Our latest slow cooker fudge creation is one I absolutely love – Slow Cooker Rolo Fudge. Rolos are such a moreish treat and this fudge tastes perfectly like them but in wonderful tasty cubes.

Homemade fudge is such a lovely thing to make and great to share at any time of the year. It works well on a buffet table, is nice to indulge in when people visit and a perfect gift too. It looks great put in individual clear gift bags and tied with ribbon.

Can I make this easy fudge in the microwave?

If you don’t have a slow cooker you can make Rolo fudge in the microwave but I prefer using the slow cooker as I feel like I have more control over the mixture. If you make it in the microwave, add the ingredients to a microwavable bowl and heat in short bursts until the right consistency is achieved.

How long does slow cooker fudge keep for?

This slow cooker Rolo 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 chocolate 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 chocolate 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.

What equipment do you need to make slow cooker fudge?

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!
