Mint chocolate is an absolute classic flavour and whenever I think of mint chocolate I think of Mint Aero. I thought it would be good to create a Mint Aero slow cooker fudge full of that great minty flavour.

What chocolate do you use for this slow cooker chocolate fudge?

This mint choc fudge recipe uses Aero Mint chocolate. We use a combination of Aero Mint bars and Aero Bubbles to create a really lovely chocolate mint fudge that has that exact same Mint Aero flavour.

This is such an easy fudge to make at home – with just three ingredients – and one that any mint chocolate fan would love. We tone down the flavour slightly by using half Aero chocolate and half normal milk chocolate but you could use all Mint Aero chocolate for a really intense flavour.

If you don’t have Mint Aero you could instead use 400g of mint chocolate chips or even 500g milk chocolate and 1 tbsp of mint extract or peppermint extract instead for a really lovely unbranded mint chocolate fudge. Mint choc fudge is such a classic flavour and one I think most people will love.

Slow cooker fudge has become a staple thing to make in our house – and we make it more often than cake now! The whole family really enjoy it and it’s great to give as gifts too. You really can’t beat an edible treat that you’ve made yourself especially when it looks as good as this fudge does! It takes no time at all to make too.

What if I don’t have a slow cooker?

If you don’t have a slow cooker you can make this fudge in the microwave or on the hob on a constant low heat. Just make sure you don’t burn it – I much prefer the control that a slow cooker gives me.

I know a lot of people put vanilla extract or icing sugar into their fudge recipes but I personally don’t think it’s needed and much prefer to create recipes with as few elements as possible to make them as easy as possible. This is pretty much a 3 ingredient mint fudge recipe – and one I’m sure you’ll love.

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.

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.

There really is no excuse to put off making it and it’s also great to gift in individual gift bags at Christmas or any other time of the year.
