When you think of a slow cooker, I bet the first things that comes to mind are delicious savory dishes like soups, meats, chilies and more. But did you know that you could make much more than tasty dinners and lunches in your most used kitchen tool?

Desserts and sweet breakfasts are also very easy to make. Just a quick web search will turn up at least a dozen sweet treat recipes. Here are just a few ideas:

Cinnamon Raisin Oatmeal

Fluffy French Toast

Peach or Berry Cobbler

Hot Chocolate

Croissant Bread Pudding

Chocolate Ganche for cakes and other baked goods

Stuffed Dutch Apples

Caramels and Sweet Fondues

Fruit Compote


Slow cooker French Toast has become a Christmas tradition in our house. It's sweet and is great for feeding a crowd.

I've made quite a few desserts in my slow cooker!  YUM!  I think our favorite so far is the hot fudge sundae cake!

I have never done desserts in the slow cooker. French toast would be good.

Yum!  I have only ever made a breakfast casserole in the crock pot.  I haven't tried a dessert but definitely want to now.

I've never done desserts in my crockpot. When I look at recipes I can never remember the size of my crockpot.
