milk and mix well. Add the vanilla essence.

Pop your mug into the microwave  for 3 minutes on maximum power . Wait until the cake stops rising, and sets in the mug.

Run a knife around the sides of the mug, and tip the still warm cake out of the mug and onto a saucer.

Serve with cream or custard.

What you need:

4oz / 115g icing sugar ( sifted)
2oz / 55g condensed milk
1oz / 25g milk or plain chocolate
few drops of peppermint essence
few drops of green food colouring.

What you do:

In a bowl, mix together the sifted icing sugar, condensed milk & a few drops of peppermint essence. Knead together until it’s a soft dough & firm.
Split the mixture into half.
With the first half, roll out to roughly 1/4″ inch / 5 mm thick, then cut into rounds (or heart shapes) with a small cutter & place on grease proof paper to set. Using a fork gently place onto the rounds to make a pattern on each one.
With the other half add a few drops of green Colouring & knead in until the mixture is all green.
Repeat as with the 1st half, rolling & cutting into shapes.
Place in a cool place to dry.
In a small bowl melt the chocolate. Dip one side of the peppermint creams into the melted chocolate and place on grease proof paper and place in fridge until set.
