Chocolate Lava Cake -- Crock-Pot Style


This recipe is just in time for Valentine's Day since I "heart" lava cake and all! It looks so pretty in little ramekins, but it takes a lot of ramekins to feed this family so we go the easier route: the good 'ol crock pot! This way I can pop it in early afternoon and it's ready after dinner. It's ooey gooey fudgey goodness is extra special paired with some ice cream, a dollop of whipped cream and a cherry on top! Enjoy!

1 package Fudge cake mix (I like Betty Crocker's best)
3 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 2/3 cups water
1 package Jello-O Chocolate Flavor Instant Pudding Mix
2 cups cold milk
1 bag (12 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips

Mix together cake mix, eggs, oil and water. Pour into crock-pot.

Make Jello-O pudding using the milk. Pour over the cake mix in the crock-pot. Sprinkle chocolate chips all over the top of the batter.

Cook in the crock-pot on high for about 2-3 hours until the cake is still moist but doesn't jiggle.

Note: You may want to spray the sides of your crock-pot so the cake doesn't stick to it. You can also bake this in the oven 350 degrees for about 25-30 minutes...again, until moist but not jiggly.

I made this today. Wow. So easy and everyone loved it. Though, I didn't have much lava by the time they were done. Maybe my oven runs a little hot! Good thing we ate dessert before dinner ;)
