Slow Cooker Hot Fudge Brownies

“Life is to be enjoyed, not endured.” –Gordon B. Hinckley

 

I got this recipe from LDS Living magazine.

• 2 cups brownie mix
• 1 egg
• 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
• ¼ cup water
• cup milk chocolate chips
• ½ cup brown sugar
• 2 tablespoons cocoa
• ¾ cup boiling water
• Chocolate frosting (optional)
• Vanilla ice cream (optional)

Combine brownie mix, egg, oil, water, and chocolate chips in a bowl. Spread batter in greased 3- to 4-quart slow cooker. In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, cocoa, and boiling water, making sure to completely dissolve sugar and cocoa. Pour over batter. Cover and cook 2 hours on high heat. Turn off slow cooker and let sit for 30 minutes. Spoon into bowls and serve with ice cream and hot fudge. Refrigerate leftovers. If you prefer frosting on your brownies, let them cool completely, then spread on your favorite chocolate icing.

Makes 8 to 10 servings.

Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other one thing. –Abraham Lincoln

This recipe and photo credit: LDS Living Magazine.  These brownies taste better the next day.

•    4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
•    ¾ cup butter
•    2 cups sugar
•    pinch of salt
•    3 eggs
•    ½ cup buttermilk or milk
•    2 teaspoons vanilla
•    1¾ cups flour, divided use
•    1 cup milk chocolate chips or semisweet chips

Preheat oven to 350º F. Butter and flour a 9 × 13-inch baking dish. In a large microwaveable bowl, heat chocolate and butter on high at one minute intervals, stirring often to avoid scorching. When chocolate mixture is melted and smooth, add sugar and salt. Stir in eggs, one a time, and then buttermilk and vanilla. Add 1½ cups flour and mix well.

In a small separate bowl, stir together remaining ¼ cup flour and chocolate chips. Pour chips and any flour from bowl into brownies. Stir until just combined. Pour mixture into prepared baking dish.

Bake for about 28–32 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into center comes out with a few fudgy crumbs. Do not over bake. Let cool for at least 30 minutes. Store brownies in same baking dish, uncut until serving.
