  • 1 box (16.25 oz.) chocolate cake mix
  • 2 cans Kool-Aid® Sparklers Cherry Flavored Sparkling Drink
  • 1⁄2 cup melted butter
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 box instant chocolate pudding and pie filling mix
  • 1 can (21 oz.) cherry pie filling
  • 1 cup Walnuts Halves & Pieces, chopped
  • 1 bag (10 oz.) dark chocolate chips
  • Ice cream, optional for serving
  • Hot fudge topping, optional for serving


  • Grease a crockpot with cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix together cake mix, 1 can cherry flavored drink, melted butter and eggs. Set aside.
  • In another large bowl, mix together pudding mix and 1 can cherry flavored drink. Set aside.
  • Pour the cherry pie filling into the prepared crockpot and spread with a spatula to evenly cover the bottom of the crockpot. Top filling with chopped walnuts. Pour in cake batter and spread evenly over walnuts.
  • Use a cookie scoop to evenly scoop the pudding mixture on top of the cake batter. Sprinkle dark chocolate chips evenly over the pudding mixture.
  • Place a thin dish towel over your crockpot, before placing the lid on. This collects the condensation created during the cooking process. Cover and cook on HIGH for 2-3 hours, or until cake is cooked to your liking.
