Crock Pot Rocky Road Chocolate Cake

Did you know that you could bake a cake in a crock pot? This Slow Cooker Rocky Road Cake is an easy dessert and is loved by everyone who tried it, especially served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

I have become in love with my crock pot over the last couple of months. I love being able to combine ingredients in the morning and by dinner time all I have to do is scoop and serve. After I pick up the boys from school I’m not always a fan of hanging out in the kitchen for an hour prepping dinner. It’s so nice to just be able to take things easy in the moments before my husband gets home instead of rushing to get something cooked.

I have found a number of crock pot dinner recipes that we love and recently made our first dessert in the crock pot. This easy dessert recipe doesn’t take a lot of work to prepare, and unlike a typical cake you don’t have to spend time frosting it.  This is one of the easiest cakes I have ever made, and can be made and served in just a few hours.  If you have friends coming over for dinner, put all of the ingredients in the crockpot when you start dinner and by the time you and your guests are ready for dessert the cake will be done. The chocolate cake in a crock pot was a huge hit and I will definitely be making it again.
