"I made this for my family on Valentine's Day and they were thrilled. We served it with vanilla ice cream. I will definitely make it again! I used the crockpot liner and am glad I did. No mess to clean up. I couldn't find devil's food cake s used German chocolate. Delicious. Only served the 4 of us. We had huge helpings. If I had company, I would try to double it."

"This turned out perfect! Took like 3 minutes to put together, than 3 hours in the crock pot. A really great flavor, I will definitely make this again when I have people over, it does make a lot. I don't like cakes with frosting or that are too sweet, so this was just my cup of tea. Now I'm wondering if you can use other flavors of cake mix and pudding..........."
