After making Mini Egg Fudge for Easter the other week, I wanted to make a really rich, milk chocolate Easter fudge too and the first thing that came to mind was obviously Cadbury Creme Eggs.

But, for our slow cooker Easter fudge I decided on using Mini Creme Eggs instead of full size ones. They are more bite size and could be folded into the finished fudge without breaking them up.

This Cadbury fudge recipe just uses milk chocolate for the fudge – and you can use Cadbury Dairy Milk for a really authentic Creme Egg flavour if you want to but we always just use basic milk chocolate. When combined with the condensed milk it gives a really lovely and rich flavour.

Do you melt Creme Eggs for this recipe?

I decided not to melt Cadburys Creme Eggs for this recipe and just use a plain milk chocolate fudge with Mini Creme Eggs in it. This was because I didn’t want the fudge to be too expensive to make, I didn’t want to mess with the fudge consistency and I wanted to make the fudge as easy to make as possible – and it turned out great.

This fudge is the perfect Easter treat, can be cut up and put into individual gift bags and makes a great alternative to traditional chocolate Easter eggs. It’s something everyone will love.

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.

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.

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.
