Chocolate Peanut Butter Mug Cake with Peanut Butter Pie Mousse

It's BIRTHDAY time!  Michael's birthday is this week.  Since it falls in the middle of the week and we will be celebrating with family this coming weekend with Sunday Brunch, he decided that he didn't want a huge cake with all of the unnecessary leftovers.  Coming from a sweet-tooth addict, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to make him a special birthday treat, so I decided to make him a mug cake.  He picked this decadent Mug Cake that turned out the be the perfect birthday treat!

THE PEANUT BUTTER MOUSSE alone is to die for.  It's so rich and creamy and when dolloped onto the warm cake, it just melted into the cake to add an even bigger peanut butter explosion!
