We spent most of last week visiting with our older son and his family in CO. This visit was especially exciting because we had gone over about fours weeks earlier to help them pack up some of their stuff in preparation of moving into a new house. We didn't get to see inside the house when we were there then so this was our first time to go inside. We loved the house and are so happy for them all.

Our last night there our dil Sara surprised us with this delicious Slow Cooker Chocolate Lava Cake. We had gone to the grocery store earlier in the afternoon and bought four different kinds of ice cream not knowing that we would be enjoying it with the cake.

This is a great cake to make when you want a cake but don't want to heat up your house baking it in the oven.




1         box Super Moist Chocolate Fudge Cake mix
1-1/4   cups milk
1/2      cup oil
3         eggs

Lava Topping:

1         box (4 serving size) instant chocolate pudding mix
2         cups milk
1         12 - oz bag of milk chocolate chips

Beat together the cake mix, milk, oil, and eggs in a large bowl with an electric mixer until batter is smooth (about 2 minutes)

Spray large slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray so the cake won't stick.

Pour cake batter into the slow cooker and smooth over the bottom.

In a mixing bowl, combine the milk and pudding mix until smooth.

Pour pudding mixture over the top of the cake batter in the slow cooker. Do NOT stir.

Sprinkle chocolate chips over top with stirring.

Place lid on top and cook on HIGH for 2  hours. (If you are using a smaller slow cooker, the cake will be thicker and will need to cook longer.)

When it is done, the cake is on top and the pudding (lava) is underneath.

Allow cake to cool and set up. Then serve alone or with a scoop of ice cream.
