Slow Cooker Brownie Dessert

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.

    I don’t have a slow cooker, so is it possible to try and make it in the oven?

    • Hi, Michal, Yes, I think it could be made in the oven, but I’m not sure what to tell you about the time and temperature. I’d try lower heat than usual (maybe 300º) and watch carefully as it will be done much quicker and you’ll want it have a pudding like consistency in the middle. Hope you give it a shot!
