Mississippi Mud Slow Cooker Cake is a rich brownie and chocolaty sauce cooked together in your slow cooker. A perfect dessert for your chocolate lovers!
I served this luscious dessert for guests when I had my wonderful Cheese & Tequila tasting event a few weeks ago.
I had a friend who couldn’t wait for this recipe…
Originally I was going to share this recipe here, but because slow cooker (crockpot) recipes are sort of my niche over at Hip Homeschool Moms, I shared it over there.
