Filled with old-fashioned goodness, this dessert works well in a slow cooker. Orange zest and chocolate chips give it extra pizzazz.
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar (I didn’t have any and used brown sugar instead)
1/4 cup plus 3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk (I used almond milk)
3 tbsp butter, melted
1 tbsp grated orange zest
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 2/3 cups hot water
In a medium bowl, mix together flour, granulated sugar, 3 tbsp cocoa, baking powder and salt. Stir n milk, butter, orange zest and chocolate chips. Turn into 3 1/2 quart electric slow cooker.
Cover and cook on high setting for 1 3/4 hrs-2 hrs. Do not cook on low setting for a longer time.
