We all know what slow-cooking meats can do: it makes them extra tender and juicy. So, what will it do to baked goods? The answer, as Slow Cooker Brownies can attest to, is that it turns brownies into their fudgiest, chewiest selves! Mmm, that chocolate goodness baked to perfection and is almost impossibly sweet! Slow Cooker Brownies is the home-cooking hero that will change the way you look at ordinary brownies!
Ingredients
1 1/4 cups flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
2 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips, divided
1 cup sugar
3 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
Directions
Step 1: Line the bottom of a slow cooker with a ring of foil.
Step 2: Spray the entirety of the slow cooker with nonstick spray.
Step 3: Place a sheet of parchment paper inside the slow cooker, ensuring there is enough overhang to be able to pull the brownies out later.
Step 4: In a small bowl, whisk the flour, the cocoa, the baking soda, and the salt together.
Step 5: In a medium, microwave-safe bowl, add the butter and 1 1/2 cups of the chocolate chips and microwave in 30-second increments, stirring after each session, until the chocolate is melted and smooth.
Step 6: Add the sugar to the chocolate mixture and stir to combine.
Step 7: Stir the eggs and the vanilla into the chocolate mixture until it is smooth.
Step 8: Add the flour mixture and the remaining chocolate chips into the chocolate mixture and stir until it is just combined, ensuring not to over mix.
Step 9: Transfer the batter to the prepared slow cooker.
Step 10: Cover the slow cooker and cook on low heat for 3 hours.
Step 11: Uncover the slow cooker, turn the slow cooker off, and allow the brownies to cool in the slow cooker for 1 hour.
Step 12: Lift the brownies out of the slow cooker using the parchment paper and allow them to set completely.
Step 13: Cut the brownies into bars and serve
