My boys and I are home from August 2012 Vacation #2. We are settling back into a routine just before school begins. Elijah will start Kindergarten this fall! I cannot think about that without shedding a few tears. The doctors warned us about potential "bad things" before he was born. They said he might not live to see daylight, and if he did that he may not see much of it. Five and a half years later, he is GOING TO KINDERGARTEN! I am a proud mama.
While I was out buying school supplies and shoes and shirts for my oldest boy today, this cake was cooking on my counter top. Two of the Paulas that I know are responsible for this delicious thing. Thank you, Paula, for the inspiration for this recipe, and thank you, Paula, for having a birthday this week! I love you both to pieces!
Generously spray the inside of a crock pot with cooking spray.
In a large mixing bowl, combine:
18.25-oz. package chocolate cake mix
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup water
Using a hand-held mixer, mix until just combined.
5.9-oz. package instant chocolate pudding mix
11.5-oz. bag milk chocolate chips
Gently combine the ingredients using a spoon.
Pour the mixture into the prepared crock pot.
Sprinkle 1 cup of chopped, pitted Bing cherries over the top.
Cook on high for 4 hours.
Scoop out with a large spoon and serve warm with ice cream and Bing cherries.
Have a delicious, er, great week!
