While we enjoyed the Amazing Slow Cooker Chocolate Cake, I've been on such a sugar buzz that I've not been able to choose what dessert 2 may be... I just finished perusing addtional recipes from some alternate sites. Some call for boxed mixes (but not
ALL recipes.) I really don't know that I want to travel down that road... If you know me at all, you already know that I prefer from scratch.
Here's a list of the recipes that I've found so far. If you wish to assist in choosing my next dessert, please join in the fun!

I'm also open to you suggesting links of desserts that I might enjoy, but word of warning, tapioca and rice puddings are OUT. Bread Puddings are "iffy." Too much chocolate and my eyes may change color - lol
Now, I'll tell you up front, that as I went to the grocery today, and as I don't have all of the needed ingredients for all of these recipes (such as cream cheese) I will abide by the winning "vote," just it might take a few days to get to the store, let alone
actuall make the dessert! Once that dessert is made, I will report on it regarding overall flavor, and was I able to follow the directions, or did I have to adjust cooking time, etc.
On a different note, it goes without saying, that summer is HERE, in Phoenix... The weather folk are predicting 117 by the end of this week... (ugh...!) Perhaps it's time to put away the bbq for the remainder of the hot spell, and choose to cook inside!
I do have two large slow cookers, so while one is housing a dessert, the other could be bubbling away with a dinner meal. I'm also getting more into using the "convection" setting on the toaster oven, which allows either shorter cook time, or lower cook temperature.
Either I guess would be appreciated in the heat of the afternoon! I may complain about my kitchen being located in the middle of the house (surrounded by interior spaces,) but my dear friend Denise has a kitchen that faces the west. She loves watching the
sun set each day... but can't stand to cook between noon and about 7pm now! Direct sun shining through 50yr old windows is not conducive to heating up the room any more than it already is!
Well, there you have it... I still plan on continuing through the summer with the slow cooker desserts! The first was so rich, that the smallest piece of cake was all that I could deal with in any single sitting...
Be well, be crazy!
