When I say this dessert is easy, I mean it really, truly couldn’t be any easier. You simple throw a few things into the slow cooker and a few hours later dessert is served!

Even better, the recipe uses frozen berries, so I can keep everything I need to make it handy at all times.

I like to use a combination of frozen raspberries, blueberries, blackberries and strawberries when I make this compote, but feel free to use your favorites.

The compote also stores for up to a week in the refrigerator. I like to serve it warm, but it’s also delicious at room temperature.

My favorite way to enjoy this delicious berry sauce is on top of some vanilla ice cream, but it’s also a wonderful topping for pound or angel food cake.

And don’t forget breakfast–my kids love it on pancakes, waffles and English muffins too!

This has quickly become one of my family’s favorite dessert. Even my kids can put it together, and it’s one of those desserts that falls into the category of comfort food for me.

In fact, I’m planning to enjoy it all year long. Who says you can’t eat ice cream in December?

Be sure to save this Slow Cooker Warm Berry Compote recipe to your favorite Pinterest board for later.
