Slow Cooker Hot Fudge Brownies
Quick and tasty desserts are easy to make in the crock-pot. This recipe for Hot Fudge Brownies has 3 main ingredients. A box of brownie mix, some chocolate syrup and water. That is it!
Depending on which brownie box mix you use, you are adding in two or three more ingredients. But for me, these are all ingredients I have in my house.
First time making this recipe and it seems like the water mixed with the hot chocolate is just too much water. I was worried that the recipe was going to be a disaster. I recommend cooking it almost the entire 3 hours. First time I made this, at two hours cooked, half of the brownies were still too liquid.
Second time I made this, I let the brownie mixture cook a full 3 hours. The entire brownie cooked through and there were no watery portions.
I tested the recipe on my kids. They gave it a big thumbs up. My oldest did give some feedback and added that more is not better on the Crock-Pot Hot Fudge Brownies. She said it was very rich in taste and a smaller portion was best.
