What Are the Best Desserts to Make in a Slow Cooker?

Good Questions

Q: So my friends and I had the brilliant idea of throwing a "Crocktoberfest" get together this Sunday. Since pulled pork was taken, I've ambitiously decided to take on the dessert category.

Any thoughts on a good no-fail slow cooker dessert?

Editor: Jen, here's one I tried a long time ago:

Slow Cook Magic: Make Orange Soufflé in a Crock-Pot

It was pretty good — as long as you don't think of it as an actual soufflé! There are some better ideas in the comments: Bread pudding, cheesecake.

Readers, what else would you suggest for Jen?
