The holidays are almost here and after this busy week, I intend to slow down a bit and live in the spirit of the season for the last week leading up to the holidays! One tradition that we have at my house is that I always, ALWAYS make this Holiday Slow Cooker Hot Fudge Sundae Cake on Christmas Day. It is so easy, because it bakes in the crock pot and is ready by lunch (or dinner, if you start it later).

This cake is warm and prepares its own rich hot fudge sauce under the cake while it bakes in the crock pot. So simple and sooo good!

We enjoy serving it with an ice cold glass of Coca-Cola, because chocolate and Coca-Cola are the best combo!

There is a Family Dollar right by my kids school, which makes it SO convenient if I need to pick up soda for a party or any other little items. It's nice to be able to swing in, get what you need and get back out in just MINUTES. Family Dollar will always be my go-to destination for quality products at a great value! Family Dollar had the adorable Coca-Cola 2L bottles with the Limited Edition Holiday Packaging, which is perfect for display at your holiday parties! They also have the holiday packaging in 6 pack glass bottles and aluminum bottles, too!

Now let's get started on the recipe:

My family finds comfort in serving this holiday dish up on adorable and festive plates and sitting around the tree while we open our stockings. It is also so good with a glass of cold Coca-Cola!
