A chocolate dessert to DIE for!

I made this yesterday, and we ate it warm with whipped topping on top. I just had the leftovers, cold from the 'fridge. Either way, this is THE MOST AMAZING chocolate cake-like dessert EVER! AND I MADE IT IN THE CROCKPOT!

The recipe is from the little cookbook/owner's manual that came with the trio crockpot that Rhett got me for an early birthday present.
I also found the recipe at www. under desserts. I have altered it a little, so I'm going to tell you how I made it. I thought about taking pictures as I made it, but with Blogger being so uppity of late, I didn't think it would ever get posted. Now I regret it. Rest assured, I will make it again and show pictures. But do not wait until I do. Make. This. Soon.

Triple Chocolate Surprise
1 package chocolate cake mix (I used Betty Crocker Chocolate Fudge)
6 oz sour cream (recipe called for 8 oz; I had an 8 oz package from which a tablespoon or so was gone)
1 package instant chocolate pudding mix (I used Kroger brand, the small size)
Between 1/2 cup and 3/4 cup oil (recipe calls for 3/4 c; I like to reduce oil whenever possible so mine was closer to 1/2 c)
1 large egg, 1 large egg white, 2/3 cup egg beater-type egg (recipe calls for 4 eggs; I like to reduce the egg yolks because my cholesterol is borderline, and Rhett drinks the egg-beater stuff for we always have that on hand - I use that stuff as a substitute for eggs in baking)
1 cup water
1 cup chocolate chips

1. Mix everything together in a bowl. I folded in the chocolate chips after mixing everything else together.
2. Spray stoneware/crock with Pam or similar spray.
3. Pour mix in crock.
4. Cover and cook for 3-4 hours on low setting. (The recipe says you can cook on high for 3-4 hours. I cooked mine for the first hour and a half on high, and it burnt a crust on the outside. Not good. It was done in that short amount of time, though, so I figure 3-4 hours on low ought to do it.)


  1. Sounds good! I will forward it to Lloyd with a request to make it! :-)

    Hey, I checked out of the computer for a few days and come back to find you have like six posts! Woo hoo!!!

  2. Lloyd does the cooking?! Jealous!
