So....as a little "thank you"....I'm gonna share 2 recipes today....that are easy as pie (hint-hint)....and are made in the crock pot!!!

Rocky Road Cake

Ingredients

  • 1  (18.25-oz.) package German chocolate cake mix
  • 1  (3.9-oz.) package chocolate instant pudding mix
  • 3  large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1  cup  sour cream
  • 1/3  cup  butter, melted
  • 1  teaspoon  vanilla extract
  • 3 1/4  cups  milk, divided
  • 1  (3.4-oz.) package chocolate cook-and-serve pudding mix
  • 1/2  cup  chopped pecans
  • 1 1/2  cups  miniature marshmallows
  • 1  cup  semisweet chocolate morsels
  • Vanilla ice cream (optional)

Preparation

1. Beat cake mix, next 5 ingredients, and 1 1/4 cups milk at medium speed with an electric mixer 2 minutes, stopping to scrape down sides as needed. Pour batter into a lightly greased 4-qt. slow cooker.
2. Cook remaining 2 cups milk in a heavy non-aluminum saucepan over medium heat, stirring often, 3 to 5 minutes or just until bubbles appear (do not boil); remove from heat.
3. Sprinkle cook-and-serve pudding mix over batter. Slowly pour hot milk over pudding. Cover and cook on LOW 3 1/2 hours.
4. Meanwhile, heat pecans in a small nonstick skillet over medium-low heat, stirring often, 3 to 5 minutes or until lightly toasted and fragrant.
5. Turn off slow cooker. Sprinkle cake with pecans, marshmallows, and chocolate morsels. Let stand 15 minutes or until marshmallows are slightly melted. Spoon into dessert dishes, and serve with ice cream, if desired.
