This right here ladies and gentlemen, is why I bought a crock pot. Look at all that chocolate deliciousness, you can almost taste the molten lava cake as it melts in your mouth. And another great part is the easy clean up, and we all know I love easy clean up.
1 box chocolate cake mix 1 1/4 C milk 1/2 C vegetable or canola oil 3 eggs 1 (3.9 ounce) instant chocolate pudding 2 C milk (I used 1 %) 1 (12 ounce) bag milk chocolate chips parchment paper
1. Grab a 3-4 quart crock pot and line it with parchment paper. Spray the inside of the paper with cooking spray. The parchment paper helps the cake cook without burning along the edges. You can make it without the paper, just be sure to watch it closely. 2. Find yourself a nice chocolate cake mix and pour it into your stand mixer or medium-sized mixing bowl. 3. Add 1 1/4 cup milk, 1/2 cup oil and 3 eggs. Beat on low-speed for 1 minutes. Scrape the bottom of the bowl and beat on medium speed for 2-3 minutes or until the batter in nice and glossy. 4. Pour the batter into the lined crock pot. 5. Pour one small box of chocolate pudding into your stand mixer or medium-sized mixing bowl. Add 2 cups cold milk and beat it until the pudding thickens. Should take about 3-4 minutes. 6. Pour the pudding over the top of the cake batter. Don't stir it. Really, cross my heart and hope to die. It will cook up best if you leave the layers be. 7. Grab a bag of milk chocolate chips and pour the pretty little things all over the top of the pudding. Again, please do not stir it. 8. Cover the crock and cook on low for 2 1/2 hours, or until the top of the cake is set. The bottom layer of the cake will be all gooey and soft. Yum. 9. Place some on a plate and add a cool scoop of ice cream or whipped cream right on top.
