Slow Cooker Chocolate Fudge

Slow cooker fudge is a fun way to make this popular and very tasty sweet treat!

How To Make Fudge In A Slow Cooker

This is so good. Slow cooker chocolate fudge tastes just perfect.

Although it is unlike other slow cooker recipes where they can be left for hours on end, this recipe requires you to be able to stir it every 15 minutes during the 1 hour cooking time.

It also requires you to resist the temptation to dip a finger in to taste/test.

Fudge can of course be cooked in a pan on the stove, or in the microwave. But this is equally tasty, and I think really easy to make with very few ingredients.  Just use normal milk chocolate (not cooking chocolate) and you can just go for the cheap bars.


You quite simply add all the ingredients to the slow cooker and switch it to low for around 90 minutes. The lid is left off for the whole time. You need to give it a good stir every 15 or so minutes (which is where the self discipline to not dip in is required).


Once the hour is up the mixture will be much thicker. The mixture then needs to be transferred to a lined or greased baking tin (I used a 20cm tin) and left to cool.

Once it is completely cooled, place it in a fridge to set (usually around 3 hours, or overnight).

The great thing about this recipe is you can really play around with the flavours, I’m thinking Baileys flavoured fudge, rum and raisin or perhaps peanut butter? Hmmm.

Fudge also makes the perfect homemade Christmas gift. If you want to give it away that is.

Hi, this looks brilliant and I am definitely going to try it.

Just wondered tho, the peanut butter suggestions sound great but where do I start with it? lol

Hopefully someone has tried it and can keep me right with it.

Hi Janet - peanut butter fudge is definitely on my list of ones to try out - I've just had a quick search and this recipe looks promising and is probably how I would try it, let me know if you make it!

I'm wondering what size slow cooker you need for this recipe? If we have a larger one and want to make more, does the timings for cooking change? Or is it the same as it's all in the same slow cooker?

Hi Matt - I used a 6L slow cooker but you can use any size. The timings should be the same - let me know how you get on!

I have been making this recipe with my son for the last three years and it’s great! I make three versions - white chocolate, milk chocolate and dark chocolate (dairy free substitute - made with coconut milk and dairy free butter). As the whole family loves it, I double the portions - this means it is longer cooking time (I wait until it thickens - stirring every 20 mins). Really easy and very delicious -a whole family pleaser! Thanks for the recipe!
