Crockpot Chocolate Lava Cake Ingredients
This could be one of the easiest crockpot dessert recipes to throw together. All you need is a box of chocolate cake mix, box of chcolate pudding mix, the ingredients to prepare them according to the package, and some chocolate chips.
What kind of Crockpot is Best?
I have made this recipe in my large casserole crockpot, and in my 6 quart crockpot. While this would work in any crockpot I would say the larger the better for this cake. That way there is room for it to bake and for the pudding to spread evenly throughout!
Gluten Free Crockpot Chocolate Lava Cake
Yes, you can totally make this gluten-free! Just use a gluten free chocolate cake mix, or whip up your own. As always make sure your other ingredients are gluten free too!
Dairy Free Crockpot Chocolate Lava Cake
You can even make amazing dessert dairy free with just a few substitutions. First of all check and make sure you are using a dairy free cake mix. Double check your pudding mix to make sure it is dairy free (most actually are). Use dairy free milk to make the pudding but use 1/2 of the called for amount. So only 1 cup instead of 2 cups. Finally use a dairy free chocolate chip; Enjoy Life makes a tasty one!
