I have made so many quick and easy Slow cooker fudge recipes over the last couple of years and they all use Carnation Condensed Milk or Carnation Caramel. My aim for this year was to make a slow cooker fudge recipe that was more like traditional fudge.

Slow Cooker Clotted Cream Fudge

I wanted to create a Clotted Cream Fudge in the slow cooker without condensed milk. A recipe that instead went back to basics with cream and sugar. After a few attempts we got the mix just right – and have decided that this is our best fudge yet.

What is in Slow Cooker Clotted Cream Fudge?

Clotted Cream Fudge is a mix of clotted cream, sugar, golden syrup and just a little vanilla. During the cooking process it all combines, thickens and the flavour matures, creating a delicious, rich fudge that transports you right back to your childhood.

For this recipe we used a whole tub of Rodda’s Clotted Cream but I’m sure you could use homemade clotted cream or any other brand of clotted cream that you prefer. We just love Rodda’s British clotted cream and buy it often.

How to make clotted cream fudge in slow cookers

To make this clotted cream fudge recipe you just need to add everything to the slow cooker pot, cook for a few hours and stir regularly until it becomes thick before beating to thicken the mixture even more. It’s not a hard recipe, just one that takes a little while.

Making fudge without condensed milk was completely new to us but it’s something we’ll be doing much more going forward. Although this recipe needs stirring regularly, it’s simple to do if you’re at home during the day to stir it every thirty minutes and needs much less stirring than if you were cooking this fudge on the hob.
