15 Slow-Cooker Desserts That Are Perfect for Summer

Who says that slow cooking is just for the winter?

These desserts are ‘baked’ to perfection.

Having a perpetual sweet tooth can be a curse — not only because of the inevitable growth of your midsection, but also because there are times of the year when baking is the last thing we can muster up the energy to do. In the peak of summer, the thought of turning on the oven or even the stovetop is enough to make you melt — there is only so much we can ask our AC units to accomplish.
