LP and Little Man love that they can make this easy slow cooker chocolate fudge pretty much completely by themselves – and the only tricky bit is pouring it into the dish and waiting for it to cool and set. They would eat it straight from the crock pot if I let them!

Can you make this white chocolate fudge slow cooker recipe 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 microwave 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 easy recipe below.

This fudge is great as a plain white easy chocolate fudge or you can add sprinkles to the top, a drizzle of milk chocolate sauce or any other flavourings that you feel like.

There are so many flavours that work well with white chocolate – raspberry, chocolate cranberry, strawberry, pretty much any dried fruit or even some nuts to add a bit of texture to the slow cooker fudge recipe or add broken up cookies to make something like our Cookies and Cream fudge. We loved the white chocolate cranberry fudge we made.

If you were looking to create a creamy milk or dark chocolate fudge instead just substitute the chocolate in this recipe for semi sweet chocolate or milk chocolate chips as appropriate.

What sort of slow cooker or crockpot should I use?

You can use any slow cookers for this home made fudge but if you have an overly large one you may find it doesn’t take quite as long to cook so adjust the cooking time accordingly.

As with all baking recipes you do need to invest in decent baking paper – we’ve found having good quality sheets makes all the difference.

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.

Don’t worry about needing an excuse to make crock pot chocolate fudge – I can guarantee that if you make it someone will eat it and it’s our first choice when it comes to slow cooker desserts.

So what are you waiting for? This easy delicious chocolate fudge recipe is something that everyone would appreciate and it really is an foolproof easy fudge recipe. I have also made a version of this with coconut milk and free from chocolate for a dairy free option.

Can you make this homemade fudge recipe into Milkybar Fudge?

To make Milky Bar fudge you would simply use Milkybar chocolate bars instead of generic white chocolate. You could also leave out the vanilla to have that pure smooth Milkybar taste. This would be a super simple two ingredient fudge recipe using just the candy bars and condensed milk.

I know not everyone likes white chocolate but it works really well in this recipe. You could also try a chocolate peanut butter fudge recipe – this recipe turned out so well! If you’re looking for other easy slow cooker fudge ideas to try then here’s our rocky road fudge, Oreo Fudge, Lotus Biscoff fudge, Salted Caramel Fudge and Terry’s Chocolate Orange fudge! You can find all our similar fudge recipes here and we have a slow cooker vanilla fudge in the pipeline!

    1. We store ours in the fridge but it’s fine out of the fridge as well. It will last a week or so in an airtight container but ours never lasts that long as we eat it quite quickly! x

  1. Hi,
    Asking for a friend! My fudge hasn’t set? I foloowed everything by the dot but after 12 hrs its still runny… Any ideas please? Thank you in advance xx

    1. It might be that the chocolate you used has much lower sugar and cocoa butter content than the ones we use but I’ve used a fair few types of white chocolate and as long as I use 600g of chocolate and a standard size tin of condensed milk it sets without an issue. You can add it back to the slow cooker and add more chocolate. You haven’t used evaporated milk by accident?
