Gooey Peanut Butter Chocolate Crockpot Cake

I love to use my crock pot for cooking. I can put in my ingredients and walk away to continue my work in other project and places. I know we are all trying to reduce our sugar consumption but once in a when a special occasions happens and we want to treat ourselves and our families. Making this cake was one of those rare times.
