Triple Chocolate Mess (Cooked in Crockpot)
- 1 package chocolate cake mix
- 1 pint sour cream
- 1 package instant chocolate pudding (some put 4-oz, others the larger size)
- 1 6-oz. bag chocolate chips (I used 12-oz.bag)
- 4 EGGS
- 3/4 cup oil
- 1 cup water
Spray crockpot with non-stick spray. Mix all ingredients. Pour into crockpot. Cook on Low for 6-8 hours. If you are going to let it stay in the pot after cooking, put a paper towel under the lid so moisture that collects on lid will not fall on cake. Serve in a bowl with ice cream or whipped topping. Refrigerate after cooking. Good warm or cold. As one lady said, "Forget the bowl! Put some potholders between your knees and get a long spoon!"
Most agree that 6 hours on low is the best cooking time, however, ALL crockpots are different - some hotter than others. Some people have had theirs to scorch on the bottom in the hotter pots. The first time I cooked it, after 6 hours the outside edges looked done and the middle was soggy!
