Slow Cooker Peach Cobbler

And now you don’t even have to turn on your oven!

When it comes to spring and summertime desserts, we’re huge fans of using seasonal fruit (when possible) and turning it into a delicious pie, crisp or cobbler. However, the season for such desserts is usually that of warmer (read: HOT) temperature, so using the oven to create such yummy confections isn’t actually that ideal…so we decided to ignore the oven all together when it came to coming up with a new cobbler recipe.

Peach desserts are definitely some of our favorites, so we decided to use them as a base for this recipe. We give you: slow cooker peach cobbler. This dish has only five essential ingredients and is absolutely delectable. Prep your peaches – using fresh when possible, but frozen or canned are just as yummy! – plop ‘em in the slow cooker, then cover them up with a box of yellow cake mix and some butter. The juices thicken and caramelize into perfection, and you’re left with a golden brown topping that is INSANELY good. It’s easy and wonderful and what are you waiting for?! Try it out and see how great it is for yourself!
