It’s no secret that I love making slow cooker fudge and most weeks I try to think of a new recipe to make. This week I decided to make a Slow Cooker Mars Bar Fudge recipe as Mars bars are one of my favourite indulgent treats and something that are just so easily available too.

What Mars bars do you need for this recipe?

For this recipe we used pretty standard multipack Mars bars but you can use any Mars bars you can find in the shops – fun size one, the ones you get in Celebrations or individual ones from the corner shop. Any Mars will do.

This is one of the easiest but most satisfying slow cooker fudge recipes I have made. The finished fudge tastes just like a Mars bar and is the perfect fudge to portion up into individual bags and gift at Christmas or any other time of the year. It’s a chocolate fudge that the whole family will love.

How long does slow cooker fudge keep for?

Slow cooker fudge keeps well in the fridge, in an airtight container for a couple of weeks. However, any pieces of this fudge with caramel chunks showing may melt slightly – they still taste great but look quite wet in the fridge.

If you’re not going to be eating it for a while, or are going to be gifting it, leave the extra Mars pieces out and it will still taste great and last better too!

Can you make slow cooker fudge with evaporated milk?

Slow cooker fudge works well because condensed milk has a 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 – get some condensed milk instead.

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.

Do you cook slow cooker fudge high or low temperature?

We always cook slow cooker 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.

Many fudge recipes also include butter, vanilla essence, vanilla extract or icing sugar but we’ve never felt the need to add these into the recipe – it’s delicious as it is!

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!
