When it comes to desserts, there may be no better combination than peanut butter and chocolate. And while you could simply unwrap a handful of Reese’s peanut butter cups, toss them into your mouth and call it a day, why would you when you can easily turn those candies into a delicious and gooey cake instead? Best of all, you can make a peanut butter and chocolate cake in your slow cooker, saving you time and energy.

For a super easy and quick dessert, this chocolate peanut butter cake recipe from Spicy Southern Kitchen only takes 15 minutes of prep time and less than 2 hours to bake.

Spicy Southern Kitchen

No chocolate cake mix on hand? You may want to consider the original Betty Crocker recipe that Spicy Southern Kitchen adapted. The biggest difference between the two recipes is that this one uses chocolate syrup and a yellow cake mix instead of chocolate, but you could probably use just about any type of cake mix for this recipe to work.

Some Tips For Making A Slow-Cooker Cake

Never made a cake in a crock-pot before? Here are a few helpful tips:

  • For easy cleanup and to better lift the cake out of the cookware, use a slow cooker liner.
  • Cakes made in older crock-pots take longer to bake, so you may want to increase the cook time if your slow cooker is more than 10 years old. But use a toothpick to determine when your cake is ready!
