Slow Cooker Dessert Recipes
I love Crockpot dessert recipes because I can start them earlier in the day and then forget about them. Dinner time is hectic enough without also worrying about getting a dessert on the table.
While I don’t serve dessert with every meal, I do a few times a week. Using slow cooker dessert recipes means that I can focus on dinner when it’s dinner time.
Of course, if you want to serve a slow cooker dinner and a slow cooker dessert, you’ll need to invest in another slow cooker.
There are a lot of different types of slow cooker dessert recipes out there from cakes to fruit desserts. We generally save cakes and super sweet desserts for special occasions like holidays and birthdays.
For regular dinnertime desserts, we look for souffle, crisps, and other fruit-based desserts. One of my favorites is my Paleo apple butter recipe that I make when we go apple picking.
My Crockpot flan recipe is another favorite but it’s a bit more labor-intensive.
What you need for these slow cooker dessert recipes
Smaller slow cooker – While you may have a huge 6-quart slow cooker to make dinner for your family, you may find that a 4-quart slow cooker is a better option for desserts. For couples, this 2-quart slow cooker is ideal.
Slow cooker liner – You can use the disposable slow cooker liners, but I always worry about them when I cook, plus you throw them away each time. This slow cooker liner is BPA free and it’s reusable.
Can you bake in a slow cooker?
Yes, you definitely can. I recommend a 5 or 6-quart slow cooker if you want to try baking. The round style is best for this type of slow cooker dessert recipe. That way you can use a round cake pan.
Here are a few other slow cooker dessert recipes to get you started. I’ve always wanted to try a slow cooker dump cake so that’s what I’ll be trying next.
