Yes it is as rich as it looks!! It is amazingly good…make sure you have a tall glass of milk with it too. 😉 I love crockpot cakes because they turn out so ooey gooey and moist and I don’t have to heat up my house to bake them (plus no frosting is needed since it’s sweet enough). You just need 4 ingredients to make this and you can use just about any pie filling, though I think cherry is best. This recipe was inspired by a strawberry version I saw on Crockpot Recipe Exchange, I just tweaked it to suit us better and it came out fantastic. Here’s the recipe.

The great thing about dump cakes as I call them is you can dump everything in your crockpot about the time your dinner is ready and by the time you’re done eating, cleaning up, and have room for dinner your crockpot dessert is done. If you don’t have a larger crockpot like this one here is my favorite one you can grab too (affiliate link).

Save Recipe


  • 1 can cherry pie filling (or other flavor)
  • 1 bag chocolate chips
  • 1 box chocolate cake mix
  • 1 stick butter, melted


  1. Cover bottom of crockpot with pie filling, add the bag of cake mix on top of that evenly. Pour the melted butter on top of the cake mix, then evenly spread the bag of chocolate chips on the very top. Cover the top of the crockpot with a paper towel and then place lid on top of that. Turn on low for 2 - 3 hours, 2.5 is usually perfect. Do not overcook! You want it to be ooey.
