Whisk together a creamy pumpkin soup with canned pumpkin, chicken or vegetable broth, spices, and a touch of heavy cream. Let it cook in the crock pot until it's velvety and ready to serve.
Make caramel apples in your crock pot by melting caramel candies with a bit of milk. Dip apples in the warm caramel for a delightful fall treat.
Make a cozy apple crisp dessert by layering sliced apples with a crumbly topping made from oats, brown sugar, and spices. Cook until the apples are tender, and the topping is golden.
