After a pot of this ooey gooey chocolaty dessert, your family may never be the same! Don’t just keep it for your own family though – this would also be an awesome potluck food – mix it up before you go and cook a little, then plug it back in when you get there.This recipe takes 3 1/2 hours to cook, so it would be JUST done when everyone’s done eating the potluck meal, and fresh, hot, and ready to eat/top with ice cream by the time everyone’s ready for dessert. Yum!
We also made a slightly different version (Rocky Road Cake Recipe – Prepper’s Pantry Style recipe) which is great if you’re out of eggs or some other ingredients. We like to cook from our pantries here at MP!
Easy Crock Pot Dessert Recipe: Cheesecake in the Crockpot – Hillbilly Housewife
Yes! This recipe for Praline Cheesecake in the crock pot sounds absolutely divine! Thanks to Hillbilly Housewife for this fantastic cheesecake recipe! With a graham-crackery crust, and simple ingredients (cream cheese, brown sugar, 2 eggs, whipping cream, vanilla, and flour) this is a winner for sure! I personally adore the richness of cheesecake, but can’t stand the ordeal of making one. Mine always (ALWAYS) crack, and I’ve never made a water bath that didn’t get spilled – but cheesecake in the slow cooker? I can do that!
Crock Pot Berry Cobbler – Taste of Home
This Berry Cobbler recipe is perfect for using some of those fresh berries packed with antioxidants you picked and froze this summer. We love cobbler in my house, but I hate the extra time and mess, so I’m all about the slow-cooker cobbler! This is a very easy, simple and DELICIOUS recipe – try it! You just need flour, baking powder, sugar, cinnamon, an egg, milk, oil, salt, and – of course – berries. I think I’m going to make this tomorrow, my kids’ll love me forever!

I bet you thought you couldn’t make pumpkin pie in your slow cooker – well, you were wrong! This recipe has the Holidays written all over it – it’s delicious, and contrary to what you will read all over the Internet – you certainly CAN have pumpkin pie with crust in the crock pot! It’s delicate and creamy and delicious, but best of all – it’s so amazingly easy that you’ll be done in no time flat, and the kids love to help. My favorite part of this pumpkin pie is the crust, it’s crunchy and nutty and fabulous – this recipe is a keeper in my house, and will be as long as I have a slow cooker.
Crockpot old and dying? This is the slowcooker I have a love.Hamilton Beach 33969 Set and Forget 6-Quart Slow Cooker It’s great because it has programable times and temperatures!
Sweet Crockpot Dessert Biscuits – MomPrepares
When I saw this recipe for overnight biscuits in a slow-cooker, I about flipped. I hate mornings, so anything that makes them easier is a wonderful thing in my book. Using a biscuit mix makes them even easier – these are a regular staple in my house, and my kids love them! I know – biscuits aren’t dessert – but wait, I’m not done! Roll the biscuit dough in cinnamon sugar before you put them in the crock pot, and it’s a whole new day – they’re like mini cinnamon rolls – dip ’em in sweetened cream cheese, and it’s dessert to me! Or still great for breakfast – either way, it’s fast to prepare, sweet, and good good good to eat – the trifecta of success in my house!

Slow Cooker Desserts Rock!
With all of these excellent recipes, I’ll definitely be putting my crock pot to work this fall and winter – I don’t just use it for pot roast – I make everything from slow-cooker bread, to breakfast omelets overnight! It uses less power than the oven, it doesn’t heat up your kitchen, and it’s easy to use – I love cooking slow, especially now that I know how to make these yummy desserts in the slow cooker!
