On Thursday's we eat out with friends so no slow cooker cooking for the 5th. Then on Friday, we had leftover crock pot Taco Soup. Andru had another friend over Friday evening and he did eat a bowl but then the boys filled up on frozen pizza.
Saturday evening we were invited to some friends house for dinner. I took dessert. I made "Unbelievably Easy Slow Cooker Black Forest Cake
from allrecipes.com. You can find it HERE.
1/2 cup butter
1 (8oz) can crushed pineapple, drained and juice reserved
1 (21oz) can cherry pie filling
1package chocolate cake mix
1. Melt the butter in a small saucepan, and mix with reserved juice from the can of pineapple. Set the mixture aside.
2. Spread the crushed pineapple in a layer on the bottom of a slow cooker. Spoon the cherry pie filling in an even layer on top of the pineapple, and empty the dry cake mix into the slow cooker on top of the cherry filling. Stir the butter and pineapple juice mixture, and pour it over the dry cake mix.
3. Set the slow cooker to low, and cook for 3 hours. Spoon the dessert into bowls and let cool about 5 minutes to cool the hot pie filling before eating.
I love All Recipes.com and get many of my recipes from there. - not just the crock pot recipes but all types of recipes.
There were six of us and from 1 to 5, the cake got three 5's, one 10, a 4 and I gave it a two because I'm not a real chocolate fan and this is BIG on chocolate!
