The slow cooker is a must have in my kitchen and being able to create delicious sweets and desserts, as well as savoury meals makes it an essential bit of kit that’s easy to use. You don’t need to splash the cash on this kitchen addition if you find yourself without a slow cooker, mine is from the Everyday range from Wilko; it’s lasted me many years and never fails to disappoint.

Easy Guide To Making Slow Cooker Fudge. Cook time varies between slow cookers, averaging around 90 - 120 minutes.
  • 500g milk chocolate
  • 1 table spoon of butter
  • 1 table spoon of vanilla essence
  • 1 can of condensed milk
  1. Break the chocolate bars up into chunks and put them in the slow cooker first.
  2. Pour the condensed milk over the chocolate - make sure to use a spoon or spatula to get all of it out.
  3. Add the butter and the vanilla essence.
  4. IMPORTANT: Leave the lid OFF , set slow cooker to LOW and using a METAL spoon, stir every 10 - 15 minutes.
  5. Just leave the slow cooker to do it's thing and pop back every 15 minutes to give it a stir. Obviously as time goes by, you will need to put a bit more effort into stirring as the mixture gets quite thick.
  6. You'll know your fudge has had enough time in the slow cooker once a crust like texture has formed on top and the fudge mixture has started to come away from the edges of the slow cooker slightly.
  7. This takes approximately 90 - 120 minutes, depending on the temperature of the "low" setting on your slow cooker.
  8. Once it's done, pour onto a lined baking tray and set in the fridge.
  9. To portion, remove baking paper and cut with a sharp knife, using hot water to help keep the knife clean and create even cuts.
  10. Store in a sealed container in the fridge.
  11. Adding Extras: If you want to add extras to your fudge (try nuts, sprinkles, raisins etc) stir these in with the mixture before you pour it into the baking tray. Alternatively, once you've poured the fudge into the lined baking tray, sprinkle your extras on top then set in the fridge.

    My husband would love these! He’s a fan of fudge. It’s just another reason for me to purchase a slow cooker – yes, I keep putting off the purchase, urgh. HELP.



    • Lukeosaurus And Me says:

      Definitely get one! They’re cheap and make meals cheaply and leaves you so much time to enjoy yourself! Whack it on and then you don’t have to spend any time in the evening cooking! I am SO glad we got ours! It’s a life saver…and I’m a lazy cook! xx

    • Lukeosaurus And Me says:

      I really need to try it in the microwave – you’re the third person I’ve heard say that they made it with way. I would like to try the traditional way too. 🙂 xx

    • Lukeosaurus And Me says:

      Thanks lovely, I spent ages trying to find a decent plugin! I’ve found so many recipes on blogs that I’ve ATTEMPTED to print, but it’s all gone a bit funny and waste a lot of colourful ink, or I just write it down on a scrap of paper and lose it forever. So I thought it’s something that bugs me, maybe it bugs other people too! Thanks for the kind words xx

    What an awesome idea! I’m still amazed that you can make fudge in a slow cooker. Sadly we don’t have a Wilko near us. I loved that shop when I lived in Nottingham many years ago. Thanks for joining up with #CookBlogShare

    • Lukeosaurus And Me says:

      It’s an amazing shop but I’m sure they do some nice ones in Argos or similar that aren’t too expensive. Maybe even the supermarket? I’m still finding more and more recipes each day for slow cookers that I’m amazed by! xx

    I tried making fudge in the microwave at Christmas which tasted delicious, but wasn’t really firm enough to bad up to give away. Will try your method next, but will use the simmer oven of our Aga as that’s what I cook on 🙂

    • Lukeosaurus And Me says:

      Ah I have never tried to make it in the microwave before, that sounds like you’d be stood next to it for a long time. As long as it tastes great, that’s all the matters. 😉 Thanks, please let me know how you get on with it! xx

    This looks fantastic. For some reason I just cannot make fudge at all – it always turns into brown glop for me. I’m definitely going to hang onto this recipe and try it, though. I never knew you could do it in a slow cooker! Maybe this one will be the one that works 🙂

    This looks amazing! I love the idea for using a slow cooker for sweet recipes. I won a slow cooker years ago, but sold it as I didn’t know what to do with it, regretting that now! Thanks so much for linking up to #howtosunday xx
