Yes. We're putting flour and sugar in the slow cooker and mixing in some peanut butter and chocolate. Layering the mini Reese's on top is just a huge bonus. Let's make it a thing?
Are you asking yourself "why are we making a cake in the slow cooker?" Especially when we still have to do all the mixer-things first?
Well, let's just say that this totally works when you're cooking for a crowd. Like, game-day night at your crib? Or Thanksgiving dinner? It works. It frees up the oven, it takes longer to bake and you are not at all responsible for cutting it up all pretty and precise. Slide a spoon in the slow cooker and let everyone scoop out a piece. Ice cream on the side? Why not!
Also? You should really get to know your slow cooker a bit before you make this. In my slow cooker, this cake takes exactly 2 hours and 15 minutes on high. My mom's slow cooker wanted a few extra minutes. Like, 20 of 'em. Thus, if you are going to make this for guests, please give it a trial run first and see how much time you will need exactly to get it all done and ready to go when you need it.
Oh, and can I give a helpful hint? If you are going to do this, please please please don't skip the toppings! It's too good — you gotta have it!
