These are excellent. I didn't have any coconut or cherries, so I added chopped almonds and cranberry chunks instead. Excellent.

@beanbag 03, that sounds more like an oven problem than a problem with the recipe. Is it calibrated correctly?

Terrible! I followed this recipe to the letter and the inside was still gooey as the outside top & edges were starting to burn!

These were delicious! Next time I will increase the cherries for more cherry flavor. Do you think they will still turn out?

I made these last night and they were WONDERFUL! I omitted the coconut and marachino cherries and added some milk chocolate chips and some chopped pecans and they were delicious. Thanks for a delicious recipe. Will be making them again!

This one looks and sounds like a winner.. bet they would be a hit on the Xmas tray

These are so easy to make and so good to eat

I love this recipe

Nothing is more down-home than the wonderful flavors of backwoods country cooking, so it's only fitting that these Hillbilly Baked Beans are one of our most popular slow cooker potluck recipes. They can even be reheated on a grill for a smoky taste that can't be beat!
