I confess, I don't bake very often. Don't get me wrong -- I love cookies, pie, cupcakes, and what-have-you. I just never want a WHOLE batch of them. I just want one little treat for me, maybe two if my son is home with me. That's all!

How much do we love desserts-in-a-mug? Oh, about 13 ways, to be exact! Here are 13 of our favorite dessert-in-a-mug recipes for you to try your own sweet self. Indulgence is just a stir and a zap away ... and the kids' reaction is the icing on the cake. So to speak.
