Yes these gooey crockpot brownie cookies are perfect when you need something sweet but don’t want to turn on the oven! With a layer of chocolate chip cookies and another layer of chocolate brownies, you won’t have to choose between the two, and everyone will rave how decadent this slow cooker dessert is! It’s definitely one of our favorite chocolate crockpot recipes. (affiliate links present)

Crockpot Cookies

If you’ve wanted to make a slow cooker dessert, this is for you. With both brownies and cookies together, the things you love, it actually bakes quite well. If you have never made sweets in a slow cooker before you are in for a real treat.

No need to heat up your house when it is a hot summer day anymore. You can use this old fashioned method to not only cook dinner but sweets as well.

Let’s talk a little bit about slow cooking shall we?? First off I have a few different varieties and I love them all. Each one has an occasion to be used like….

  1. This is my favorite 6 quart programmable one with a locking lid so it’s great for bringing to a potluck too.
  2. I prefer not to use liners, but rather just spray olive oil inside before adding my food for easier cleanups.

Let me give you a peek of my pretty thang I bought recently. It goes with my kitchen so I can just leave it out on the countertop all the time. 😉


Crockpot Brownies

If you just want a small batch, you can make our air fryer cookies. BUT if guests are coming over you’ll want a lot more.

  1. Crockpot – I used my 6 qt. slow cooker which is the perfect size
  2. 1 box of brownies – I like this one that comes with fudge sauce
  3. One tub of ready made cookie dough – refrigerated type, I’m all about easy
  4. Chopped walnuts – optional but great
  5. Mini chocolate chips – to make them as gooey and rich as possible
  6. 2 Eggs
  7. 1/4 c. Melted butter

It is easier to get out and clean if you spray the inside with non stick spray first too. Just a little tip you’ll appreciate later. If you’re heading to the store to get a few things I would highly suggest grabbing an extra box of brownies to make our brownie crinkle cookies too. You can also make a batch of homemade brownie mix to save you a bit of money, linked at the top of this post.

Can you make brownies in a slow cooker?

Yes, you can actually “bake” this way. If you haven’t done it yet you are going to be shocked at how well it works too. This easy crockpot brownie dessert can be thrown together once you start cooking dinner and once you’re done eating and have a bit of time to let your food settle this will be done and perfect!

What is a brookie?

It is as you might expect, a cross between a brownie and a cookie! If you just can’t decide which you want to make you can bake both at the same time by layering one batter over the other. I know, sounds hard to believe this is true but it is, and it’s fudgy delicious with every bite.

Can you cook boxed brownies in a slow cooker?

Yes, we will show you how it is done right here. Typically two boxes prepared as directed on the back of the boxes will fit nicely, unless you want to make our brookies with cookie dough underneath and 1 box of brownie dough on top. It takes about 2 hours and they are so fudgy!!

What is the difference between boxed brownie mix and homemade?

That depends on the recipe you are using but typically they are quite similar. Some like Ghirardelli may include mini chocolate chips in the mix so that would be different but you could use either one to make the brookies recipe below.

How long should cookie dough be cooked for in a slow cooker?

In a 6 quart I would use 16 slices or 1 roll to cover the bottom. It will take a few hours to bake. Keep in mind the outer edges will be firmer than the middle. This works better with cookie dough on the bottom and brownie batter on top of it.

This and our slow cooker cobbler with frozen fruit are great for a large because they are cheap and feed a lot. In a larger crowd this one is ideal because it’s so rich you don’t need a big scoop and all of the ingredients you need are pretty inexpensive for a dessert that feeds 10-12 people!

How to Make Brownies in Slow Cooker

The best way to serve these crockpot brownie cookies is to scoop from the middle section out to the outside so you get both the more and less done portions all on one plate, or bowl.

  • In a large bowl whisk together your brownie mix, butter, eggs, chocolate chips and nuts if desired.
  • Now spray the inside of your crockpot with non stick cooking spray.
  • Put 8 slices of your ready made cookie dough on to the bottom of your prepared slow cooker.
  • Then pour the prepared brownie batter on top. Smooth out evenly inside your Crock pot.
  • Cover and cook for 2 hours cooking time. Cook on high.
  • Scoop from the middle out to the edge to get the gooey in the center + crispier outside in every bite.
    • Top with ice cream, whipped cream and/or hot fudge, and make sure to serve warm for best results.

On the outside the slow cooker brookie is the perfect cakey texture, and in the middle it’s the ooey gooey slightly undercooked brownie that is my favorite.

When you decide you cannot get enough and want to try it another way, we have it! I know, we did it again with these air fryer brownies the other day. It’s just fun to make your favorites a bit differently.

If you’re looking for another great slow cooker dessert I cannot recommend this crockpot apple crisp enough!! Made with fresh apples and just a few other ingredients it’s a yummy after dinner treat or serve it on Christmas morning too.

My brownie batter came out way too dry as written. I essentially had to go back to the box instructions and fill in the missing liquids (oil & water in my case), so basically I followed my box instructions + 1/4 cup melted butter because I had already added it as that point.

I’m going to make today looks amazing! Is it better to use a liner ? (Plastic) or parchment paper?

I don't ever use plastic, parchment would work well I think

I just made this, and added cinnamon toast crunch layered on the top. I’m afraid this won’t last long.
