Crock Pot Rocky Road Cake - Spring Pinterest Challenge Time

It's Pinterest Challenge Time!! If you remember back almost a year ago when I shared the Cinnamon Roll Waffles I explained the pinterest challenge that Young House Love and Bower Power Blog do several times a year. It's not really affiliated with pinterest, its just a way for them to share one thing they actually have pinned and done and allows their readers to share their creations too.  This time I decided to make Rocky Road Cake in the crock pot. O.M.G! It's amazing!!

1 (18.25-oz.) package devil's food cake mix 
1 (3.9-oz.) package vanilla instant pudding mix
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup sour cream
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 1/4 cups milk, divided
1 (3.4-oz.) package chocolate instant pudding mix 
1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 cup semisweet chocolate morsels

Beat cake mix, vanilla pudding mix, eggs, sour cream, butter, vanilla extract and 1 1/4 cup milk together with electric mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes. Pour into lightly greased crock pot

Mix chocolate pudding mix and 2 cups milk together. Pour on top of mix in the crock pot. Cover and cook on low for 3 1/2 hours.

 Pour marshmallows and chocolate chips on top. Cover and serve once they're melted.


It was delicious! We actually left the house while it was cooking and we ended up being gone for longer than planned so my cake cooked for 5 hours on low and it still came out fine. Just like with any recipe it just depends on your crock pot and how quickly it cooks stuff. 


  1. About how many servings would you say this recipe feeds?

    1. It was a lot. I have a 6 quart crock pot and it was pretty full. The cake itself is also pretty filling so you don't need to eat much. Thanks for stopping by!
