Let’s keep the Slow Cookin’ Summer Series going with this recipe from Candi from A Day in Candiland. Here’s her recipe:
These cheesecakes are super easy, and who doesn’t love to use their crockpot and “Nutella.” I know what you are saying, Yum. It’s a win-win, right? This recipe takes about 20 minutes to prepare and then put it in the slow-cooker and a few hours later you just need to refrigerate and it’s done. I also used another of my favorites and that is mason jars. I love the fact that each person gets their own treat and you can decorate the jars if you really want to impress your friends.
