I’m thrilled to be able to share this recipe for chocolate cherry crockpot brownies with you. One of my former co-workers is a member of my crockpot recipes group on Facebook and posted a chocolate cherry dump cake recipe. I’ve seen a ton of these toss and go recipes for cakes but I haven’t seen any for brownies. I thought I would give it try with a box of brownie mix and I’m so glad I did. This chocolate cherry crockpot dessert was a hit at my house. My son who is super picky devoured it.
Fair warning, this recipe is warm and gooey. Although you are using brownie mix it’s more like the consistency of a spoon cake, not actual brownies. You can serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a little whipped cream.
This recipe is pretty simple but I do want to add that if you melt the butter and mix it with the brownie mix first that your chocolate cherry brownies will come out much more even. I’ve noticed with some dump and go dessert recipes (both in the oven and in the crockpot) that they come out a little uneven. Melting your butter in the microwave and then mixing it with the brownie mix will make a huge difference.
If you are a fan of chocolate and cherries, you will love this recipe! Did I mention that no only is this recipe delicious and easy but you only need three ingredients?
Why should I make chocolate cherry brownies in the crockpot?

It’s so delicious because it is served warm and gooey. They go great with a scoop of ice cream or a little whipped cream.
