slow-cooker triple chocolate brownies

the goods:

nonstick cooking spray
1 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into pieces
8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1 cup sugar
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Lightly coat a 5-quart slow-cooker insert with cooking spray. Line bottom with parchment paper and lightly coat with spray. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt.
Place butter and chocolate in a medium microwave-safe bowl and microwave in 30-second increments, stirring after each, until chocolate is melted. Add sugar; stir to combine. Stir in eggs. Add flour mixture and chocolate chips and stir just until moistened (do not overmix). Transfer to slow cooker and smooth top. Cover and cook on low 3 and 1/2 hours.

Uncover and cook 30 minutes more. Remove insert from slow cooker and let cool completely on a wire rack, about 2 hours.

Turn out onto a work surface and cut! My husband says this is amazing with strawberries...
