  • 1 500g  (18oz) packet German chocolate cake mix
  • 1 120g  (4oz) packet chocolate instant pudding mix
  • 1 120g (4oz) package chocolate cook-and-serve pudding mix
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • cup  sour cream
  • ⅓  cup  melted butter
  • teaspoon  vanilla extract
  • 3 ¼  cups  milk, divided
  • ½  cup  chopped pecans
  • 1 ½  cups  miniature marshmallows
  • cup  semisweet chocolate morsels
  • Nonstick cooking spray


  1. Blend cake mix, instant pudding mix, eggs, sour cream, melted butter, vanilla extract, and 1¼ cups of the milk with an electric mixer for two minutes. Scrape batter off sides of bowl as needed.
  2. Spray slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray. Pour batter into slow cooker.
  3. Scald remaining 2 cups of milk in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Do not boil. Remove from heat.
