Easy Crock Pot Dessert Idea

We invited friends over for dinner and this Easy Crock Pot Chocolate Peanut Butter Mess Cake was the perfect dessert!  It only took 15 minutes to mix up and then it cooked and stayed moist in the slow cooker until we were ready for dessert.  I love being able to mix up the cake, toss in the crockpot and have several hours to clean up and prepare the main dish.

My husband’s aunt shared this recipe with me.  She uses 3/4 cup of chocolate chips, but I substituted those for 1 1/2 cups of peanut butter chips because that’s what I found in the cupboard.  As a big fan of both chocolate and peanut butter, I think either option would be excellent!

I used my 5-quart slow cooker and the recipe fit well.  We had plenty of cake leftover which is always a good thing!

Here are two other easy cake recipes using a box mix that we enjoy: Pumpkin Pie Cake and Gooey Butter Cake.

We hope you enjoy this easy chocolate and peanut butter mess cake in the slow cooker recipe as much as we did!
