Crockpot Lava Cake

This crockpot lava cake is one of my most popular crockpot dessert recipes ever and my family absolutely loves it!  I love it because it's so easy, smells delicious and leaves a ton of room in the oven for my dinner meal.


  • 1 Box Pillsbury Chocolate Cake prepared
  • 1 Container Fudge Frosting
  • 1 cup semi sweet Chocolate Chips


  • Spray the inside of the crock pot with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Pour the prepared cake mix into the crockpot, following up with dollops of frosting all of the top of the prepared cake mix.
  • Sprinkle the cake mix and frosting mixture with chocolate chips.
  • Place a paper towel large enough to cover the entire top of the crockpot over the crockpot and place the slow cooker lid over the paper towel (and crockpot).
  • Bake on high for 1-2 hours.
  • At one hour, use a toothpick in the middle of the cake to determine the amount of cooking time left. When the toothpick comes out mostly clean from the middle of the cake, you can turn the crockpot off.
  • Let the cake sit for 10 minutes or so, and serve - enjoy!
