Over the last year or so we have made so many fudge recipes and I love experimenting with tastes and flavours. One of my favourite types of chocolate is Kinder, with that fantastic mix of white and milk chocolate which I wanted to replicate in a slow cooker fudge.

But, using Kinder chocolate bars in the recipe would be incredibly expensive so I created this lovely smooth fudge as a cheaper alternative whilst still getting that creamy mix of chocolate flavours without Kinder bars in sight.

Why should you make fudge in the slow cooker?

Fudge is so easy to make in the slow cooker, taking just 40 mins cook time on a high setting and it lets you have more control over cooking than if you were to make microwave fudge instead as it’s kept at a consistent heat and you can watch over it whilst it cooks. Also, a lot of slow cooker fudge recipes do include icing sugar but we’ve never felt the need.

Although we make this using a slow cooker it really isn’t slow cooking, and it’s pretty quick really! We have a cheap, basic 4 quart slow cooker but you can use any slow cookers or crock pots.

Can you vary this recipe?

You could easily make this into a Kinder Bueno Fudge slow cooker recipe by topping with chunks of Kinder Bueno before putting it into the fridge to set.

After cooking the fudge takes around 4 hours to set fully but is best when left overnight. The flavour seems to mature the longer you leave it to set too and we find that this fudge has the full Kinder flavour when left until the following morning.

We use a 9″ square baking tin for our fudge recipes but you can make it in any tin you have to hand – just make sure you line it with decent baking paper!

This fudge keeps well in the fridge for a few weeks in an airtight container as is fantastic to give as gifts throughout the year. Plus, it’s something the whole family love.

Can you make slow cooker fudge with evaporated milk?

Our slow cooker fudge works because condensed milk has a really high sugar content, needed to create that beautifully rich fudge. Evaporated milk isn’t the same, doesn’t have that sugar content and isn’t thick enough to help the fudge thicken and set. You can’t use evaporated milk in these recipes – so get some condensed milk instead.

Do you cook slow cooker fudge high or low temperature?

We always cook fudge on a high slow cooker temperature setting and it takes around 40 minutes in total. You could make it on the low setting but it would take longer and would still need to be stirred regularly. You may as well keep the slow cooker on high and be done in under an hour!

When cooking, is the slow cooker fudge lid on or off?

When making slow cooker fudge, you need to remove the slow cooker lid otherwise excess moisture would be retained in the slow cooker pot and the fudge wouldn’t thicken as it needs to.

What slow cooker fudge flavours can you make?

We have made so many different varieties of fudge now and there really are no limits – it’s really down to what you fancy making, what you have in the cupboard and your favorite flavour combinations.

We love a simple chocolate fudge recipe but our favourites have been our slow cooker peanut butter fudge which is amazing if you love peanut butter and Lotus Biscoff fudge which was a winner with everyone who tried it. We even made a slow cooker vegan fudge using condensed coconut milk which turned out so well too

We also have a great salted caramel fudge, cookies and cream fudge and a wonderful maple and pecan fudge. You can see all our delicious fudge flavours to date here. We really love fudge!

Because slow cooker chocolate fudge takes hardly any time to make it can be made so easily with store cupboard ingredients – and we’ve been buying condensed milk religiously for in the cupboard since we started making it! It really is one of our favourite treats to make at home and definitely some of our favourite slow cooker recipes too.

What equipment do you need to make slow cooker fudge?

Slow cooker fudge doesn’t need anything special to make it, and you probably already have everything you need at home, but this is the equipment we use:

Once you’ve got everything you need to make the fudge you can just keep making it again and again – in so many different flavours too!
