Did you know you could make a fudgy brownie with peanut butter chips, in a crockpot, in under 3 hours? I didn’t! These crockpot brownies are the perfect ending to a very long day and just taking a bite of the gooey, gooey chocolate center is everything.
It’s safe to say that these peanut butter brownies are the best. I crave these chocolatey brownies day in and day out!
Before, it used to be just a thought or craving but now, knowing that I can have them cooking in my slow cooker while I have other things taking my attention, is a total dream come true.
In fact, walking through the front door and being greeted by nice, homemade brownies is probably one of the biggest highlights of the day.
I don’t know why it took me so long to try to make this dessert this way. You get these nice crispy edges with a melted, chewy center so it’s perfect if you have multiple people eating them and they like different parts of the brownie.
No more fighting for that last corner!
The only hard part about this entire recipe is trying to stop yourself from eating more than one. I dare you to try…I haven’t been able to accomplish it yet.

Crockpot Brownies With Peanut Butter Chips
The best part about this brownie recipe is that your slow cooker takes charge and does all the nitty-gritty work for you. You just have to add in a few simple ingredients and watch a batch of brownies come together right in front of your eyes!
Here are the ingredients you will need to make fudgy brownies:
- Melted butter
- Granulated sugar
- Packed brown sugar
- Unsweetened cocoa powder
- All-purpose flour
- Large eggs
- Vanilla extract
- Reese’s peanut butter chips
How To Make Peanut Butter Brownies In The Crockpot
Before you start adding ingredients into the crockpot, make sure to line your slow cooker with a piece of parchment paper and generously add some non-stick spray. If not, there’s a possibility your brownies will stick or you may have some burnt parts.
In a large bowl, whisk together the melted butter, both sugars, cocoa powder, flour, eggs, vanilla, and salt until it’s all completely smooth.
Gently fold in the peanut butter chips and pour the brownie batter into the prepped slow cooker.
Cover and cook on LOW for 2 ½ – 3 hours or until the brownie is set around the edges and slightly gooey in the center.
- Not a fan of peanut butter? Just swap out the peanut butter chips for some regular chocolate chips or just completely leave it out all-together.
- Don’t leave the brownie in the crockpot. The slow cooker stays hot and will continue cooking the outer edges of the brownie, and you might wind up burning the edges.
- Add on more time if you use a smaller slow cooker. This brownie recipe was made in a 7 quart Crock-Pot and has more of a surface area to cook the peanut butter brownie. You will have less surface space to cook the brownie in smaller sized ones and the middle won’t cook properly.
How To Warm Up A Brownie
If you left the brownies alone for too long and now they’re a little too cooled for your taste, it’s okay!
Place the brownie on a microwave-safe plate and place it in the microwave. Leave it in there for about 15 seconds until it is warmed up.
What To Serve With Fudgy Brownies
As soon as these brownies were done cooking, I most definitely burned my mouth with a small corner piece (my favorite) but they were just too delicious-looking to resist!
I (tried) to not eat them all so I can enjoy them the way I usually would. Whenever I make these crockpot brownies with peanut butter chips, I love to serve them up with:
- Ice cream- I tried it with vanilla, mint, and coffee-flavored ice cream and it was amazing!
- Fudge sauce- I mean, it doesn’t have enough chocolate right?
- Bananas- Brownie banana split anyone?
Or, maybe I’ll just eat them just like that because I don’t want to wait!
They’re chocolate peanut butter brownies. Can you blame me?
