crockpot brownies

Hold on to your hats. This is one rich, satisfying, amazing dessert. And it took all of 5 minutes to prepare.
The Ingredients.
--1 16 oz package of brownie mix
--1/4 cup melted butter
--1 egg
--1/4 cup water
--1 can sweetened condensed milk
--1/4 cup walnuts
--1/4 cup coconut
--1/4 cup oats

The Directions.
I used my mini 1.5 quart crockpot for this dish
The proportions of the oats, coconut, and walnuts are for the mini crock. If you decide to use a larger size, use enough of the toppings to spread over the whole surface area.
--melt butter
--add 1/4 cup of water, the egg, and the brownie mix
--stir until none of the powder is left dry; batter will be quite thick
--pour can of sweetened condensed milk over the top.
--Shuffle children quickly out of the kitchen because you are "working" and lick out the inside of the can, being careful so you don't cut off your tongue.
--wash sweetened condensed milk off of your face
--cover milk with a layer of oats, then coconut, then walnuts.
--close up crockpot and cook on high, if using a little crock, low if using a bigger one. Test with a knife after two hours, if it comes out clean, cook for another 20-30 minutes with the lid off to get rid of the collected condensation and to help solidify the condensed milk. You will know this is done when the edges pull away from your stoneware.
Since I used my mini crockpot, this cooked for about 4 1/2 hours altogether.
The Verdict.
Well worth the wait.
