Slow Cooker Chocolate Lava Cake

Slow Cooker Chocolate Lava Cake - a moist delicious cake oozing with hot chocolate sauce. This slow cooker recipe is not only easy, but probably the best thing you'll ever make in a slow cooker.

Hey Just Us Four Readers! I hope y’all are ready for another delicious recipe, because this one is a doozy! When I first read that you could make cake in a slow cooker, I really didn’t believe it…I’m not sure why, but probably because I am terrible at real baking, and this seemed like a major shortcut. I decided to try out a Slow Cooker Chocolate cake, and made it lava style – Slow Cooker Chocolate Lava Cake.

Three Ingredient Lemon Cake Batter Dip

Any time a recipe starts with the phrase “three ingredients”, it makes my heart go pitter patter. I love cooking but I don’t always have the time to make the recipes I want because of the lengthy list of ingredients. Having an arsenal of recipes that don’t require many ingredients, like three ingredient TWIX dip, carrot cake dip or this lemon cake batter dip, makes it easy for me to still make something even when I am short on time.

Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramelitas

So, you guys see me posting all the Paleo recipes and I’m sure you are sitting there thinking “well, she has gone full on health nut on us.” While I do try to stick to Paleo as much as possible, I admit that I still enjoy {love, crave, desire…} sweets on a regular basis. I just went from having them almost every day to saving them for more of a special treat. Now, these dark chocolate sea salt caramelitas…I could eat these every day. I’d need an entirely new wardrobe filled with elastic waist pants but they are so good that I would never tire of them.

Carrot Cake Dip

I can’t get over the fact that Easter is just over a week away! I am hosting Easter brunch at our house this year so I definitely need to get my butt in gear when it comes to planning a menu. At least I know I have a good resource for Easter recipes to turn to but I am still thinking of different dessert options. I don’t love the time it takes to bake so I am leaning towards something much easier like this three ingredient carrot cake dip.

Easy S’mores Donuts

I am so excited to share with you my newest donut flavor as a way to highlight delicious TruMoo’s Limited Edition Chocolate Marshmallow Milk. As always, even though this post may be sponsored, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

I love donuts. There, I totally admitted it. No matter how much I love eating clean and enjoying all the real foods of Whole30, I still have a soft spot for a delicious donut. Of course, I am always trying to think of new donuts to try {as if Red Velvet, Eggnog and Peppermint Mocha weren’t enough}. This time, I am taking aim at one of my favorite childhood desserts and making s’mores donuts.

German Chocolate Bars

Pop Quiz: Did you know that there isn’t really much German about what we know as German chocolate? When Maya moved with us from Germany, I talked to her at length about all the things we think are “German” but really aren’t and German chocolate stuff was top of the list. I guess it doesn’t matter where the name originated because it is so darn delicious. I rarely have the patience to make a German chocolate cake and typically go for these German chocolate bars instead.
