18 Things You Didn’t Know Your Slow Cooker Could Make

The slow cooker is all the rage these days (thank you, Pinterest!). I am all about putting my kitchen appliances to work, but I haven’t made much more than the usual pot roasts, soups and pulled meats. I did a little research and found some atypical slow cooker recipes worthy of sharing. Some made sense, but some just blew my mind – I mean, Chex Mix in the slow cooker?? Crazy.

I knew Natalie was a slow cooker savant after this post but thanks so much to her for further widening our slow cooker horizons – truly, I had no idea!  I can’t wait to try the Artisan Bread and Chai Tea Concentrate.  Any of these outside-the-box recipes catch your eye?

P.S. You also REALLY should check out Natalie’s Homemade Reese’s Peanut Butter Pumpkins (with No Refined Sugar).
