Slow-cooker chocolate fudge

Not a healthy treat, but an easy and tasty way to make a lovely present for someone special! 

If you follow my blog then you’ll already be aware how much I love my slow-cooker! I use it a lot and always have done.

As I look at lots of slow-cooker recipe pages I’ve often seen this slow-cooker fudge come up, and always thought I would like to have a go at it.

The perfect opportunity has come up- Mother’s day is on Sunday, and although my Mum isn’t a fudge fan, my husband is going to be seeing his Nan, and I wanted to make something special for him to take up to her.

The joy of this is that it’s super easy and fuss free- I’ve never been one to make this sort of sweet treat as I have never invested in a sugar thermometer. I did try out Nigella’s hokey-pokey for a dinner party last year (anyone remember that episode where she eats it all in the car on the way to the dinner party? Love that one!!)- anyway, I tried 3 batches and it was a total disaster every time, a sticky mess! Slow-cooker fudge can’t really go wrong I don’t think, as long as you remember to stir it, so it’s my kind of recipe!

You can mix it up any way you like really- white chocolate, dark chocolate, milk chocolate and I’m sure there are lots of other things you could try like peanut butter. You can also top with anything that looks pretty… mini eggs, reese’s pieces, smarties…. it’s a lovely easy thing to make pretty!

For this Mother’s day version I used little chocolate hearts that I got from Tiger.

My Recipe

Serves: lots
Syns: a lot unfortunately- consume mindfully!
Healthy Extra: none, sadly

Ingredients

  • 1 tin condensed milk
  • 400g milk chocolate, broken up
  • 1 tbsp butter

Method

  1. Pop the slow-cooker on low, pour in the condensed milk, and add the chocolate and butter.
  2. Leave cooking for 2 hours, stirring every 15 minutes
  3. After 2 hours, pour the mixture into a square cake tin (or a loaf tin for a thicker result) that you have lined with greaseproof/baking paper
  4. If you are decorating with anything (smarties, mini eggs etc) sprinkle these over now.
  5. Leave to set overnight (it takes a while to reach the right consistency).
  6. Turn out of the tin and cut into squares.
