For the most part, we turn to slow cookers as tools when we don’t have a lot of time in the kitchen. Arguably, their biggest advantage is the way that you can set a meal going before you leave for work and come home to a fully cooked meal when your day is done. That’s an amazing way to save time, especially when your weeknights are extremely busy.
But, that’s not what we’re interested in today. Instead, we’re looking a more unusual use of the slow cooker, which is dessert preparation. A slow cooker may not be your first choice when it comes to making dessert but it is a good tool simply because it lets you make dessert without having to worry or stress too much. At the same time, the slow and moist nature of slow cooking means that you can make some desserts that simply wouldn’t be as good if created any other way.
