Remember the old Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup commercial? “You got your peanut butter on my chocolate!” "Hey, you got your chocolate in my peanut butter!” They got over their accidental collision and discovered one of the best flavor combinations.

Peanut butter and chocolate go together like...pretzels and beer or cookies and milk. Chocolate, peanut buttery, soft and fudgy, this crockpot cake is a keeper! It's dairy-free and completely vegan, too. Eat it warm and fresh out of the crock pot, topped with vegan ice cream.
