Crock Pot Chocolate Lava Cake

It is snowing, and snowing, and snowing!  The DIL is loving it.  She threw snowballs for the dogs to chase, built a snowman, and made a snow angel.  The weather is unusually warm and it is wonderful!
Tucker loving his snowballs!

I made this easy crockpot lava cake, so after the playing in the snow she could come in, have a hot cup of tea and a warm treat.  It was heaven on earth!

Crock Pot Chocolate Lava Cake
A Taste of Home online

1 chocolate cake mix, regular size
1-2/3 cups water
3 large eggs
1/3 cup canola oil
2 cups cold milk
1 pkg. (3.9 oz) instant chocolate pudding
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, water, eggs, and oil; beat on low speed for 30 seconds.  Beat on medium for 2 minutes.  Transfer to a greased 4 qt. slow cooker (I used a crock pot liner instead.  Clean up was so much easier!)

In another bowl, whisk milk and pudding mix for 2 minutes.  Let stand for 2 minutes or until soft set.  Spoon over cake batter sprinkle with chocolate chips.  Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours or until toothpick inserted in cake portion comes out with moist crumbs.  Serve warm.  12 servings
