A Year of Slow Cooking

Halloween Slow Cooker Recipes

Happy Halloween! Put your slow cooker to good use this weekend to keep all the goblins in your life happy and well-fed.

 Witch's Brew. Green, slimy, sweet, and sour. The star anise look like tiny little spiders--fun!


 Caramel Apples. YUM. I made these for the first time on my daughter's 7th birthday. Now she's 10, and her LITTLE sister is 7. I'm not okay with this.


 Autumn Sausage Casserole. A bowl full of fall. Great dinner to fill the belly before heading out for the night.


 Chocolate and Marshmallow Fondue. Skip the waxy supermarket Halloween candy and make the good stuff.


 Jamaican Pumpkin Soup. A rich, velvety, creamy soup-- restaurant quality and super delicious. You decide the amount of cream to add at the table.


 Mulled Wine. Warm up after a chilly night out with a hot mug of mulled wine. The perfect by-the-fire adult drink.


 
 Pizza Soup. The kids have requested this for dinner this Halloween--liquid pizza. If you normally order pizza delivery before heading out,  make this instead to satisfy your pepperoni craving.


 Pumpkin Spice Latte. The one and only!



 Roasted Pumpkin Seeds in the Slow Cooker. Yes, you can roast pumpkin seeds in the crockpot. But that doesn't mean you should. It's kind of a pain.


 
Orange Glazed Beets. Food that bleeds! Fantastic for Halloween--- if you're a beet fan, you'll like these an awful lot. If you aren't a beet fan, you probably never will be. That's okay. I'm not either.


Stewed Tomatoes. They look like baby animal hearts, which is great for a spooky dinner, but taste A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. ---even if you aren't a big tomato fan.


Have a wonderful Halloween weekend, and enjoy your trick-or-treating! Viva la Crocktober!

Great list for Halloween! The witches brew sounds especially yummy, I meant to make it last year but forgot!

The Autumn Sausage Casserole remains one of our favorites of all your recipes, Stephanie!

These sound great--especially the mulled wine lol! And this got me going through your archives--I now have a lot of crockpot recipes I am going to be trying over the next couple of weeks. Best of all was how much fun it was to read them--I love your writing style!

great list of foods. Have you ever tried pumpkin risotto in the crockpot? I know you've done risotto. Just wondering how to modify it for a Thanksgiving time frame dinner.

I made jambalaya in the crockpot tonight but my rice went all mushy... any tips? Is converted/parboiled rice the best rice to use in the crock?

Saw your one year on Pinterest and followed the link. You are amazing! What a collection for Halloween too. You definitely rank queen of the cooker!

Creative ideas! Never thought about doing pumpkin seeds in the slow cooker. I've tried your pumpkin spice latte recipe - awesome!! I'm already using my slow cooker for vegetarian chili for Halloween but will have to do Witch's brew next year - or get another slow cooker!

I had no idea you could do pumpkin seeds in a crockpot. It kinda sucks that it's a pain and probably not worth the effort, but still good to know!

This ALL looks so delicous. I can't wait to try these recipes.
