crockpot week–chocolate lava cake

I know “crockpot week” was LAST week, but I feel as though I cheated you out of that fifth recipe (since last Friday was national polka dot day…click here for that post).

Anyway, here is the final recipe for crockpot week, and it’s the best one…CHOCOLATE LAVA CAKE!  Yum!!

Ingredients…

  • box of chocolate cake mix
  • 3 1/4 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • box (approximately 4 oz) instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 12 oz chocolate chips

Cover the crockpot and cook on low for 2 1/2 – 3 1/2 hours, depending on how fast your crockpot cooks.

This cake is best served warm, AND with some vanilla ice cream.  My daughter said it is “sooooo chocolatey”…so the vanilla ice cream is perfect with it!
