Triple Chocolate Crock Pot Cake

slow cooker triple chocolate cake

I love how my house smells when the slow cooker is running.  Usually a gorgeous roast or pot of beans with a ham bone is the fare of the day.  The aromas permeate the entire house giving it a homey feeling.  However, when I turn my crock pot into a dessert machine, everyone starts walking around with bowls and spoons clamoring for something chocolate.  The tantalizing smells say “Eat all of your dinner because dessert is going to be great!”

I love how easy this recipe is.  You throw the ingredients into a bowl and stir.  There is no need to turn on a mixer.  Pour the batter into the crock pot, turn it on and forget about it.  The last time I made this, I lined my crock pot with foil and then sprayed the foil generously with PAM.  The foil made the clean up a breeze and allowed me to get all the leftovers out easily.

My family calls this “Cake meets brownies.”  The cake is super moist, almost like a steamed pudding.  The flavor is pure chocolate.  You could easily substitute flavors.  Use a yellow cake mix, vanilla pudding and a different variety of chips.  Peanut butter, vanilla or butterscotch would be great and give you an entirely different dessert each time.
