Slow Cooker Dessert Recipe: Black Forest Cherry Cobbler

Updated on June 19, 2010

Did you know that your slow cooker is a terrific tool for creating delicious dessert recipes? Many people use their slow cookers on a regular basis to cook stew, soup, roast beef, and other main dishes, but don't stop and think about how easy it is to make sweet treats with this type of small appliance.

There are many simple dessert recipes that you can create in your slow cooker. Instead of heating up your kitchen by baking a dessert in your oven, take out your slow cooker and try this easy Black Forest Cherry Cobbler recipe the next time you want to create a tasty homemade dessert for your family or friends!

Black Forest Cherry Cobbler Recipe (Slow Cooker)



Place the cake mix in a mixing bowl and pour in the melted butter. Stir until a crumbly mixture forms. Put the cherry pie filling in your slow cooker.

Add the cake mix and butter mixture to the slow cooker, spreading out over the pie filling so that it is fairly evening. Sprinkle the walnuts over the cake mix layer. Put the lid on the crock pot and cook on the low setting for four hours or on the high setting for two hours.

This tasty dessert recipe can be served warm or chilled. Simply scoop out portions of the dessert with a spoon and serve on saucers or in small bowls.

If you want to enjoy your Black Forest Cherry Cobbler warm, it's a good idea to let it cool for 20 or 30 minutes before serving. It will be less runny if you do this rather than serving it as soon as you turn off the crock pot.

Serving Suggestions

This dessert dish tastes great by itself or topped with whipped cream and a maraschino cherry (or two!). It is also delicious served alongside a scoop of vanilla, cherry vanilla, or chocolate ice cream. If you want an extra-chocolaty treat, sprinkle warm chocolate syrup on top of the prepared dessert.

Recipe Variations

Here are a few suggestions to vary the recipe:

  • Consider substituting chopped walnuts or pecans for the walnuts.
  • Mix the nuts with ½ cup of shredded coconut before adding them to the slow cooker
  • Use a yellow cake mix instead of a chocolate cake mix if you prefer traditional cherry cobbler.
  • Try blueberry pie filling instead of cherry pie filling with either a chocolate or yellow cake mix.
