A few months ago, I made a delicious dessert in the crockpot: Chocolate Cobbler. I was a little unsure of how it would turn out, but it was so good … and so easy! Especially for someone like me who likes to eat homemade desserts but doesn’t really like making them.
Because of the success of that dish, I decided to seek out other crockpot desserts. I came across this recipe on Cassie Craves (which is an awesome blog, by the way).
A crockpot dessert + peanut butter = the magic words. I was sold.
I made this yummy dessert while we were making dinner one night. It was ready to eat at the perfect time.
While this recipe wasn’t as gooey as the Chocolate Cobbler, it was still very good. This dessert was much more cake-like as opposed to fudgey-like. Depending on which one I’m in the mood for, I can definitely see myself making both of them again.
1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 tbsp. canola oil
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup sugar, divided
1/2 cup flour
3/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
3 tbsp. cocoa
1 cup boiling water
Use a 1 1/2 qt. crockpot generously coated with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, combine the milk, peanut butter, oil and vanilla; beat until well blended. In a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup sugar, flour, baking powder and salt; gradually beat into peanut butter mixture until blended. Spread evenly into your crockpot.
In another small bowl, combine the cocoa and remaining sugar; stir in boiling water. Pour into crockpot. Do not stir.
Cook on high for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until a toothpick comes out clean. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream. Enjoy!
