I absolutely LOVE marble brownies. However, there never seems to be enough “marble” for me in the box mixes, so I thought I would give it a try on my own…and in my crock pot. The result? These ah-mazing Crock Pot Marble Brownies!

Like I said, I love marble brownies…and these are awesome! Michael is not a big sweets person…he once had prime rib as his dessert at an event I organized for my former employer…so when he goes back for seconds on a dessert, I know that it is a keeper!
Crock Pot Marble Brownies
I was so delighted with the outcome of these Crock Pot Marble Brownies. They are super moist and thinness of the brownies let you get the perfect combination of brownie and “marble” in each bite!
A Few Notes…
- The darker coloring of the “marble” part of the brownie is from me using pure vanilla extract.
- I did NOT use paper towels under the lid for this recipe. I tried that and it did not work well with the moisture level in a brownie batter. It is different than cake batter.
- Why use my crock pot? I tried this in my crock pot and in the oven. I, personally, liked the crock pot version must better. Many people also come here to find different ways to use their crock pots, so we try a variety of recipes in our crock pots, and this is one. Also, if you are traveling, this is a great way to make a yummy brownie when you don’t have an oven available.
- I used my 9 x13 casserole slow cooker made by Crock Pot for this recipe. The 9×13 insert works perfectly for this recipe. If you do not have one yet, then I would recommend using a 6 quart slow cooker so that the batter can spread out.
- 1 18.3 oz brownie mix prepared
- 8 oz cream cheese
- 1 egg

- 1 t vanilla extract
Spray your crock pot with cooking spray
Pour your prepared brownie mix into your crock pot
In a bowl, mix together your cream cheese, egg, sugar and vanilla until smooth
Pour cream cheese mixture in strips the length of your crock pot
Take a knife to create your swirl/marble

Take lid off briefly every 45 minutes to one and half hours to wipe off condensation, the timing depends on how quickly the condensation collects on your lid
Once your brownies are set, remove lid and let cool.
