These Slow Cooker Hot Fudge Brownies are FOUR ingredients and absolutely amazing. I will not judge you if you eat them STRAIGHT from the crock pot.

You guys!! Hayley, author of the hilariously funny and amazingly delicious blog, The Domestic Rebel, wrote a cook book! You guys. Hayley is kind of killing it. She already sold out on QVC and her book is flying off the shelves so fast that they already signed her to a second book! A. Second. Book.

Reader Review

Made for dessert tonight! Was simple to put together and OMG DELISH!!! Doubled the recipe, 3.5 hours on High. Will definitely make this again.

But let’s just talk about her first book, Out of the Box Desserts, for a second. It is so good! There are so many amazing desserts in there that all start with a box mix. They are easy, they are ingenious, and they are totally delicious!

In front of the Crock Pot, the ingredients for the Slow Cooker Hot Fudge Brownies are two eggs, Smucker's Hot Fudge, Betty Crocker's Fudge, two eggs, and oil.

I made Hayley’s Slow Cooker Hot Fudge Brownies, and they knocked my socks off. They come together with just FOUR ingredients (plus some water). You can literally throw them together in under five minutes and then serve them up piping hot and warm at the end of a dinner party topped with some ice cream. Your guests will be totally blown away and you don’t even have to tell them that all the magic started with a box mix.

Seriously. I challenge you to find an easier more decadent chocolatey dessert to woo people with. It cannot be found.

Please note that all slow cookers are a little different. Hayley suggested that you cook this on HIGH for 3 to 3 1/2 hours. That was a little too long for my slow cooker that loves to be the consistent over achiever and cook things faster. We, as in my slow cooker and I, felt a little better about 2 to 2 1/2 hours. Just something to keep in mind. Also something to keep in mind? I won’t judge if you eat this strait from the slow cooker.

Slow Cooker Hot Fudge Brownies

(tap # to scale)

Ingredients

  • 1 box fudge brownie mix
  • 2/3 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup hot water
  • 1 12 ounce jar hot fudge sauce

Instructions

  • Grease a large slow cooker very liberally with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, combine the brownie mix, oil, 1/4 cup water, and eggs until combined. Pour into the prepared slow cooker.
  • Whisk together the hot fudge sauce and hot water. (Feel free to use the same bowl you mixed the brownie mix in without cleaning it out). Pour over the brownie batter. Top with the lid and cook on HIGH for 2 to 2 1/2 hours.
  • The brownies will be gooey in the center at the end of cooking (though the edges should be fully set). Scoop out and serve with a spoon and top with ice cream.

    Any idea if you could use this with a chocolate fudge cake mix instead is specifically a brownie mix? Looks delicious!

    • Lisa Longley says

      I haven’t tried that, but I think it would work fine!

  2. sally foley says

    I have a rectangular crockpot about the size of a 13×9…..would this work in it? Also if it does what time do you think it would be for high and for low

    • Lisa Longley says

      I’m sorry, Sally, I would have to test it to know for sure! If I were trying, I would use the same timing.

  3. Denise Brace says

    I dont have fudge, I do have Chocolate syrup or Caramel sundae sauce; will this work?

    • Lisa Longley says

      Yes! I have made it with caramel sauce (you can see that recipe here), it’s delicious!

  4. Barbara says

    I’ve been accused of having dark chocolate hips!!!

    In any case, without a slow cooker, how would you guide one to bake this delicious recipe?

    • Lisa Longley says

      I’m sorry, Barbara, I have only made this recipe in the slow cooker. If I were going to test it, I would pour it into a 9 by 13 inch pan and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes on the first attempt.
