My kids have gotten into the dessert kick lately. They must have a dessert every single night. Their desserts vary from a bowl of ice cream, a cookie, or a Popsicle. Regardless of what they chose, they always have a dessert almost every night.

And that got me thinking, what about me? I deserve a dessert too! After schlepping them to school and games and cleaning and cooking, mom deserves a treat too! The only problem? I like a little something more than bowl of ice cream or a popsicle for my dessert.

Which is why I was so excited when I was introduced to Duncan Hines’ Perfect Size for 1. Perfect Size for 1 is an individually portioned pouch of cake mix which means there are no leftovers or waste. The best part? They can made in an 8-oz. coffee mug in about a minute. Yup, just one minute!

While the Perfect Size for 1 is great on it’s on, I have been having fun customizing my treats to switch things up. I’ve tried making them with coffee instead of water. Adding chocolate chips. But my favorite customization is adding a 1 minute ganache to the Chocolate Lover’s Cake. I mean the only way to improve Chocolate Lover’s Cake is by adding even more chocolate!
