Easy Chocolate & Salted Caramel Mug Cake

I see a lot of different types of Mug Cakes on Pinterest and this Salted Caramel one caught my eye.  I had all the ingredients in my cupboards except the caramel, but I did have caramel sauce so I tried that.  Note to self: caramel sauce does not work the same in recipes as regular caramel.  The cake turned out great and delicious, just not much of caramel flavor as I was hoping for.  So I just drizzled caramel sauce over the cake and the ice cream I put on it!
