40 Crock Pot Slow Cooker Dessert & Candy Recipes {Saturday Inspiration & Ideas}

40 Crock Pot Slow Cooker Dessert & Candy Recipes {Saturday Inspiration & Ideas}

I love breaking out the slow cooker this time of year to ‘fix and forget’ some warm comfort meals. While I have used my crock-pots and slow cookers for many convenient dishes, I have never really thought about using them to make any tasty desserts.
So this week’s Saturday Inspiration and Ideas is a collection of 40 different crock pot slow cooker recipes. I really like the idea of having a nice warm dessert already cooking and ready to go without spending any additional time away from guests during a dinner party. There are even recipes for crock pot candy which look incredibly easy to make for holiday gifts.
