No matter what you’re planning on making, slow cookers are an invaluable part of any kitchen. If you’re feeling lazy and want to have dinner ready when you get home from work, just throw a bunch of vegetables and ground meat into it before you leave the house. When you get home, you should have a delicious stew that’ll be good to eat for days on end. Still, slow cookers can also be used to make all kinds of delicious desserts.
Though you may have already tried to make some kind of delicious cobbler in your slow cooker, you can also use them for more traditional baked goods as well. Beyond cobblers, cakes and pies, you can even use your slow cooker to make homemade chocolate chip cookies as well. Still, making them individually can be a little tricky… so why not make one enormous cookie instead? That’s right, today we’re making a massive chocolate chip cookie in your slow cooker that tastes so chewy and delicious. So let’s get started.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 stick of butter, softened to room temperature
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 1/2 cup of brown sugar
- 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips
- 1 large egg
- 1 1/2 cups of flour
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla
- 1 teaspoon of baking soda
- pinch of salt
- parchment paper
Here’s what you do:
1. First, get out some parchment paper and slice a sheet of it into two four to five inch strips of parchment paper. Use them to line the bottom of your slow cooker in a cross formation, with extra paper hanging out of the edges of the slow cooker. In the meantime, get out a mixing bowl and add your butter and sugars. Beat them together with an electric mixer until they turn light and fluffy, for about two minutes. Gradually add in your egg and vanilla as well.
2. With the wet ingredients mixed, add your flour, baking soda and salt and start stirring them together until everything combines. Fold in your chocolate chips as well. When everything is combined, pour the cookie dough into the bottom of the slow cooker and smooth the top of it down.
3. When everything is in place, cover the slow cooker and let it all cook on high for two and a half to three hours, or for five to six hours on low.
4. After enough time has passed, open the slow cooker and check to make sure the cookie is almost cooked all the way through with a slightly soft center. You can keep the cookie warm for up to three hours. When you’re ready, use the extra paper hanging out the edges to gently pull the cookie out and place it on a cooling rack. When it’s cool enough, carve it up and serve!
As you can see, making the actual batter is incredibly easy—all you have to do is combine the ingredients and pour them into your slow cooker. Although it does make one giant cookie, it can easily be cut into little pieces and stored that way. On the other hand, it’s also perfect for any parties you may be attending! As always, have fun with this recipe and let us know how it all turns out.
