How to make Crockpot peanut butter lava cake:

This is a very easy to make recipe. Everything gets put into the slow cooker and it does all the hard work for us!

Spray slow cooker insert with cooking oil. In a large mixing bowl, add cake mix, eggs, avocado oil and 1 ¼ cups of milk. Pour into slow cooker. 

In a second bowl, add pudding mix and 2 cups of milk and beat for 3-4 minutes. Pour over cake mix, but do NOT mix in! Pudding will be thick and won’t pour evenly, so that’s ok.

Sprinkle peanut butter chips on top of the pudding layer.

Secure lid on slow cooker and cook on low for 2-3 hours, or until cake is set and the pudding is bubbling.

This recipe will serve 8 or maybe a little more depending on the amount for each serving.
