Chocolate Concoction

     Slow-cooker cook books often have recipes that are a bit sketchy health-wise. Often they are packed with sodium to the point of causing a cardiac event at the dinner table. Every now and then you come across a slow-cooker cook book that is full of hilariously unhealthy recipes. Gooseberry Patch Super Fast Slow Cooking is one of those books. Recipe after recipe is absolutely packed with salt and sugar. I love this book. Most of the meals will cause me to gain 4-7 pounds in water from a single meal. While this recipe is not packed with sodium, it is a fat and sugar bomb. If you're counting calories, you'll need a scientific calculator for this one. It is phenomenally rich; we can only eat about three forkfuls before we need a drink of water to move it along. As always, any notes and changes are in blue.

via Gooseberry Patch Super Fast Slow Cooking
  • 1 box 18.25 ounce devil's food cake mix
  • 16 ounce container sour cream (we tried to mitigate the damage of this dessert by using low fat sour cream)
  • 3.9 ounce package instant chocolate pudding mix (more damage control here by using sugar-free pudding mix)
  • 1-1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup water
  • Optional: French vanilla ice cream (if you're having ice cream with this, you might as well just go ahead and stab yourself in the pancreas)
  1. Beat all ingredients (except ice cream, if using) until smooth.
  2. Pour into a slow cooker that has been sprayed with non-stick vegetable spray.
  3. Cover and cook on LOW for 6-8 hours
  4. Serve with ice cream if you really hate yourself.
Good times!
