My hubby decided he wanted to make this for our Super Bowl Feast. It was delicious. There were two definite plusses for me: 1-hubby made it, not me; 2- it was made in the crock pot! How cool is that!?! Who knew you could bake in a crock pot, certainly not me. Doesn’t it look yummy? It was! All that pudding goodness in the middle!
The recipe is from Crock-Pot Recipe Collection.
1 pkg (6 serving size) instant chocolate pudding and pie filling mix
3 cups milk
1 package (about 18 oz) chocolate fudge cake mix, plus ingredients to prepare mix
Crushed peppermint candies (optional)
Whipped topping or ice cream (optional – but ice cream is recommended by me anyway)
1-Coat 4 1/2 quart Crock-Pot slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray. Place pudding mix in Crock-Pot slow cooker. Whisk in milk.
2-Prepare cake mix according to package directions. Carefully pour cake mix into Crock-Pot slow cooker. Do not stir. Cover; cook on High 1 to 1 1/2 hours our until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean (note: don’t stick it all the way down or you will just get pudding).
3-Spoon into cup or onto plate; serve warm with crushed peppermint candies and whipped topping or ice cream if desired. Tip: let cool at least 5 minutes before removing from Crock-Pot slow cooker.
(just fyi I don’t have a Crock-Pot brand slow cooker, I just copied the recipe verbatim, so take it for what it’s worth)
