(Makes one serving)

1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
3 1/2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
4-5 marshmallows

  1. Combine 3 tablespoons butter and 1/4 cup of chocolate chips in a small bowl, then melt in the microwave for 20-30 seconds. Set aside.
  2. In another bowl, combine 1/2 tablespoon melted butter with 2-3 tablespoons of graham cracker crumbs and stir until moistened. Press graham crumbs into the bottom of your mug.
  3. In a bowl whisk egg, sugar and vanilla until smooth.
  4.  In another bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and cocoa
  5. Combine flour mixture to egg mixture and fold in additional chocolate chips.
  6. Add chocolate and butter bowl to batter
  7. Pour half of the mixture on top of the graham crust, then put in a few marshmallows. Add remaining batter on top, then pop in the microwave for 1 minute and 30 seconds.
  8. Remove and top with more marshmallows (we put them in a toaster oven for a few seconds to make them nice and toasty)
