  1. In large bowl, combine butter and sugars and beat on high speed for 1-2 minutes until combined. Add applesauce, grated apple, cinnamon, vanilla, and eggs and beat until well blended, 1-2 minutes. Add both kinds of melted chocolate and stir gently. Mix together flour, baking soda and powder in small bowl. Add to chocolate mixture alternately with buttermilk, beginning and ending with dry ingredients. Then stir in 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips and 1/2 cup chopped walnuts.

  2. Line a 3-1/2 quart slow cooker with heavy duty foil, making sure it extends past top of slow cooker so you can grip it. Spray foil with flour based nonstick baking spray. Add batter and smooth so top is even. Cover and cook on HIGH for 1-1/2 hours. In small bowl, combine chopped white chocolate and finely chopped walnuts. Sprinkle over cake. Replace cover and cook on HIGH for 3/4 to 1 hour longer until a toothpick inserted in center comes out free of batter. Remove lid and let cake stand until lukewarm.

  3. Lift cake out of crockpot using foil and spatula. Carefully peel foil away from cake and place on serving plate. In small bowl combine powdered sugar and cocoa and mix well. Sprinkle cake with cocoa mixture and serve. Serves 8
