Mud Cake

So the name of this cake isn't so appealing but get out your crock pot and get ready to indulge.  This cake is the quick and painless version of molten lava cake.  No worrying about overcooking or undercooking and you pretty much dump everything into the crockpot and enjoy!

I use one bowl for the cake and then use it again for the filling without worrying about washing it out in between since everything is going in the pot at the same time.  You can use regular or dark cocoa and any type of chocolate chips depending on the flavor you are going for.  Try it already!!
