Busy Mom’s Cooking Hacks: 5 Decadent Crock Pot Desserts For Dummies Will Blow Your Mind

Not THIS BITCH again.

Not THIS BITCH again.

I really love slinging together easy slow cooker meals, as you can tell, but I have such a problem with desserts. Yes, I will eat them. Yes, I love sugar in my belly. But I hate the patience and painstaking care required to craft a beautifully frosted cake for a family brunch.

NOPE. I would much rather buy a box of premade brownies from the grocery store bakery, set out a carton of ice cream, and call it a day. Maybe I have internal psychological issues, but I just feel so oppressed when I spend hours baking a dessert, only to have it wolfed down within five minutes. HOW DARE YOU.

Fortunately, in this modern age of technology, I have found a solution. I have always associated crock pot with family dinner. But apparently, my crock pot is even better than I have been led to believe. My crock pot has the power to slowly bake delicious desserts for hours with very little effort involved on my part. I have found a way to game the elaborate world of baking and cut down on wasted time with super delicious slow cooker dessert creations.

Stop fucking around with your oven and make these stupid easy desserts at your next family event:

1. Crock Pot Peanut Butter Cup Cake: So kid-friendly, it’s not even funny.

2. Molten Chocolate Lava Crockpot Cake: You had me at molten… and lava… and cake.

3. Crock Pot Blackberry Cobbler: If you live anywhere near the south, your friends will kiss you on the mouth after eating this dessert.

4. Crockpot Perfect Praline Cheesecake: Proof that there is a God.

    She’s not feeling on any veggies this week? #HDY

    Loving the White Trash cobbler. Only to make it truly White Trash you need to use off-brand soda. Like, Dr. Thunder.

    • Bethany Ramos

      OMG!!! You nailed this. Gut buster.

    • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

      My sex nickname is now Dr. Thunder

    • Valerie

      Then mine is Queen Lightning.

    • Butt Trophy Recipient

      Mine is Dr. Lightning!

      (but because it’s over in a flash…)

    • Valerie

      Quality over quantity, Butt Socks. As Flight of the Conchords said “2 minutes in heaven is better than 1 minute in heaven”!

    • Bethany Ramos

      Love that show!

    • Valerie

      Now Business Time is going to go thru my head the rest of the day.

      “I remove my clothes very, very clumsily
      Tripping sensuously over my pants
      Now I’m naked except for my socks”

      SOCKS?!?

    • Bethany Ramos

      LOLOL Everybody knows it’s business time!

    • Valerie

      Are you wearing that baggy t-shirt from your old work several years ago? Awwww yeah.

    • kate

      team building exercise nineteen ninety niiiine….

    • Valerie

      Lol. God I love that video.

    • Rachel Sea

      Because it’s Wednesday.

    • Spongeworthy

      That’s what they’re called business socks

    • Valerie

      Ooooo!

    • FormerlyKnownAsWendy

      Love the Butt Socks!

    • Megan Zander

      My friends and I always drink dr thunder at our shindigs. It’s a throw back to the poor college days.

    • Valerie

      My high school boyfriend and his friends loved it. Lol.

    • Maria Guido

      Is this real????

    • Valerie

      Yup. From Wal Mart!

    • Megan Zander

      Personally, I prefer Diet Dr. Thunder. It rolls off the tongue better.

    • Valerie

      All of the Thunder, none of the calories!

    • Kay_Sue

      I read this like a WWE announcer in my head and it made it even better.

    • Zettai

      You can’t go more trashy than the fake-Dew Hillbilly Holler.

    • Valerie

      I just Googled and died. That is amazing.

  • Marianna

    I wonder how Mr. Butt Socks is going to feel about this picture since there’s no veggie for her to look at/hold/bite/smell seductively.

    • Valerie

      And #3 includes a reference to kissing friends on the mouth. Lesbian joke in 3…2…1.

    • Megan Zander

      IDK, he was having all the feels yesterday and he totally snoozed on a lesbian joke opportunity last week, even after I pointed it out . I think he’s sick. Or body snatched.

    • Valerie

      I asked him if he had been hacked.

    • Butt Trophy Recipient

      I would prefer to hear your lesbian experience(s)

    • Valerie

      Beth, should we share?

    • Bethany Ramos

      It involves late night texting…

    • Valerie

      ….about strep throat and toddler allergies…..
      Getting hot yet?

    • Butt Trophy Recipient

      Well, I guess the throat part can be hot… maybe…

    • Bethany Ramos

      She’s way too innocent this time.

    • Megan Zander

      Innocent? Or making that face because there is something going on behind her? Hmmmm….

    • Maria Guido

      she looks like she’s getting cilantro.

    • Megan Zander

      Hahahahahahaha. Cilantro FTW.

    • Kay_Sue

      I hope you know I just nearly ruined my MacBook at that….I hope you are pleased with yourself.

      No really, I do hope that you are, that was great. :-P

    • Valerie

      Yeah, she looks caught by surprise for sure.

  • Alex Lee

    Gluten-Free
    Can add rum
    Can also add Crème brûlée caramelized top with sugar + blowtorch

    • Kay_Sue

      Rum makes everything better. Especially parenting.

    • Rachel Sea

      You can rub it on the baby’s gums to soothe their teething so they can sleep. And teeth don’t stop coming in until they’re, like, 13.

      And people say bedtime routines are hard.

    • Kay_Sue

      I am also recruiting you to write a chapter in my parenting book.

  • Butt Trophy Recipient

    YES! My favorite stock photo chick!

    • Valerie

      I knew this would draw you out.

    • Megan Zander

      I really wonder how the audition for this role went. Like somewhere is there a pile of photos from the reject models all trying to nibble seductively on a carrot and failing miserably?

    • Valerie

      FAIL

    • Megan Zander

      Exactly!!!

    • Valerie

      She looks like she’s having a moment of regret with her decision to do veggie fetish modeling. She is Angry Biting that celery for sure.

    • Butt Trophy Recipient

      DON’T.USE.YOUR.TEETH!!!

    • Valerie

      All the camera guys are visibly cringing.

    • Megan Zander

      And her hair is going to get in the way.

    • Valerie

      I am gagging imagining the hair mingling with the stringy celery.

    • Butt Trophy Recipient

      You’re a gagger?

    • Valerie

      Only with stringy things.

    • Butt Trophy Recipient

      :(

    • Valerie

      Why sad? Is it bad that a person gags on celery strings? And hair? And shredded lettuce??

    • Butt Trophy Recipient

      Sheesh Val, chew your food and hair before swallowing

    • Valerie

      I’m working on it. I just worked down a whole bunch of spring greens and slivered almonds and I seem to be handling it well. *Progress*

    • Bethany Ramos

      She has sooooo many seductive kitchen stock photos in her portfolio. Trust.

    • Butt Trophy Recipient

      HAWT!

    • Valerie

      Her modeling career can only go up from here.

    • Bethany Ramos

      THIS BITCH.

  • Jennifer Freeman

    Chocolate lava cake is totally happening tonight! Only I am lazy and will use the box of cake mix u have.

  • Kay_Sue

    I really want that peanut butter cake. That is so going on the menu.

    • Butt Trophy Recipient

      Oh! Can I come over?

    • Kay_Sue

      Naw. I don’t want to share.

    • Butt Trophy Recipient

      :(

    • Valerie

      At least you have Veggie Fetish Stock Chick to fall back on!

    • Butt Trophy Recipient

      Yea… but I dunno… :(

      Kay’s peanuts sounded so appealing

    • Kay_Sue

      I’m a meanie, what can I say? Also, I would kill over peanut butter cups.

  • Tea

    These always get posted when my crock pot has something boring in it, like a rabbit carcass.

    (We’re making stock.)

  • libraryofbird

    This is my favorite recipe, people have been known to throw a pot luck just so I will bring this. http://sockladies.blogspot.com/2008/11/rocky-road-crock-pot-cake.html?m=1

    • Bethany Ramos

      Oh, YUM.

    • libraryofbird

      Plus once you get the basic idea down you can change up the flavors. I have done red velvet, turtle, gingerbread, s’mores, kitchen sink (all the sunde toppings you can think of). It basically taste like warm brownie batter.

  • Jem

    I’ve made a pretty good apple crisp in the crock pot.

    Fave desert: Nutella mug cake or really any mug cake can be baked in the microwave: http://eugeniekitchen.com/nutella-mug-cake/

  • Blue

    All of that stuff looks gross. Not a fan of messy, gloppy “dessert” of any kind though, so it might just be me.
