Triple Chocolate Hot Mess Cake

I’m sorry to do this to you.

Only a couple weeks into January and I’m already tempting you to ditch your resolutions.

Don’t even try to resist this one.  Just add a few {hundred} extra minutes to your workout this week.  You won’t be sorry.  Your family will love you.  Birds will sing.  Flowers will bloom.  The sun will shine.  Rainbows will appear.

All because you made this.

  2. Erin says:

    Hmm good thing my resolution didn’t involve anything food related.

  3. Ahh I need this right now! I love anything warm and chocolatey. You did make one mistake though in calling this a “mess.” It’s not a mess; it’s a masterpiece!

  4. You better believe that anything called Triple Chocolate Hot Mess Cake caught my attention! This looks fabulous, and funny enough, the recipe I posted today on my blog is very similar – with the addition of Kahlua, and vanilla pudding instead of chocolate. Great minds think alike!

  5. Oooh, a slow cooker cake? It looks fabulous!

  6. Kris says:

    I resolve to make more things LIKE THIS! :)

  7. This looks fabulous! I was looking for something just like this for a cooking demo I have to do with no cooking facilities!

  8. Just reminds me I need to make something chocolatey Haven’t done that in awhile. I find when I have resolutions I am sure to break them.

    I’ve got this in the slow cooker now, and if the cake tastes half as good as the batter, it’s going to be FABULOUS!!! I couldn’t stop eating it!

  10. Deborah says:

    Good thing I didn’t make any resolutions about eating better! 2 servings for me, right?? :)

  11. Kaylon says:

    The cake turned out way better than I could have ever imagined! I’m going to have to hide it from myself! Ate some right out of the slow cooker last night, then again for breakfast this morning! This could get ugly! Lol

  12. It’s way too early to be tortured like this! :)

  13. A recipe title proudly touting the word ‘mess’ has to be delicious. And cooked in the slow cooker? I guess this makes you queen of the food bloggers. I bow to your greatness. Thanks for sharing!

  14. Oh yummmm…that’s my kind of dessert!
