Ingredients

  • 3/4 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cups butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • .3 oz bottle red food coloring
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons baking cocoa
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 8 oz pkg cream cheese, softened for icing
  • 3 tablespoons butter for icing
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar for icing
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt for icing
  • pecans, optional

Instructions

  • Put your chocolate chips and 3/4 cups butter in a microwave safe bowl and melt in microwave (I heated it for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between)
  • If your microwave safe bowl isn't large enough, pour into a large bowl and stir in your sugar
  • Whisk in 2 eggs and 3 egg whites one at a time
  • Mix in your flour, food coloring, vanilla, baking cocoa, salt and baking powder
  • Spoon into a greased 6-quart slow cooker (I used Sir Hamilton, my 6-quart Hamilton Beach Programmable Insulated Slow Cooker) and spread out evenly 
  • Place a couple of paper towels under the lid of your slow cooker, cover and cook on low for 2 1/2-3 hours, when you stick a toothpick in the middle, a few crumbs will stick to it when it comes out
  • Remove the lid and let it cool while you make your icing
  • Beat together your cream cheese and butter until mostly smooth
  • Stir in your powdered sugar and salt
  • Mix in your vanilla completely
  • Using a spoon, serve on a plate with a dollop of icing on top and a sprinkling of pecans, if desired

Notes

  • When you make this recipe, it will look great until you take the lid off. Once it starts to cool, it falls. Don't worry! It is perfect for spooning out to serve. It has a wonderful texture and still looks good when you serve it. 
  • In case you are wondering, "Why the paper towels?", they catch any moisture that might drip from the lid and keep it off of your lovely brownies. 
  • As with any of our recipes, calorie counts and nutritional information varies greatly depending on which products you choose to use when cooking this dish.
  • All slow cookers cook differently, so cooking times are always a basic guideline and should always be tested first in your own slow cooker and time adjusted as needed.
