No time to cook - chocolate edition

So I read about this NTTC (no time to cook) challenge over at Gel's Kitchen. It sounded like fun so I figured I'd give it a whirl!

Of course I needed to use some of the hazelnut spread I posted about yesterday! So with that as my inspiration I came up with this quick single serving dessert!

Chocolate hazelnut cake with strawberries in a hurry [Serves 1]

Checklist : small Pyrex bowl / 3 Tbs low sugar chocolate cake mix / 2 Tbs water / hazelnut spread / strawberries

Task : Mix cake mix and water in your small Pyrex bowl until smooth without lumps, microwave for about 30-45 seconds (may be more/less in different microwaves) top with a dab of hazelnut spread and a strawberry.


And don't forget about the giveaway... TOMORROW!!!! So come back and see!

What an interesting idea! I certainly wouldn't have thought of using cake mix for something like this.

I'm glad you all like this idea! John totally makes fun of me when I make this... "seriously who else in the world MICROWAVES chocolate cake mix..." hahaha well now I can say it's NOT just me :D

Stacey said...

Good idea to use the spread as a cake. Nice way to reinvent something.
