WHY MAKE DESSERT FOR ONE?

I am the mom of a large family and it is unusual for me to make a dessert recipe without doubling it.

Nevertheless, sometimes I am actually home alone and I want some dessert. A recipe for a dessert for one can come in very handy. 

There are so many amazing microwave mug recipes you can make to fix that sudden craving for sweets! 

Another good reason to make dessert for one is portion control! I have a little trouble when there is a whole pan of marshmallow treats on the counter. 

This is also a good choice when one of the kids wants a sweet snack and we don’t have anything made up. 

INGREDIENTS FOR MICROWAVE RICE KRISPIE TREAT 

There are only four ingredients in this fast and easy treat. People who love rice krispie treats usually have these ingredients on hand at all times!

HOW TO MAKE A MICROWAVE RICE KRISPIE TREAT FOR ONE

I love recipes that only require a spoon and a mug! This is a great starter recipe for kids too. I love to use colorful ramekins for this recipe too! 

If you want to change up the flavor of your treat try making it with strawberry flavored marshmallows.

STEP ONE: MELT BUTTER & MARSHMALLOWS

Place 1/4 tablespoon of butter into the bottom of a mug or ramekin that is microwave-safe.

Add 5 large marshmallows to the mug and microwave the mug for 30-60 seconds or until the marshmallows start to puff up and the butter is completely melted.

STEP TWO: MAKE RICE KRISPIE TREAT

Take the mug out of the microwave and pour the rice krispies into the mug and stir to combine the ingredients. 

If you like sprinkles you can stir them in now.

Eat this right out of the mug or spoon it into a bowl.
