If you are like me, Not the Perfect Cook, but you love a perfectly delicious chocolate dessert, look no further!

Molten Mocha Chocolate Cake in a Crock Pot

I envision Heaven smelling like gardenias and jasmine on one side — and chocolate on the other. Brownies are my favorite dessert. Until I came up with this recipe, that is. I make my Molten mocha chocolate lava cake in a crock pot because I get the best of both worlds. A brownie like consistency on the outside, oozing chocolate on the inside.

The most difficult aspect of this recipe is the 2 hours it takes in the crock pot. After 2 hours of smelling this heavenly mixture, get ready to taste pure fabulousness! So if you are looking for a dessert that is delicious, easy and will render you speechless, look no further.
