Crock Pot Chocolate Fudge Brownie- insanely fudgy, moist brownie made in a Crock Pot. The easiest dessert ever!

Hi Bold Bakers!

Recently I have been using my Crock Pot more and more to bake. YES, bake. Crock Pots and Slow Cookers are amazing for baking because they bake and steam at the same time so you end up with an incredibly moist and soft dessert like my Hot Fudge Brownie in a Crock Pot Recipe. It is so amazing you will want to eat it straight out of the pot.

How many of you have a Crock Pot or rice cooker in your house right now? Crock Pots are fantastic, inexpensive pieces of kitchen equipment.  If you live in a dorm or have a small kitchen they are especially handy as they can replace your stove top or oven. You might already own a Crock Pot or Slow Cooker, so if you do then dust it off and let’s get baking. If you don’t have a Crock Pot, don’t worry. You can find my conventional oven baking instructions below.

The difference between baking in the oven is you get dry heat so it forms a crust on your baking. The beauty of baking in a Crock Pot is you get heat and steam at the same time. Imagine what that does.

Making desserts in a Crock Pot also means that you save on oven space. This brownie can be prepared ahead of time and timed to cooked at your convenience. Then once you are ready for dessert you can set it and forget it until it pings!

NOTE: This Chocolate Fudge Brownie can even be made the day before and placed in the Crock Pot in the fridge and then cooked off the next day. Also, resist the urge to remove the lid while cooking. You want to keep all the steam in to cook your brownie. Cook until there is a slight jiggle in the middle.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups (12oz/340g) dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup (8oz/225g) unsalted butter, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 5 eggs , at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • cups (6 ¼ oz/177g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • cups (12oz/340g) sugar
  • ½ cup (3oz/90g) light brown sugar
  • Handful of chocolate chips
  • cups (4oz/115g) brown sugar
  • 1 cups (8floz/225ml) boiling water
  • 1 ½ tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

Instructions

  • Melt the chocolate and butter together in a large bowl in the microwave or over a saucepan of simmering water. Heat just until the chocolate and butter are completely melted and smooth. Set aside to cool a little.
  • Whisk in the sugars. This will cool down the mix before you add in the eggs.
  • Whisk in the eggs and vanilla to the chocolate mixture and whisk until combined.
  • Lastly fold in the flour, salt and cocoa over the chocolate mixture until just combined. Then add in your handful of chocolate chips and stir in.
  • Butter your crock pot dish and pour in your batter. Flatten it out with the spatula on top.
  • In another bowl, combine the brown sugar, water and cocoa. Pour over batter without stirring. This mix make the brownie incredibly moist.
  • Cook on High for 1 ½ - 2 hours. Every crock pot is different so your timing may vary. Keep the lid on while cooking as it needs all of that lovely steam to help it cook and stay moist. You will know when the brownie is cooked because it will be firm on top. (this recipe can also be cooked in an oven, see notes)
  • Remove it from the crock pot dish from the crock pot and set it aside to cool down for 30 minutes.
  • Enjoy warm with some vanilla ice cream.

Recipe Notes

This Chocolate Fudge brownie can be made the day before and place in the crock pot pot in the fridge and then cooked off the next day.
This recipe can also be baked in an oven with a lid over the dish. Bake at 350oF (180oC) .It will take less time in an oven so keep an eye on it.

Hi Gemma,
I would really like to make this recipe as it looks delicious however, I’m concerned that it may be too much for my mini crock pot that is 1.5 quarts large. Is there any alterations I can make? I love your recipes, especially your ice cream recipe. You’re such an inspiration to me and got me into cooking.
Thanks 🙂

Hi Gemma,

I’m having guests over this weekend and am hoping to make this dessert. However, I don’t have a crock pot and I don’t want to use the oven because I want to get the sort of softness and moist texture in the brownie that you get from slow cooking it.

So I was wondering if I could just use a stockpot with a lid instead. Could you please guide me on what adjustments I might have to make on things like time, liquid, heat, etc.?
Thank you.

Do you add the liquid before you refrigerate the day before, or add when ready to cook?

Gemma, these crockpot brownies are delicious, ooey gooey , and a chocoholics dream. Going to make another pot tomorrow. Never had brownies to be eaten like pudding until I made your recipe and I’m sure glad I did. Gave it a 5 star.
