Crockpot Brownie Recipe

This is an interesting dessert that you can make and  is pretty foolproof. The crockpot keeps the cake moist, is a dense chocolate flavor. The nice thing I found with was, I can be doing many other things in the house or go out, leaving this to cook and not have to watch it so closely.
It was a fun recipe to make. The house smelled so darn good!


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 (= 1 stick and cut up into pieces)
8 ounces of chopped bitter sweet chocolate chopped
1 cup sugar
3 large eggs lightly beaten
1 cup walnuts coarsely chopped
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
parchment paper

Spray a 5 quart crock pot(slow cooker) with cooking spray.  Line the bottom with parchment paper to fit and lightly spray the paper.
In a small bowl, mix together flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt.
Place  in microwave safe bowl, butter and  bitter sweet chocolate and heat in 30 second intervals stirring,  until the chocolate is melted. Add sugar, stir to combine. Add eggs and flour mixture, walnuts and chocolate chips, stir until moistened do not over mix.  Carefully pour into slow cooker and smooth the top with a spatula.
Cover and cook on low for 3 1/2 hours. Then uncover and cook for 30 more minutes. Remove the crock and run a knife around the edge to loosen. Let cool at least 2 hours. Flip on to cutting board  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.

For A Mocha and Chocolate Frosting:

Frosting:
2 cups confectionery sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla
old coffee

Add old morning coffee, a tablespoon at a time until desired thickness enough to spread on brownie.
add 2 tablespoon softened butter. Beat till smooth.
Make a separate batch using the same ingredients (adding chocolate), 2 tablespoons of dry cocoa powder to the bowl mix till smooth.
Spread with white frosting then drizzle some of the chocolate frosting on top. If too thick add more coffee to thin.

This looks like something I would see at a restaurant. Your presentation is just amazing. It is pretty neat that you can make this in a crock pot. Also, I like the mocha ingredient for the frosting. I think this one is a winner!

This is not your mama's crockpot recipe, well at least not my mamas. Dessert from a crockpot just doesn't seem like it would work. But the brownie with the ice cream on top looks gorgeous. The food photo sites should take this one.
