Slow Cooker Chocolate Cake

My Mom’s Slow Cooker Chocolate Cake is an easy recipe that’s a great way to introduce toddlers to cooking. I measured out all the ingredients and then had my daughter do all the mixing. Serve slow cooker chicken tacos with this cake for dessert, and voila: an easy, kid-friendly menu. Note: You will need a medium sized 3.5 qt slow cooker for this recipe. If you use a large 7 qt slow cooker, the edges tend to burn.
