If you children enjoy getting in the kitchen, this is a great recipe for them to make. If you are using small cups, I would suggest letting them mix the ingredients in a bowl and then pouring the batter into a cup. Younger children should not take the mug out of the microwave, they are very hot.
Are your the wheels in your brain rolling? It would be fun to create a microwave mug cake bar. Set out all of the ingredients you think would be great on or in your chocolate mug cake and let your kids (both big and small) choose their own additions or toppings.
