      This turned out to be a great "Secret Santa" gift for the girls at work. I used Chocolate Fudge Cake, Chocolate Fudge pudding and cocoa for my glaze. I made one to test it out and I was surprised! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you...

      This is such a cute idea!! I want to put these in our christmas baskets this year so I decided to give it a try first to make sure it works out ok :-) I used a yellow cake mix with a white chocolate pudding. Once measured out, the cake & pudding mix make enough for 8 mugs. I was so anxious to give this a try, I ate it right out of the microwave and it was very good!! A word of caution ... I saved 1/2 of it as I wanted my daughter to try it - she came home about an hour later (I had covered the mug with plastic wrap), and after cooling the cake got pretty hard. I am still going to include them in my baskets but will add to my instruction card to glaze and eat soon after cooking. Thanks Mirj, this will be a fun addition to my baskets!
