When my oven broke before a potluck, I had to think of another way to make the brownies I had promised to take. These divine slow-cooker brownies were my solution. —Marion Karlin, Waterloo, Iowa,

In large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in chocolate syrup and vanilla. Add flour and baking powder, stirring just until moistened. Stir in chopped almonds.
Spoon mixture into 8 greased half-pint jars. Center lids on jars and screw on bands until fingertip tight. Add hot water to a 7-qt. oval slow cooker; place jars in slow cooker. Cook, covered, on high until a toothpick inserted in center of brownies comes out clean, 2-3 hours. Remove jars from slow cooker to wire racks to cool completely.
Meanwhile, bring creamer to a boil in a small saucepan over high heat. Stir in candy coating until melted. Remove from the heat; cool to room temperature. Spread ganache over cooled brownies. Sprinkle with sliced almonds.
