I have really slowed down on making fudge recipes this year but when I saw Cadbury Picnic chocolate bars in the shop I was inspired to see if it would make a nice fudge. And it turned out really well!

I love chocolate that is full of texture and different tastes – and Picnics are just like that. Crispy cereal, chewy caramel, crunchy peanuts and raisins, all surrounded by Cadbury milk chocolate. What isn’t to love? The different flavours make it a really perfect fudge and a great taste experience.

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 or want to save time, make it in the microwave 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 delicious Picnic chocolate 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 crock pot on high and be done in under an hour!

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

When making this 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.

This is such a great fudge recipe, perfect for any picnic fan and one that is great to share. The only thing to be aware of is that it won’t last long – you’ll just want to keep eating more and more of it!
