All of our fudge recipes so far have used a combination of sweetened condensed milk or a milk free alternative and chocolate. I wanted to make an easy caramel fudge and was looking at using Cadbury Caramel bars or a caramel sauce when I discovered Carnation Caramel and thought that could be just the thing to use – and it worked perfectly, creating a Carnation Caramel Fudge.

Can you really make caramel fudge without condensed milk?

Carnation Caramel is the perfect answer to making fudge without condensed milk. This 2 ingredient fudge is so simple to make, tastes fantastic and has been enjoyed by everyone who has tried it. It’s different – but it works,

How do you make slow cooker fudge?

This simple two ingredient chocolate fudge is made in just 40 minutes in the slow cooker. Stirring in ten minute intervals, you can get on with other kitchen jobs happily whilst it’s cooking. It’s so easy and something the children love helping with too.

Many people also create microwave fudge but I prefer using the slow cooker as I feel like I have more control over the cooking process. It’s also pretty foolproof. As long as you stir the fudge regularly and use the right quantities of ingredients not much can go wrong. Make sure you fully line your tin with baking paper for the best results and a nice clean finish too.

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.

How long does slow cooker fudge keep for?

Slow Cooker fudge keeps well in an airtight container for weeks in the fridge. It never lasts very long in our house but it’s good to know that you can savour it over an extended period rather than eat it all in one go like us!

Home made fudge is such a great gift to make – presented simply in individual clear gift bags tied with a ribbon. It’s so nice to give at Christmas, as an end of term gift or pretty much any other time through the year.
