Hot Fudge Peanut Butter Pudding Cake

This is one of my husband’s all-time favorite desserts. I don’t make it a lot (probably because the clean-up of the crock pot is such a chore), but it’s always well received when I do. In fact, if it’s been too long since I’ve made it, the family starts requesting it.

If you’ve never made a dessert in the crock pot before, this may look a little off to you at first. But trust me, the taste more than makes up for the lack of visual appeal. It’s rich, chocolaty and creamy. Add a scoop of ice cream on top and it’s all good!
