Crock Pot Brownies

I was in charge of dessert tonight and thought I’d try something in the Crock Pot. So I went hunting for a Brownie Recipe for slow cookiers and came up with this delicious recipe from What’s Cookin’ Italian Style Cuisine. I actually goofed a little and thought the recipe said to cook on high, so my edges got a little overdone, but all was well with the middle, because we noticed the problem early enough. These brownies were delish! I also had some Neapolitan Ice Cream and thought I’d whip up some homemade Hot Fudge, to go along with it. You can get my hot fudge recipe HERE.

Crock Pot Brownies
Recipe Type: Dessert
Prep time: 15 mins
Cook time: 4 hours
Total time: 4 hours 15 mins
Serves: 10+
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweteded cocoa powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (but salted will work fine), chopped
  • 8 oz unsweetened chocolate squares, chopped
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup walnuts coarsely chopped (optional)
  • 1 cup chocolate chips of any variety (I used White Chocolate Chips)
  • parchment paper
  1. Spray a 5 qt Slow Cooker with cooking spray. Line the bottom with parchment paper to fit, and lightly spray the paper. This will make for easier cleanup and removal.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt (omit the salt if using salted butter).
  3. In a microwave safe bowl, microwave the chopped butter and unsweetened chocolate in 30 second intervals. Stir after each interval, and continue until the chocolate is melted.
  4. Add sugar to the melted chocolate and stir to combine.
  5. Add eggs and flour mixture to your wet mixture. Stir in nuts and chocolate chips, just until moistened. Do not overmix.
  6. Carefully pour batter into your slow cooker and smooth the top with a spatula.
  7. Cover and cook on low for 3 1/2 hours. Then uncover and cook for 30 more minutes. Remove the crock/dish from the heating source and run a knife around the edge to loosen brownies from sides. Let cool at least 2 hours. I actually did not wait to cool because we were antsy, and it was just fine.
  8. Flip brownies out onto a cutting board. I found it was easiest to do this by placing a place on the top of the dish, and then flipping upside down. Carefully peel off the parchment paper and cut into squares.

You can cut into squares and frost or leave plain and add your favorite ice cream, whipped cream and hot fudge to the top.
