With Father’s Day coming up I thought it time to revisit a slow cooker fudge recipe. Dougie absolutely loves fudge, so we wanted to make some ready for Father’s Day. I have struggled to get condensed milk during lockdown but we managed to find some in our local supermarket, so I set about making some new fudge recipes. The result was this amazing crumbly fudgey slow cooker chocolate honeycomb Crunchie fudge. This is without a doubt our most favourite fudge so far! We have made a few fudge recipes now, which you can find here- 3 other simple slow cooker fudge recipes
Here in the UK we have Dairy Milk Crunchie bars which are golden honeycomb crunch bars covered in dairy milk chocolate. This is what we used to put through the fudge at the end and on top of the fudge for decoration. I wasn’t sure whether it would work as the heat from the fudge may have melt the honeycomb but it worked really well and added perfectly to the texture of the fudge.
We use 1 tin of sweet condensed milk (395g)
400g of chopped Chocolate – we used a mixture of milk and dark chocolate
a knob of butter
1/4tsp Salt (optional) We find the saltiness enhances the fudge flavour
1tsp of vanilla extract
4 Crunchie Bars – chop 3 into small shards and keep by the fourth bar for decoration purposes.
Simply place all the ingredients on the low setting of your slow cooker / crockpot and with the lid off stir the mixture every 10-15 minutes. The mixture will come together around the edges of the pot at 2 hours. Just before you pour the mixture into the tin add in the 3 chopped Crunchie bars into the mixture and then add it all to the prepared tin. Leave to stand for 10 minutes and then sprinkle the remaining Chrunchie bar on top of the fudge, gently pressing the shards onto the cooling fudge. Place immediately into the fridge for 2 hours to set.
We hope that you enjoy making this slow cooker chocolate Crunchie fudge recipe. We find these slow cooker fudge recipes great for kids to get involved with. The slow cooker does get warm so do remember to supervise the stirring and maybe set an alarm every 10 minutes so you don’t forget to stir! All that is left to say is enjoy and make sure that you all get to enjoy the fudge not just the deserving Daddies on Father’s day!
