12 (or 1 if it’s been a rough week)

Preparation time:

5 min.


1 dark chocolate cake mix

1 pint sour cream

1 package instant chocolate pudding

1 bag chocolate chips (Ghiradelli double chocolate are best!)

¾ cup oil

4 eggs

1 cup water


Spray crockpot with non-stick spray. Mix all ingredients together, pour into crockpot. Cook on low temp for 5-8 hours – don’t be tempted to overcook or turn it to high heat – this one needs to be slightly soft! Will jiggle slightly in the center just before it’s done…….

Serve in bowls with vanilla ice cream and hot fudge………..terrific!!


Easy as they come and absolutely wonderful!! I’ve also tried with yellow cake mix and butterscotch pudding/chips – also very good!
