I’m at a loss for words on how to preface this recipe.
It’s not even close to healthy (unlike these chocolate peanut butter brownies). BUT, it’s good for the soul; and I’m all about those soulful indulgent once-in-a-time recipes. I have full on heart-eye emojis over here just thinking back on this slow cooker chocolate lava cake. It was seriously amazing; and knew, even though I try to center this blog around living healthy, that I had to share it with you all. Plus, a little lava cake is perfect for days that you save your treats for; aka: this years Super Bowl.
I made this cake for a co-workers birthday. I’m huge on bringing crock pot recipes because I can prep the ingredients beforehand, but allow it to cook during the morning so that it’s nice and fresh when it comes time to eat!
If you’re going to a Super Bowl party this year and want the cake to be hot and ready when the afternoon rolls around, you can do what I did and bring it all with you. I just packed the milk in a separate Tupperware, pre-made the cake mix + brought that along, and then I have these AMAZINGLY handy crock-pot liners, so clean up in a breeze. (Literally… just throw it away and you’re good to go!)
