This is to die for....or at least exceptionally good. I was surprised that you can't taste the peanut butter all that much, just a hint. I wonder what it would taste like with almond butter or something instead....just an idea.
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 Tbs unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup sugar
1.5 tsp baking powder
pinch o' salt
1/2 cup whole milk or chocolate milk
2 Tbs canola, peanut or walnut oil
1 Tbs vanilla extract
1/2 cup Peanut Butter(smooth/chunky, natural/hydrogenated...however you roll...chunky gives you...well chunks)
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
3 Tbs. unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 cup sugar
1.5 cup boiling water
1. Coat the slow cooker with butter or cooking spray
2.In a bowl mix the dry ingredients together, then stir in milk, oil and vanilla. Once that is smooth and well mixed, add in the peanut butter, and stir in the chocolate chips. Spread evenly in the cooker.
3. Make the topping by mixing the cocoa powder and sugar then poor boiling water over it and whisk until smooth. Gently poor over the cake batter. Cover and turn the crock pot on HIGH for 2-2.25 hrs
4. Turn off slow cooker and let stand for at least 30 min.
5. eat...I hear this ice cream thing tastes good with it too.
A Quick hint, use a round cooker, oval I hear messes it up, but I could be totally wrong. I have been known to be wrong very often. Though, it isn't like your kids need more sugar on Halloween.
