By now we all know how great our crock pots are at making soups, stews and even mashed potatoes. It’s a huge time-saver and anxiety-diminisher when it comes to easy, set-it-and-forget-it meals, especially when you have a million other things going on. But what if we told you it could rock dessert too? That’s right, from cake to brownies, your crockpot can do it all. See the deliciously decadent proof below.
2. Snickers Cheesecake: This creamy cheesecake is filled with chopped Snickers, drenched in decadent caramel sauce and so easy to make you’ll look for any excuse to show it off. (via Passion for Savings)
4. Triple Chocolate Brownies: These brownies are the perfect mixture of sweet + salty thanks to the combination of bittersweet and semi-sweet chocolate chips, walnuts and corse sea salt. (via Martha Stewart)
5. Chocolate-Covered Peanut Clusters: If you can drop spoonfuls of chocolatey goodness on wax paper, then you can handle this one. What you might not be able to handle is eating just one. (via Fake Ginger)
6. Chocolate Turtle Bread Pudding: This is not your ordinary bread pudding. Cubed French bread soaks up the melted chocolate and caramel chips to create a dessert that will earn you serious bragging rights. (via The Gunny Sack)
7. Cinnamon Rolls: Since these cinnamon rolls take almost two hours to bake, they are great for those weekends when you have company staying over. By the time everyone’s had a shower and a cup of coffee, they’ll be ready to eat. (via Creme de la Crumb)
8. Blueberry Lemon Cake: Not only is this cake vegan, but it’s also made with whole wheat flour and ground flaxseed for those days where you’re craving something sweet but don’t want to compromise the calories. (via Healthy Slow Cooking)
13. Apple Crisp: The aroma of simmering apples, cinnamon and brown sugar will make the four-hour cook time on this dish seem like an eternity, but trust that it will be well worth the wait. (via The Taylor House)
