    This was like the chocolate lava cake you get from a restaurant. I admit, it didn't look completely cooked at the end of the 3 1/2 hrs., but it is just the oohey, gooey, warm, chocolate yumminess. Serve with vanilla ice cream. Our dinner party guests loved it. And, it couldn't be any easier.

    Made for Thanksgiving, and was a total hit! Everyone loved it so much, they wanted it for Christmas too! Absolutely none leftover! This is a chocoholic's dream dessert - very, very rich and delicious! Will experiment with other flavors of pudding and cake mix, as other reviewers suggested. Try this recipe!

    We made this cake for Easter, what a hit! It was delicious and it was very easy to make! Can't wait to make it again.

    This is so great for chocoholics. I am going to bring it to our next family gathering. Seriously Awesome, a must try. Just be sure to use the right size Crock Pot.

    SO easy to make! It turned out well, but a bit too moist for me. The girls at my game night raved! Vanilla ice cream is a must!

    I only have a 1-1/2 qt slow cooker and a 7 qt slow cooker. I do not want to buy a 4 qt cooker. Can I cook it in the 7 qt and just cut the cooking time? Does anyone know how long I should cook it on low in a 7 qt cooker? Thanks so much.

    This looked so amazing I had to try it. But looks can be decieving. It came out really mushy and just had a rubbery strange taste to it. I was surprised since usually anything I make from MYRecipes is always a hit.

    I wound up having to cook this twice as long as suggested, and had to turn my crock pot from LOW to HIGH. In the end, it wasn't worth the wait. A bit mushy and just not as flavourful as I had hoped.

    My family loves this cake. I have found that you can substitute different flavored cake mixes, puddings and toppings. One of their favorites is white cake mix with vanilla puddings and white chocolate chips for the topping.

    This recipe was wonderful and easy to make. It's a very rich and moist cake. I will definitely make it again. Next time I will probably serve vanilla ice cream with it. My daughter-in-law's birthday is coming up and she loves, loves, loves chocolate. I'm sure she will love this. Thanks for this great recipe.

    This dessert was a great hit. Very rich, I think I will leave off the cup of chocolate chips on the top. Vanilla icecream a must.

    I followed the recipe to a T and this was a gooey mess, not cake-like at all except around the edges. I had high hopes for this recipe, served it on game day, but I feel it was a waste of good ingredients.

    Chocolate cake? What a crock! This was a soupy mess. What a waste of time and ingredients.

    we like the recipe my crock pot was accidentally left on low all night and the sides were a little burnt. you have to cook about 6 - 8 hours on low, the cooking time suggested is not long enough, it would be liquidly for the cooking time suggested, i read in some of the other reviews and it just needed to be cooked for a longer period of time

    Made this for a superbowl party - it was delicious and easy for folks to "self serve". I would agree that ice cream is a must (even for a chocaholic like me), and be prepared that it is moist and crumbly.

    This cake was amazing! I brought it to a pot-luck at work and it was almost completely devoured by the time I left! I did make a few changes to the recipe though, like I cooked it in a 6-quart slow cooker and I cooked it on low for about 4-4.5 hours and then left it on warm during the pot-luck. However, I do have to warn that if you leave it on the warm setting, the cake starts to get over-cooked and a little rubbery at the bottom. When you get the cake at the perfect moment though, there is still a little bit of gooey-ness and some of the people at the pot-luck thought it tasted like caramel. It is delicious! Just don't make it if you're going to be the only one around, it'll end up disappearing way too fast! ;)

    Rich cake, but nice and fluffy! Got milk? You will want a glass with this!

    I made this last nite & can't stop eating it. I followed the directions to a T & it came out perfect. The cake part was done & topping was melted to perfection.
