Why you will absolutely love this recipe:

Substitutions

  • Cake Mix Flavors. Instead of Devil’s food cake mix, try chocolate or German chocolate cake mix. Both of these are great options that everyone will love.
  • More Chocolate. Add a handful of chocolate chips to the cake batter for a dessert that is even more decadent.
  • Candy. Try other candy. This is a great way to use leftover candy. Crush other candy bars on top such as Butterfinger, Reese’s Cups, snickers, hershey bars and more.

How to make Better than Sex Crockpot Cake:

Step 1. Get out a large mixing bowl and combine the cake mix ingredients along with the vanilla extract and ½ of the sweetened condensed milk. Make sure everything is mixed thoroughly.

Tips for the best cake

  • Generously poke holes. I like to use the end of a wooden spoon to poke holes. Make sure to do this all over the cake so the filling can soak in.
  • Check on the cake. Cooking times vary in slow cookers. Check on the cake after about 2 hours.
  • Chill the cake. Allow the cake to chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes before adding whipped cream and candy. Serve at room temperature.

Frequently Asked Questions

What style crock pot is best?

You can use a regular crock pot. However, if you prefer the cake look more like a regular cake, use a casserole style slow cooker.

How to store this cake?

Place leftovers in the fridge. Either place the lid on the crock pot insert or you can transfer the cake to an airtight container. Either option will keep the cake fresh.

  1. I have a question that might sound stupid. Do I mix the cake mix with ingredients on box then add the additional ingredients listed?

    1. Great question! Yes, prepare the cake mix based on the package instructions. Then pour the cake batter in the crock pot and top with the chocolate chips. I hope you enjoy this recipe!

    1. In haven’t tried it in a 4 quart crock pot yet. However, I think that it would work but will need to cook longer to get fully cooked through.

  2. What do the ingredients added to the stuff with the mix do? Does it add flavor or do something for the cooking process?

    1. Both! These ingredients are needed for the cooking process and the sweetened condensed milk adds to the flavor of the cake and makes it very moist!
