rocky road cakeI attended a wedding shower this past weekend where the bride-to-be got a crock pot. Everyone raved about how frequently they use theirs and started throwing out their favorite recipes and methods of using it. When I said I make a mean chocolate cake in mine, they were all shocked.

It seems that while plenty of people are crock-pot crazy many never consider what incredible desserts can made in one. It's a great way to save oven space during a meal, and the range of sweet treats you can make in one is amazing. Here are seven sinfully delicious crock pot dessert recipes to try.
