How to Make Rocky Road Crock Pot Cake


  • 1You Need:
    1 (18.25-oz.) package German chocolate cake mix*
    1 (3.9-oz.) package chocolate instant pudding mix*
    3 large eggs, lightly beaten
    1 cup sour cream
    1/3 cup butter, melted
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    3 1/4 cups milk, divided
    1 (3.4-oz.) package chocolate cook-and-serve pudding mix (i used vanilla)*

  • 2Directions:

    1. Beat cake mix, next 5 ingredients, and 1 1/4 cups milk at medium speed with an electric mixer (used my Kitchen Aid) 2 minutes, stopping to scrape down sides as needed. Pour batter into a lightly greased 4-qt. slow cooker.
    2. Cook remaining 2 cups milk in a heavy nonaluminum saucepan over medium heat, stirring often, 3 to 5 minutes or just until bubbles appear (do not boil); remove from heat.
    3. *Sprinkle cook-and-serve pudding mix over batter. Slowly pour hot milk over pudding. Cover and cook on LOW 3 1/2 hours.
    4. (optional if using pecans) Meanwhile, heat pecans in a small nonstick skillet over medium-low heat, stirring often, 3 to 5 minutes or until lightly toasted and fragrant.
    5. Turn off slow cooker. Sprinkle cake with pecans, marshmallows, and chocolate morsels. Let stand 15 minutes or until marshmallows are slightly melted.
