A Chocolate Crock Pot Recipe For The Books

6 easy crockpot meals chocolate cake

This recipe is dangerously delicious and I will not judge you if you eat it all by yourself (I can’t judge if I’ve done it, right?)!

My mother in law makes a famous chocolate cake just like this.  However, she doesn’t make it whenever we want, but only on special occasions like Christmas or birthdays.  She’s known for this cake now and I’m happy to say I think I found the cake recipe that I will make famous!



1 box Betty Crocker devil’s food cake mix

1 1/2 cups caramels (chopped in half)

1 cup Nestle semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 1/2 cups McArthur milk

1 package Jell-O instant chocolate pudding



Line the crock pot with parchment paper to make the cleanup easy.

Combine the milk and the chocolate pudding in a bowl. Add the chocolate cake mix, mix well. Pour mixture into the crock pot.

Place the cut caramels all over the top. Push a few into the batter but let the rest sit on top. They will sink in as they melt.

Cook on high for about 2-3 hours. The cake is ready with the middle is set and doesn’t jiggle.

Remove lid, turn off heat and let the cake sit for 15 minutes before serving



Quick Tip: If you want more of a lava cake, undercook it by just 30-45 minutes
