This Slow Cooker Sea Salt and Milk Chocolate Fudge is so easy, it’s a great one to do with the kids.
I think the idea behind slow cooker fudge is simply so we can leave it for a little while, it’s a great one to have on the go while you are cooking, cleaning or anything else that takes a little time to complete. It’s also still quick enough to make it the day before birthday parties, and great for teachers Christmas gifts. I went for sea salt as my added flavour because I am really loving sea salt and caramel flavours at the moment. My alternative is chilli flakes. Both are a brilliant twist on a traditional sweet fudge and totally moreish.
All you needs it:
1 397g tin of condensed milk
400g of chocolate. I’ve used milk chocolate, but you can change the chocolate to change the flavour of your fudge
1 tsp Vanilla extract
Big pinch of sea salt or chilli flakes
Break up your chocolate and add it to the slow cooker, then pour in your condensed milk. You can do this for 2 hours on low or 1 hour on high. Alternative pop it all in the microwave for 3-4 minutes.
Stir, every 5/8 minutes. Don’t leave it too long or you might get some gritty bits of chocolate. It becomes smooth after about 30 minutes, and ready not too long after. Add you vanilla at the half way point, or if you’ve used the microwave add the vanilla when all the ingredients are melted.
Once you have your fudge mix ready, line a baking tray with tin foil and pour in.
Or into your shaped silicone moulds.
The fudge will take between 1-3 hours to set although ours was done in just under 2 hours. Removed carefully from your moulds and/or tin.
Once you have removed the fudge from the mould chop into bite-sized pieces, and sprinkle with sea salt of chilli flakes.
