Honeycomb is such a wonderful treat that I thought I would make a simple Slow Cooker Honeycomb Fudge to indulge in at home. We used Cadbury Crunchie bars for this but you could use any honeycomb, chocolate coated honeycomb or even cinder toffee for a stronger flavour.

How do you make slow cooker fudge?

Slow cooker fudge is so simple to make – with just a tin of condensed milk and chocolate. You can then add anything you like to create a whole world of fudge flavours.

You can use any slow cooker for this recipe and an instant pot would probably work well too. Make sure you use good quality baking paper so that the chocolate fudge doesn’t stick to the tray – I’ve known people resort to eating it straight from the tin with a spoon when they forgot to line it!

What is different about honeycomb fudge?

Honeycomb fudge is a great way of using up leftover chocolate bars but there is one thing to be aware of. Honeycomb fudge doesn’t store very well. Honeycomb by nature attracts moisture so if you leave it in the fridge or anywhere too hot and humid the honeycomb will break down and turn sticky.

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?

To keep the honeycomb at that perfect crunchy consistency you need to store this fudge somewhere dry and cool, not in direct sunlight and not in the fridge. It would be great to make for an occasion and sharing out to eat there and then – a real treat to enjoy with friends and family.

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 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.

Our whole family loves this really delicious slow cooker Crunchie fudge recipe. It’s one of the simplest fudge recipes we’ve made and it felt like such a treat.
