Crock Pot Chocolate Butterscotch Cake

When my sister-in-law first told me about this recipe, I couldn’t wait to try it out.  Well, I finally got around to it last night, and it was absolutely…insanely…incredible.  I cooked dinner for some family and friends, and dessert was a HUGE hit.  After I heard my husband scraping his bowl and mumbling about how good it was, I told him that it would be something I’ll make again in the future.  He responded, “Not too soon, I hope.  This thing is really dangerous.”  Normally when I bake a cake that has chips inside, the chips stay together, leaving the chunks of flavor throughout the cake.  Well, not with this recipe.  The butterscotch chips melted throughout the cake, adding a syrup like butterscotch flavor to the cake when you scoop it out.  I could smell the butterscotch in there with the chocolate.  All I can say is…wow.  Just, wow.  I’m a big sucker for warm brownies served with ice cream, but this is some major competition!
