Terry’s Chocolate Orange is such an iconic flavour. For me it’s the taste of Christmas, having had a chocolate orange under the tree so many times. It’s a flavour that so many people love so it was only right that I make a Terry’s Chocolate Orange Fudge to add to our slow cooker fudge recipe collection! But, this isn’t one just for December – it’s a classic flavour that can be enjoyed at any time of the year.

What chocolate do you use for this recipe?

To be honest, this is just a Slow Cooker Chocolate Orange Fudge recipe, using Terry’s Chocolate Oranges but you could use any other chocolate orange bars which would give similar results – you need around 400-450g chocolate in total and this can be a mix of milk chocolate and orange chocolate – whichever works for you.

If you only have milk chocolate you can use 500g milk chocolate and a tablespoon of orange extract which would give a delicious flavour in this easy orange fudge recipe. However you make it, this fudge always looks delicious!

Terry’s Chocolate Orange often comes in different flavours too. If you wanted to make a dark chocolate orange fudge you could use Terry’s Dark Chocolate Oranges instead. Or a white chocolate orange fudge using Terry’s White Chocolate Oranges.

We decorated the top of the fudge with Terry’s Chocolate Orange Minis which are just the right size to cut up nicely on top of the chocolate fudge. You could also use another Terry’s Chocolate Orange broken up into segments in this orange chocolate fudge recipe – whatever is easiest!

Can I make fudge in the microwave?

If you don’t have a slow cooker you can make Terry’s chocolate orange 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.

I have seen many people make choc orange fudge and add orange icing to the top using icing sugar, orange food colouring and orange zest. You can do that too if you like but I wanted to really give the option of a basic and easy two ingredient fudge recipe that you can then switch up however you like.

What was the Mrs Hinch Chocolate Orange Fudge Recipe?

The Mrs Hinch Terrys Chocolate Orange Fudge slow cooker recipe included Crunchie to add extra texture to the finished treat but, personally, I love nothing more than the traditional, rich and creamy fudge texture in our orange chocolate fudge. But, you never know, I may try a Slow Cooker Chocolate Orange Fudge with Crunchie at some point!

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.

I love making fudge and it is fantastic to give as gifts – home made fudge presented in individual gift bags and tied with a ribbon. They’re something the whole family will love, sharing out the chocolate orange fudge squares over the festive season.

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:

    • If you used ‘normal’ condensed milk and milk chocolate Terry’s Chocolate Oranges I would suggest cooking for longer, carrying on stirring every ten to fifteen minutes. It may be that your slow cooker is a little larger or it doesn’t heat up quite as much. You can put the un-set fudge back in the slow cooker to cook for longer without any issue, it will melt again and you can carry on.
