Autumn has arrived and we’re slowly moving away from the grill and light summer meals to hearty, cool weather comfort food. The oven is working full time now, with less danger of overheating the kitchen. No one likes a sweaty cook!

And I’ve even dusted off my crockpot so I can come home to the aroma of a slow-cooked meal ready to go. But have you ever thought of making a dessert in your crockpot?

There are tons of Slow Cooker Dessert Recipes out there—I’m just late to the game! With the arrival of autumn, more folks are making slow cooker recipes. I was inspired to research slow cooker dessert options. When I found a gooey, intensely chocolate slow cooker brownie dessert recipe, I was sold.

Crockpot Brownies

Rich, soft, with chunks of melted semi-sweet chocolate, these brownies exceeded my expectations. This slow cooker dessert wins no beauty contest, but that’s not the point, is it?

A little smoke and mirrors by serving it with a scoop of cold vanilla ice cream and a couple of berries and mint sprig, turn this delicious mound of chocolate decadence into a beautiful dessert. And do I even have to mention the marvelous scents emanating from my kitchen while this cooked?

And as another bonus, it’s a snap to make. I lined my crockpot insert with non-stick foil, used one bowl to mix all the ingredients, and then transferred them into the slow cooker.

Cooking this brownie dessert in a slow cooker allows the trapped steam to keep the brownies super moist and tender!

Three hours later, these brownies were ready to eat. Perfect for tailgating at home or any gathering where your oven is already in use. If you are a fan of chocolate, you will be thrilled with this crockpot brownies dessert.

  1. Leave it to you Liz to come up with a scrumptious rich chocolate dessert made in a slow cooker. I can only imagine how it must smell when it is cooking. And I know it would taste great because it is one of your recipes.

  2. Chocolate and ice cream – the perfect duo! Looks delish!

  3. These sound awesome ! I’m pinning to use during the summer when I don’t want to turn on my oven but I’m dying for some chocolate!

  4. I’ve been waiting to see this one since you posted the title, Liz, and it does not disappoint! Warm, ooey gooey chocolate brownies are the best and looks don’t count at all. I cannot wait to try this!

  5. Slow cooker brownies? What an amazing idea! I’m sure your family loved them too.

  6. I agree that it doesn’t matter what the brownies look like! What a fabulous idea … I can’t think of anything better than arriving home to a cooker full of brownies! (I think I would even be tempted to skip dinner and just have these!)

  7. I’ll bet it did smell great! I bookmarked the pork and cabbage stew, that sounds amazing! Don’t know if I’ve mentioned it recently but this is my favorite blog party of the week:@)

  8. ohhh…. I’d die to have it with vanilla ice cream! Looks insanely delicious!

  9. Oh yes.. it definitely tastes great with ice cream 🙂

  10. The crumb on your brownie looks lovely, Liz. And with the extra chunks of chocolate, I know it’s scrumptious. Good to know foil works as well as parchment in the slow cooker.
