Crock Pot Mixed Berry Cobbler
Crock Pot Mixed Berry Cobbler recipe is perfect for the holidays and creates a deeply flavorful dessert with very little prep time!
It’s no secret that I pink fuzzy heart my slow cooker (crock pot..whatever you want to call it). My favorite thing to do with them that I always forget I can do is “bake” in them. I love whipping up desserts in my slow cooker.
One of the most popular recipes on my blog is my Crock Pot Peach Cobbler. It really is no surprise that this is a favorite because, hello, PEACHES…and also, who doesn’t love a dessert that can just be thrown into a crock pot and it cooks itself while you do other things? It’s like magic.
I made it a priority to come up with another killer fruit cobbler recipe to share. I normally think “summer” when I think of fruit cobblers, but most of us know these are just awesome and totally fitting for holiday desserts. Crock pots are the best when you have a zillion things coming in and out of the oven. A true lifesaver…
