Crock Pot Chocolate Spoon Cake


  • 1 box chocolate cake mix
  • 1 4 oz box instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Spray your crock pot with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine first six ingredients.
  3. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  4. Pour batter into prepared slow cooker.
  5. Cover and cook on low for about 4-6 hours.

Note: Because all crock pots cook differently, we recommend checking it at the 4-hour mark.
Once your chocolatey creation is finished, spoon some into a bowl and enjoy it warm, topped off with a scoop of your favorite ice cream or a squirt of whipped cream. Enjoy!
