If you have a craving for chocolate and a massive sweet tooth then this Crockpot Chocolate Lava Cake recipe is for you! I found this recipe on Pinterest and knew I had to try it.
What I like most about this recipe is it’s simplicity. Just a few ingredients thrown in a crockpot for a couple of hours. Not fuss, just walk away and come back to a hot and gooey delicious cake.
What you get is a moist rich cake with pockets of hidden pudding surprises. A little goes a long way since it is so rich but nothing a scoop of vanilla ice cream can’t fix. The ice cream helps to mellow out that sweetness just a bit.
The recipe makes a lot of cake since smaller servings are best. Hubby and I barely put a dent in ours so there’s lots leftover in the fridge for later tonight!
Quick and Easy Crockpot Chocolate Lava Cake
boxed chocolate cake mix
1 & ¼ cup milk
½ cup vegetable oil
1 small box instant chocolate pudding
2 cups milk
12 oz bag milk chocolate chips
(To keep the cake from sticking and burning around the edges it’s recommended that you line the crockpot with parchment paper before you begin.)
1. With your mixer, blend together the cake mix, 1 1/4 cups milk, oil and eggs until smooth and glossy. Pour into the lined crockpot.
2. Either with your mixer or by hand, whisk together the 2 cups milk and pudding mix. Mix it for a few minutes until it thickens up. Pour it into the crockpot on top of the cake batter but don’t stir them together.
3. Sprinkle the bag of milk chocolate chips on top, also do not stir them in. Just let them rest on the top.
4. Cover with the lid and cook on low for about 2 1/2 hours. You want the cake to be set but it’s ok if the middle is a tad bit jiggly. Let cool just a bit before serving with your favorite toppings.
