Crockpot Hot Fudge Peanut Butter Chip Brownie Cake

Making cake in the crockpot is one of my favorite things to do. This Crockpot Hot Fudge Peanut Butter Chip Brownie Cake  is quite the mouth full and delivers in taste and is perfect for Slow Cooker Sunday!slow cooker Sunday - todays creative blog

It’s a bit like a lava cake, but I just can’t add another word and call it Crockpot Hot Fudge PB Chip Brownie Lava Cake. Someone might bite their lip just trying to say it and then they may not be able to enjoy it’s goodness.

Although this would be really good with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, I had planned on making whipped cream. Then I realized that I was out of my favorite Trader Joe’s Shelf Stable Whipping Cream
and we would have to eat it plain. Oh the things I do for this blog. It was a struggle, but I managed to eat just a bit.  My husband actually ate the dessert cup photographed here.

Crockpot cakes only take about 2 hours to cook, so you don’t want to put it in and then head off for a full day of work.

I have always had good luck with crockpot desserts and cakes. The Peanut Butter Cup Cake is one of my favorites! And the crockpot peach pie wasn’t bad either.

The sides of the cake will pull away from the crockpot insert as it cooks, but the middle stays pretty gooey.  I used my ice cream scoop to scoop it up, making sure to get some of the “lava sauce” to drizzle along the top.

Since this cake uses a brownie mix, it’s even easier. I love a non fussy dessert.
