A few weeks ago I made heart shaped fudge for Valentines and it felt only right that I should make shaped fudge for Easter too. Easter egg shapes seemed like the perfect thing to make and these little fudge bites turned out so well that I just had to share the recipe with you.

Slow Cooker Easter Egg Fudge Shapes

This Easter chocolate fudge recipe is so easy to make and can be made with any chocolate you like. We chose white chocolate as it contrasts nicely with the Micro Mini Eggs we used to decorate it but milk chocolate would also be lovely.

You could even use leftover Easter eggs for this Easter fudge – it’s a really great way of using up spare Easter candy and chocolate.

Can you flavour or colour this fudge?

If you want to add flavours or colours to this recipe you could add a few drops of flavouring or colouring at the beginning. Be aware though, that if you add a lot then you may need to add more chocolate to compensate. The general rule is for every tablespoon of liquid you need to add an extra 100g chocolate.

A bright yellow fudge colour be great for Easter and there are so many different, fresh spring flavours you could try for the fudge. But, as it’s a bit of an Easter tradition, we love the classic chocolate flavours in this fudge without any extra colours or flavours.

What sprinkles or decorations should we use on these Easter shapes?

For this recipe I used Micro Mini Eggs. If you use bigger Easter moulds you may find that Cadbury Mini Eggs are the perfect size to use as decorations. Alternatively, you could use any sprinkles you wanted – brightly coloured hundreds and thousands, egg shaped sprinkles. Whatever you feel like or have to hand.

What moulds should we use?

I used silicone Easter egg shaped ice cube trays for this recipe. Each tray had 15 sections and the fudge filled four trays – making 60 hearts. But, you can use any size moulds you like, if they’re a lot bigger than ice cube size you will need to leave them to set longer.

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?

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?

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 in the crock pot 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 with it 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?

These fudge pieces are slightly different to our normal fudge, needing a little more equipment due to the heart shapes. Here’s what 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!
