Ingredients

  • 1 box dark chocolate cake mix
  • 1 box (4-serving size) chocolate instant pudding and pie filling mix
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 1/4 cups milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 bag (8 oz) toffee bits
  • 1 box (4-serving size) butterscotch instant pudding and pie filling mix
  • 1 container (8 oz) frozen whipped topping, thawed

Steps

  • 1
    Spray 5-quart oval slow cooker with cooking spray. In large bowl, beat cake mix, chocolate pudding mix, sour cream, butter, vanilla, 1 1/4 cups of the milk and the eggs with electric mixer on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping sides of bowl as needed. Stir in 1 cup of the toffee bits. Pour batter into slow cooker.
  • 2
    In 2-quart saucepan, heat remaining 2 cups milk over medium heat 3 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until hot and bubbly. Remove from heat. Sprinkle butterscotch pudding mix over batter in slow cooker. Slowly pour hot milk over pudding.
  • 3
    Cover; cook on Low heat setting 4 hours 30 minutes or until edge of cake is set at least 2 inches from edge of slow cooker but center still jiggles slightly when moved. Turn off slow cooker. Let stand 15 minutes. Garnish with whipped topping and remaining toffee bits.

  • Allowing the cake to stand 15 minutes after cooking gives it time to cool and set up more so it serves well.
  • Serve bowls of cake with vanilla ice cream, if desired.
  • We recommend using milk with a milkfat percentage of 1% or higher for this recipe to give it as rich of a flavor as possible. This is dessert, after all—let’s go all in!
