      Truthfully, I never thought about desserts in a crock pot. Good one! Voted-up/rated.

      Dear Maddie,

      I am one of those men who like to cook and this is a very practical recipe, my friend. This is my first reading of your hubs and I can't help but wonder why I didn't do it sooner.

      @ jonaitis:

      I haven't tested these with applesauce... these are my reduced-fat versions of more calorie-laden recipes. I'm hesitant to say that that the applesauce-for-oil substitution will for sure work in a crockpot as well as it works in baking, but if you try it, do let me know, because I'd love to find out I was wrong. ;)

      Substitutions are fine, but this is a rare treat, and all that butter and sugar will just plain make you smile. Moderation will provide the key to enjoying anything responsibly.

      My kids have chased me around the house for the last one of those Cinnammon Rolls!

      Respectfully, Nicholas

      Thanks Maddie,

      Everything sounds delicious. So when do we need to get there? Wow I could eat myself silly! Well, I guess I don't have to eat to accomplish that. Thanks. Thumbs up. ~ eddie

      These sound delicious--can you substitute applesauce for the oil? I do that when I make cakes from mixes and they turn out great and are a bit healthier.

      Wow, Nicholas, those all sound great! Thanks for sharing them. The first one, you could substitute fat-free, sugar-free chocolate pudding and fat-free, sugar-free coolwhip to bring down the calories. The cinnamon rolls... whew... I got nothing! ;)

      Hi Maddie,

      I remember three rich desserts from my early youth.

      1. Refrigerator Dessert # 1

      Ingredients: Ladyfingers, Chocolate Pudding, Sweet Whipped cream.

      Directions: Layer each ingredient one after the other and repeat, in a large salad bowl about 7 to 10 layers total or until bowl is full. Top off with Sweet Whipped Cream.

      Refrigerate overnight covered in Saran wrap or clear plastic wrap. Serve!

      2. Refrigerator Dessert # 2

      Ingredients and Directions: Thin chocolate wafers, coated on each side with whipped cream, and set into a bread pan flat sides together in a row with whipped cream between each wafer, and coat the entire roll of wafers with whipped cream and place in refrigerator ovenight. Serve!

      3. Cinnamon Rolls. Buy the three-loaf pack of Bridgeford Frozen Bread dough.

      Thaw as many loaves as you want. Thaw each loaf by placing on a dinner plate dusted with flour to avoid sticking as it warms on your kitchen counter for 1 to 1-1/2 hours.

      Flour generously each loaf, and roll the loaf with a wooden kitchen roller and flour all surfaces generously to avoid sticking, roll dough to a thicknness of 1/8-inch.

      Melt 1/4 pound of real butter, and spread evenly over the dough, spread 1 to 1-1/2 cup of white granulated sugar evenly over the buttered dough, and dust with as much cinnammon as you need to cover the sugar with a nice even layer of cinnammon. Roll dough into a circle from the wide side to the other wide side, about 4 four layers when rolled up.

      Cut dough across the roll, to form a 1-1/2-inch tall roll. Pour an entire bottle of Karo Corn Syrup, (the clear kind), into a square glass baking dish. Place the sliced rolls into the syrup and arrange snugly to fill the pan.

      OPTION: If you want you can allow the rolls to rise a bit before you bake, or not.

      Bake at 325-degrees for 20~25 mnutes or whatever your oven requires, until tops are nicely browned and bottom is gooey and sticky. Carefully remove from oven, ( hot syrup can burn severely ) and allow to cool for at least 15~20 minutes. Serve with your favorite cold or warm beverage. Definitely a treat for breakfast or after dinner. You can reheat for 15 seconds in the mcrowave for next day's consumption. Enjoy!

      Respectfully, Nicholas

      OK -- there goes my diet. I'm going to try a couple of these, especially the caramel-apple crisp since apples are in season right now. Fun hub with some yummy recipes.
