This is a slow cooker fudge recipe I’ve been intending to make for quite a while but for some reason it’s always got pushed down this list – until now! Read on for our delicious three ingredient Nutella fudge recipe, a fantastic option for anyone. Who doesn’t love Nutella?!

This Chocolate Nutella Fudge is actually one of most easy fudge recipes – and uses just three ingredients. Condensed milk, milk chocolate and Nutella. You need the milk chocolate in the recipe to help the fudge set and it ends up having a really rich consistency. It’s lovely!

Can you vary this easy Nutella fudge recipe?

For this recipe we use pretty cheap milk chocolate and Nutella that we always have in the cupboard. You could use different kinds of chocolate like a hazelnut chocolate or a more expensive milk chocolate but we always find cheap chocolate – supermarket value or basic ranges – work really well.

You could also stir some nuts into the fudge mixture before pouring into the tin to set or even sprinkle some chopped nuts on top. This would work well with the Nutella flavour and add some texture to the fudge too.

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?

This slow cooker Nutella 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 nutty chocolate 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 crock pot 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.

What equipment do you need to make slow cooker fudge?

Slow cooker fudge doesn’t need anything special to make it, and you probably already have everything you need at home, but this is the equipment 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!
