Molten Mocha Cake

When I first made my decadent slow-cooker chocolate cake, my husband's and daughter's expressions said it all. She says it's one of her favorites. Later, I brought one of these to our next-door neighbors. Their teenage son, who answered the door, ate the whole thing without telling anyone else about it! —Aimee Fortney, Fairview, Tennessee

      Who has a 1 1/2 qt slow cooker? Most recipes call for a 4-6 qt. Disappointed. I really wanted to try this.

      We really liked this recipe. I made the mistake of leaving the leftover in the crock and put in the refrigerator. The next day I couldn't get it out of the crock without a lot of work. Oops! Will definite make it again and wll put the leftovers in a proper storage container.

      This cake was delicious. We topped ours with whipped cream. But it's so rich and moist it doesn't require any topping. I didn't think the mocha taste was overpowering, which was perfect for my kids.

      Love this recipe. I made it exactly as the recipe calls except I omitted the coffee. I make it when I need something fast, easy and chocolate. My family loves it.
