What Bounty Bars do you use in this recipe?

For this chocolate Bounty fudge we used standard multipack Bounty bars which were 57g each. However, you could use individual Bounty Bars, funsize ones or even the little ones you get in Celebrations. It would be a great way to use up leftover chocolate if you ever have such a thing.

This is a fantastic all year round chocolate fudge, one you can make whenever you feel like it. It’s rich, full of flavour and fantastic to snack on, give as a gift or enjoy for dessert or as part of an afternoon tea spread. Any coconut fan will love it.

What sort of slow cooker or crockpot should I use?

You can use any slow cookers for this home made fudge but if you have an overly large one you may find it doesn’t take quite as long to cook so adjust the cooking time accordingly.

As with all baking recipes you do need to invest in decent baking paper – we’ve found having good quality sheets makes all the difference.

Can you make this fudge in the microwave?

Many people make fudge in the microwave but I much prefer the control I have when I make it in the crock pot or slow cooker. If you don’t have a slow cooker, make it in the fudge by putting the ingredients in a microwave safe bowl and heating on short bursts in the microwave, stirring in between. Then follow the instructions as per the recipe below.

How long does slow cooker fudge keep for?

This slow cooker fudge keeps well in the fridge, in an airtight container for a couple of weeks. The flavour matures over the first couple of days of it being in the fridge so you get the full flavour after it’s been in the fridge for a few days.

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 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!
