West Bend 6-qt. Oval Versatility Slow Cooker

Imagine having all your meals ready when you come home each day! This 6-quart cooking pot goes from heating/serving to stovetop, oven, refrigerator, freezer or dishwasher. It holds a whole chicken, ham or roast and offers low, medium and high settings for roasting or slow cooking, plus a keep warm setting for serving. The durable cooking pot has a premium nonstick (non-teflon) interior and stainless steel handles; a glass cover allows easy viewing as sauces simmer and meats sizzle. The handy lift-out rack lets you remove roasts and meat with ease. Cooking pot, cover and rack are all dishwasher-safe. Base is heat-resistant.

Pour in 4 cups of hot water and turn on to HIGH.

In a seperate bowl, combine brownie mix, 1/2 cup of water, oil and egg; mix well. Stir in the chocolate chips and walnuts.

Butter and dust with sugar a 2-quart soufflé dish that fits in the slow-cooker. Pour the brownie batter into the soufflé dish. Push the caramels half way into the brownie mix, do not bury completely in the brownie mix. Wrap the dish in a double thickness of foil. Tie with a string to use as a handle for lowering and raising out of the crockpot.

Cover and cook on high for 4.5 hours. Remove the dish and let set for 30 minutes before serving. Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream with chocolate hot fudge sauce.
