I love making slow cooker Christmas fudge recipes and we have so many already that it felt only natural to make a Christmas Pudding Slow Cooker Fudge recipe too. It’s such a classic Christmas flavour and one that is always so nostalgic. Plus, Christmas pudding is something people either love or hate but with this fudge I can guarantee the majority of people will absolutely love it!

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.

Also, a lot of people add vanilla extract or a vanilla essence to fudge but we don’t find it necessary. The fudge has enough flavour without it!

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 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.

You can also make this fudge on the stove top if you wanted. Using a bain marie on a low heat, you just heat the ingredients together, stirring regularly until it’s really thick and well combined. However you make it, it’ll be the perfect Christmas treat.

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.

This fudge is great to make as a home made Christmas gift through December, presented simply in individual gift bags. The kids love giving this sort of thing to their teachers at the end of term as a homemade gift. It really is our favourite choice when looking for slow cooker desserts and something the whole family love.

You can’t go wrong with a basic Crockpot chocolate fudge either.
