I've had both of these chocolate desserts and they are yummy. I'll take pics. next time I make them.

2 chocolate cookie crumb shells
60 pcs. caramels
1/2 c. evaporated milk
1 1/2 c. chopped pecans
2 - 8 oz. pkgs. cream cheese
1 c. sour cream
2 c. milk
1 (5.9 oz.) Chocolate Instant Pudding
1 c. Fudge Topping

1. Place caramels and evap. milk in a heavy sauce pan. Heat over med low heat, stirring constantly until smooth. Stir in 1 c. pecans. Pour into crusts.
2. In a blender, combine cream cheese, sour cream and milk. Process until smooth. Pour into large bowl. Add in pudding with whisk until well blended. Pour over caramel layer. Chill 15 min
3. Drizzle topping over top in decorative pattern. Sprinkle with remaining nuts. Cover and chill.

ROCKY ROAD CHOCOLATE CAKE (in a crockpot!) (Mom, I had a picture because I was planning on putting the recipe up sometime, so glad you did! The picture looks terrible, but the cake is soo delicious!)
This cake will look like it needs to cook just a little longer but by the time the topping is set, it's ready to serve. When it's done and still warm, top with marshmallows, pecans and chocolate chips before serving. Just keep the crockpot on warm after putting the marshmallows and stuff on and that speeds melting.
1 pkg. german chocolate cake mix
1 (3.9 oz.) pkg. chocolate instant pudding
3 large eggs
1 cup sour cream
1/3 c. melted butter
1 tsp. vanilla
3 1/4 c. milk - (divided)
1 (3.4 oz.) pdg. chocolate cook and serve pudding mix
1/2 c. chopped pecans
1 1/2 c. mini marshmallows
1 c. chocolate chips

Beat cake mix and next 5 ingredients and 1 1/4 c. milk at medium speed for 2 minutes, stopping to scrape down sides as needed. Pour batter into lightly greased (sprayed) 4 qt. slow cooker.

Microwave remaining 2 c. milk for about 2 minutes.

Sprinkle cook and serve pudding over cake batter - slowly pour hot milk over the pudding. Cover and cook on low 3.5 hours. (Some cookers only take 2.5 hours).
The top will bounce back when done and it looks dry on top.
Turn crock pot to warm or off and put toppings on - when the marshmallows are pretty melted it's ready to serve! Top with vanilla ice cream in the bowls.
