What size crock pot recommended?

Both of my kids approved. I said, “So is this one I can cook again?” and they said, “Yes.”

My sister made this for our family this weekend and we all loved it. It isn’t firm like a cake, it is more like a gooey souffle-type dessert. I think it definitely needed the ice cream – would have been too chocolatey without it. We will make it again for sure (and it was really easy to make according to my sis)

Sorry but this recipe is gross! I had to throw out the whole batch. It was way too gooey and lacked flavor. I even tried to cook it longer to see if that would help and it didn’t. Sorry but this recipe is a HUGE bust!

Had the hot fudge cake this past weekend. So delicious! The warm/ cold combo between the cake and ice cream makes it all come together. Yummy!

I have never made a dessert in my crockpot. This cake looks super good, and I wouldn’t have to fuss with it. Sounds perfect.

This recipe was delicious! Tried it out for my first time tonight for a dinner gathering with friends, so I was really hoping it’d be a success- and it was! Thanks for posting it!

This looks and sounds delicious, but with carbs and sugar combined… which is what you do with diabetes, it comes out to 78 and I can only have 90 combined carbs and sugar a day lol. Dayyyyymmm wish I could have some :'( but it would take a couple of days of 0 carbs and water, and more water to bring my blood sugar back down to normal (for me).

Could you use a standard chocolate cake mix?

In the photo there appears to be some sort of icing or thick glaze on the cake. Does this form “automatically” or was it frosted for the photo? I only eat cake so I can have the frosting! 🙂 Not really, but I do love icing on a cake.

I too followed the recipe and ended up with a very gooey mess, almost salty and bitter. Not sure what I could have done different after looking over the recipe twice. I was sad it smelled sooo good!

A big flop. Tasted bland and no one liked it. It will be going in the garbage. It’s a shame because we were looking forward to it and now I wasted time and money.

I love the fact that you put the nutritional value to the recipes. I would like to know what program you used to do that with.

I just made this a it turned out perfect. 2 hours in the large crockpot. I couldn’t be happier. For those that said it was salty, bland or gross, I am pretty sure you did something incorrectly.

This was delicious! It reminds me of Chili’s molten lava cake with that luscious chocolate sauce!! We had it with a side of vanilla bean ice cream!! Fabulous! Thanks for sharing (:

It seems that there is way too much water in the recipe, it came out as cake in a sea of brown water. Is it really 1 3/4 cup water, not just 3/4 cup?

Can the liner be used in place of greasing the slow cooker?

Mine didn’t come out well either. This is the first Get Crocked recipe that was a complete fail for me. After crocking for the 3 hours (and my crock pot usually cooks hot and I need less time than recipes call for) it was still under chocolate water. After tasting the “water” we decided to try the “cake ” part but the consistency wasn’t cake at all. It was like squishy fudge or thick, gelatinous chocolate flan. It was so weird. The flavor was good but we just couldn’t get past the strange, slimy texture.

There are no directions on the crock pot heat setting. I am assuming you want it on high. Also should you “preheat” the crock pot?

Nathan Rodriguez

The first time I made it I followed the directions exactly ‘3 T. cocoa, baking powder and salt.’ I read this as Tablespoon and it also helps to remember to turn the crock pot on. Lol.

Made this last night and it was really good! Some people having problems, here’s what I think are the steps that make this a success. I used a large, oval crock pot and the boiling water step, make sure the water is BOILING when you pour it on top. Also, my slow cooker has vents in the lid. If yours doesn’t, tilt the lid while it cooks.
