Superhero Babysitter Fail

Today I made mug cakes with my kids. I've made them before and they're delicious! So, I found a recipe on Pinterest and followed it. I was so excited that my kids and their friend would be able to make yummy cake and I'd be a superhero!  It was...an adventure.

ingredients!

chocolate chips

their least favorite part was the mixing

but like all kids, they love making a mess

eating their mug cakes in the fort i made them!
 Disclaimer: The kids actually hated the mug cakes. They said "there was too much chocolate," um, excuse me? There's no such thing as too much chocolate. Chocolate is delicious and amazing. I told them to suck it up and eat it and be happy about it. No I didn't, I told them if they didn't like it they didn't have to eat it. About ten minutes later, they brought their barely-eaten mug cakes to the kitchen and asked for chips instead. I was sad. And then I tried it.

It was not yummy.
how they really felt about their mug cakes

Hahah my dad works at a go cart track down here and after a kid got in a wreck this week and started crying. So Dad literally told him to suck it up, and sent him on his way. These kids are crazy though for too much chocolate! Weirdos. ;)
