Crockpot Molten Lava Cake

Rich gooey chocolate who can resist?  Lava cake an all time favorite at any restaurant made here in a crock pot.......soooo easy.  Throwing something in a crock pot gives you so much time to spend on the rest of the meal or other things.  This is so simple plus the ingredients are easy to keep on hand. Brew a pot of coffee or tea you are good to go.  There are a number of variations of this on Pinterest this was rich enough for me but some recipes added peanut butter or used brown sugar, it definitely needs that scoop of vanilla ice cream though.  I have 2 crockpots the size is no longer on them but I think the larger one is about 5-6 qts. and the smaller about 3 qts for this I used the smaller one.  If you use a larger one just watch the cooking time it may cook faster.
Crockpot Molten Lava Cake
1 c sugar
1 c flour
3 T unsweetened cocoa
2t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/2 c milk
2 T melted butter
1/2 t vanilla
1 c chocolate chips
1 3/4 c hot water
3 T unsweetened cocoa
3/4 c sugar

Butter or spray inside of crockpot.
Mix first 5 ingredients through salt.
Mix milk, butter & vanilla.
Combine the dry and wet ingredients.
Pour into prepared crockpot.
Top with chocolate chips.
Mix hot, water cocoa & 3/4 c sugar until sugar is dissolved.
Pour into crock pot on top of choc chips.
Cover cook on high for 2 hours, then turn
to low and cook 2 more hours.
To serve scoop out warm & with vanilla ice cream.

I thought this was best the same day, leftovers could be refrigerated 
and warmed in the microwave you but most of the liquid chocolate gets
absorbed but still moist and tasty.  

Scoop warm from crockpot.

It needs that scoop of ice cream!
