Crock-Pot® Crock-Squad Party Recipes

This scrumptious crock pot dessert is made by filling easy, homemade taco cups with slow cooked summer fruit, vanilla ice cream and caramel syrup!

Crock Pot Dessert Fruit Taco Cups

Alright y’all, it’s time for a moment of honesty here, I’m totally obsessed with Crock-­Pot® Slow Cookers! Yes, it’s true, I am now the proud owner of SIX Crock-­Pot® Slow Cookers! I literally own a Crock-­Pot® Slow Cooker from the 80’s, a Crock-­Pot® Slow Cooker from the 90’s and now four Crock-­Pot® Slow Cookers from this decade, and no, I’m not giving any of them up, no matter how many times my boyfriend tells me it’s ridiculous to have so many Crock-­Pot® Slow Cookers! 😉

For every party I throw, I cook up at least one, usually three or four recipes in my Crock-­Pot. Slow cooking for parties allows me to prep everything the night before, or the morning of the party, then let the Slow Cooker do all of the work while I enjoy the party!

My Superbowl party is the perfect example of this. Each year, I prep 4-5 Crock-­Pots  the night before with different meats, slow cook them overnight, then set up a taco bar for the party, which means people can eat whenever they would like and I get to watch the game!

Nectarine Fig Burrata Bruschetta

Nectarine Fig Burrata Bruschetta Recipe

Over the years, I’ve heard people mention the 5 Love Languages. I went to look them up and I found Burrata nowhere on the list, so I’m pretty sure they made a mistake 😉

Just in case anyone was wondering (or interested – I am single after all – lol) my 5 love languages go something like this:

  1. Coffee
  2. Burrata
  3. Tacos
  4. Beer
  5. Pizza

I believe my next book will be entitled “The 5 Love Languages of a Foodie” haha!
