This easy to make Slow Cooker Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake makes a wonderful picnic or potluck dessert. Since it cooks in the crockpot there’s no need to heat up the kitchen.
Desserts have become one of my favorite things to make in the slow cooker and they are especially convenient for the hot months of the year… When we have some scorching hot days, and it doesn’t do any good to turn the oven on when the air conditioner is already fighting against 90-degree heat outside.
