Salted Caramel Cobbler in the Slow Cooker

Now that I’ve started this Slow Cooker Dessert Series,  I’ve of course been trying to come up with ideas for new recipes.  When I think dessert, my mind quickly goes to chocolate.  But this time I wanted something different.

I could have used fruit to make a dessert (I’ve got a couple of cans of cherries in the pantry that I can’t wait to use!), but one of my kids doesn’t like fruit.  (What kind of kid loves kale, cauliflower and carrots but hates fruit?)

And that’s how this Salted Caramel Cobbler in the slow cooker came into being.

Salted Caramel Cobbler in the Slow Cooker easy dessert

 

It’s basically the same recipe as Chocolate Cobbler in the Slow Cooker, but without the cocoa.  I also swapped out some of the white sugar for brown sugar to make it more caramel-like.  And a little salt on caramel is always a good thing.

This cobbler turns out warm and gooey with lots of caramel sauce.  This is a sweet dessert.  It’s nearly impossible to have a caramel dessert without it being very sweet.  The bit of salt balances the sweet though.

It would be great topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.  Ice cream can help cut the richness of dessert, as crazy as that sounds.  It works like a glass of milk with brownies, only more delicious.  Or this could just be me justifying eating more ice cream.

Here’s what you’ll need to make it:

All of the ingredients are very basic.  I’m sure you have them all in the pantry right now.

  1. This looks yummy tiffany!

    What size crockpot did you use?

  2. I am trying this tonight!

    • This was my first slow cooker dessert and it was perfect: all the ingredients are pantry staples, you can mix it up in just a few minutes…literally, and it was absolutely delicious. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the great recipe. I can’t wait to see what you come up with next week!
      I forgot to mention cleanup was a breeze too. I sprayed my 3 qt crock pot with Bakers Joy and nothing suck to it.

  3. Michelle says:

    Did you cook it on high or low setting? It sounds amazingly delicious!!!!!

  4. It was all mush…. With a very artificial taste… Never again

    • BritishAmerican says:

      Did you maybe stir it after adding the water when you’re not supposed to?

      I made it and it turned out very tasty. I will make it again.

  5. I wonder how that would work out if I put a layer of apples under the caramel?

  6. Michelle says:

    Instead of spraying the inside, can you use a slow cooker liner?

  7. I wonder how it would be with milk or almond milk instead of water.

  8. This looks and sounds delicious! Did you use salted or unsalted butter? The recipe says butter but the picture is salted butter?! Thanks

  9. would this work if I doubled it?

  10. If I were to add apples to this recipe, when should I do so?

    And should I use Granny Smith or red apples?
