Slow Cooker Chocolate Dump Cake

Visualize if you will a rich dark chocolate brownie warm from the oven. Well, more like a chocolate souffle. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream, melting down over it, and you are in heaven my friend. This, I made for our Christmas dessert. It was very easy to make, just dump the ingredients in the crock pot, turn on low for a few hours and enjoy your reward. It cant get any simpler than this. How something so simple can be so good is beyond me. It just is. Try this, you will be glad you did.

    Fun! What a great idea, especially for cooks like myself who don’t do a lot of baking. I can definitely tackle this!

    What a wonderful idea Veronica! It would free up time in the kitchen to spend with company and still be impressive and taste great.

    Let me know how it goes. I used Breyers Ice cream on top.

    I like that this decadent pudding-like cake is made in the crock-pot. Must be rich and chocolately cooking for over four hours. 🙂

    I love this idea! We’re just about to get our crockpot out of storage when we move in a few weeks and I am totally putting this on my “soon” list. 🙂 Thanks!

    You can make cake in a crockpot?!?! Why am I just now learning this!

    Making this as my first crockpot recipe. Wasn’t sure how many ounces chocolate chips. There are three bag sizes at walmart – tiny, medium and large. LOL!

    Also, since this is my first time using a crockpot and this is a cake, how do I store it? Do I take it out and put it in a new container?

      I want to say it was a 8 oz bag. I would use the small bag. It doesn’t brown up so it looks more like a souffle. It is fantastic warm with vanilla ice cream over top. If you can remove your insert you probably could store it in the insert. To be honest, I have a large family and when I serve this there is never anything left. You could however, scoop it out with a spoon and sore it in a container with a tight fitting lid.

    Looks delicious! Am definitely making this. Is it cooked on high or low?

    I know that the sour cream and instant pudding with a cake mix is great – I do it in a poppy seed cake that my family loves. But in a slow cooker?! that’s crazy – I must try it.
