Something Sweet

I wanted to start off with something you don’t see everyday, dessert in a crockpot. When I’d tell someone about creating a dessert in the crockpot, they’d give me that strange look like I was crazy, or ask, “isn’t that more suitable for pot roast?”

I wanted to try it, who cares about pot roast for dessert?

I pulled up my pinterest and searched for a crockpot dessert and I came across a cookie/brownie combination where you create the two ingredients seperately then layer them in the crockpot together; set it on high for a few hours; then serve. I was slightly nervous about putting so much sugar without much liquid right into the crockpot. Luckily for me, I found those wonderful liners in Target where after you cook everything right into the bag (in the pot), there’s practically no clean-up. The result was a hit!

“Heaven in a Crockpot”

1 box fudge brownie mix
1 pouch chocolate chip cookie mix
1/2 cup butter (salted), melted
4 eggs
ice cream (optional)

The ingredients needed for this glorious adventure!

I mixed up the Betty Crocker mix with1/4 cup melted butter and 2 eggs.

I then mixed up the remaining 1/4 cup butter with 2 eggs.

The consistency was a little weird compared to what I’m used to when making the box mixes but it’s understandable. My husband loves this part!

Layer in the mixes, alternating a few scoops of each until each mix is completely in. (Note: see the crockpot liner?)

Cover and put on high for 2-3 hours. I usually go in between to the less time side, since anticipation typically gets to me (and the hubby too).

Once completed (you’ll know, it’ll smell heavenly), I served it warm with a scoop of ice cream and drizzles of chocolate sauce and caramel.

We both loved it! I’m SUPER happy I used the liner since clean-up might require a decently given soak.

 

-crock on!
