I’ve heard of all kinds of unusual foods being cooked in slow cookers that had me intrigued. We all know the usual meals that can be cooked in slow cookers: soups, pot roast, casseroles, etc. but have you heard of cookies? I’m all about trying new things in the name of dessert so I decided to give this idea a try. Seriously, being able to put it all together and walking away to do other things while it cooks is such an amazing concept! Whoever invented this appliance is a true genius.
Well….. It worked! I actually made a chocolate chip cookie in my slow cooker. It was easy, it tasted good, and it was soft. You all know I am a marshmallow fanatic so I added my own special do
se of marshmallows to the recipe. I’m pretty all kinds of other cookie recipes would work too. Might just have to try them out haha.
