Baking brownies in a slow cooker such as a Crock-Pot frees up your oven. It also allows you to make a fix-and-forget dessert via the same technique that allows you to prepare roasts and stews with little muss and fuss. Crock-Pot brownies feature a gooey center, similar to chocolate lava cake, and a crunchy crust. Spooned into a pretty bowl and topped with a scoop of ice cream, Crock-Pot brownies are an elegant and tasty dessert.
Spray the inside of a slow cooker with cooking-oil-and-flour spray. Place the slow cooker upside down on paper towels for 5 minutes to drain off any excess oil.
Cut a piece of parchment paper with scissors to fit the bottom of the cooker. Press the parchment paper in place over the oil with your fingers.
Mix together the brownie mix or ingredients in a bowl. Spoon the mixture into the slow cooker and put the lid on.
Set the slow cooker's temperature to low and allow the brownies to cook for 3 hours. Transfer the cooked brownie mixture into bowls with a large serving spoon.
