I love making fudge from different types of sweets and confectionary and for this one instead of chocolate bars I decided to use Caramac, a bar that reminds me of my childhood and the inability to eat a whole bar in one go!

The Caramac caramel bars don’t have quite the same consistency as chocolate and so the fudge created is lovely and smooth but softer than other slow cooker fudge recipes we’ve made. If you want a more solid fudge, add more Caramac to the mix.

For this easy fudge recipe we used standard 30g Caramac bars but you could also use Caramac Buttons – if you can find them – and I have seen talk online of Caramac chips which I’ve never seen before and may be an overseas thing but I think they’d work really well for this recipe.

Caramac is quite expensive but I found a deal on the Cherryz app with 3 bars for £1 instead of 60p each in the supermarket. It’s a great app – like a pound shop but with loads of variety and without the need to actually leave the house!

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.

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 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.

This fudge isn’t at all sickly sweet, it’s a really delicious, rich fudge that the whole family enjoy. If you’re looking for other fudge flavours to try why not give our White Chocolate fudge a go? We also have Carnation Caramel Fudge, Salted Caramel Fudge, Lotus Biscoff Fudge and Peanut Butter Fudge! You can see all our fudge recipes to date here.
