Slow Cooking Thursday

I apologize for posting this so late, but guess what? I actually got to sleep in today, for the first time in more than a year YAY. *snicker*

Mr Linky's usual linkies are not working, so we have to use Image Linkies, all you do is click on the green "Mr Linky" and it will open up the list for you to add your name to.



Don't forget to add your name to Mr Linky and a link back to your SCT post so others can come by and see your recipe too.

As always, share your slow cooking recipes but if you REALLY REALLY don't have one and still want to participate, then you can share any kind of recipe.

Chocolate, in the crockpot, oh yum! Looks good.

Never would have thought you could make this in the crockpot. I have made this in a bundt pan and used Bailey's instead of Kahlua...

Super good!

I've never tried to make cake in a slow cooker... but now I'm curious to try!

Melonie said...

Can this be made without any alcohol? What would be a good substitute for that?

Ya know, I've always wondered, is it safe for kids to eat this stuff? I've never dared to make stuff with alcohol or beer in it because my kids always eat what we eat.

Got my link added :)

Nicole said...

This was amazing! I made it for party Saturday night! Everyone loved it! I loved that it could be served warm without too much timing stress!
I just used a fudge cake and of course was out of Kahlua so i used Starbucks liquor - but i liked someones idea of baileys! Can;t wait to have another occasion to make this! Yeah!!
