How to make fudge?
Fudge is an easy recipe to make! Slow Cooker fudge is the easiest ever!
We use a combination of ingredients such as chocolate, butter, sweetened condensed milk.
We mix these ingredients together as the chocolate melts, stirring to combine as we go.
Next we simply transfer the mixture into a lined slice tin and place in the fridge to set.
The fudge will take 1-3 hours to become fully hard. Once it has set, we can remove it from the fridge, pull the sides of paper up to remove from the pan and use a sharp knife to cut into pieces.
To make our fudge, in the Slow Cooker, all of the ingredients get added to the bowl with the temperature on low, lid off and we simply stir as we go!

When I am mixing the mini eggs for this recipe, I crush some of them in my finger tips (or cut them in 1/2). The pattern for decorating can be random and hazard, sprinkle as your heart desires!
Now that you know how to make this recipe, think of all of the flavours and varieties you can make! Be festive, creative, colourful and let your imagine do the talking!
- Slow Cooker (Mine if 5.5 litres)
- Slice tray (My slice tray measures (28 x 17.5 x 5 cm)
- Baking paper (so it doesn't stick)
- 500 grams white chocolate melts Note 1
- 397 grams sweetened condensed milk Note 2
- 50 grams butter
- 197 grams speckled eggs Note 3
- 1/4 cup multi coloured sprinkles See note 3 above
- 1/4 cup chocolate sprinkles See note 3 above
- Line a slice tray with baking paper (My slice tray measures (28 x 17.5 x 5 cm)
- Turn your Slow Cooker on to a low temperature
- Add white chocolate melts,sweetened condensed milk and butter
- Stir every 15 mins for a 1 hr period
- Turn the heat to warm (or off if you don't have a warm setting)
- Stir through 1/2 of your mini egg sprinkle mix into the melted fudge
- Pour your fudge into your slice tray
- Decorate the top of the fudge with the remining 1/2 of the mini egg sprinkle mix.
- Place in the fridge to set for at least 2 hrs

- Note 1 if you prefer to make Dark or Milk Chocolate Fudge, simply switch out the milk chocolate for your favourite. Keep the measurement and rest of the ingredients the same.
- Note 2 This is simply 1 normal sized tin of sweetened condensed milk as is from the store. It will be with the powdered or packaged milks.
- Note 3 This measurement is for 1 packet for speckled eggs. You can get any brand and they will be about the same. To make our fudge economical instead of using more of these chocolate eggs, we add some coloured and chocolate sprinkles. You can use whichever sprinkles you already have at home as to not purchase additional ingredients. The idea is also about different colours and textures. Cadbury mini eggs are hugely popular in Australia, but there is also a wide variety of other brands which are similar. I am using M and M crispy speckled eggs as the packet was slightly bigger than other ones available. Don't worry if your packet is a little more or less. For this as we add it at the end it is about the colour, the fun and the creativity. The amount won't change the taste of the fudge as that is set in our 3 basic fudge ingredients (ie chocolate, sweetened condensed milk and butter).
You know that if you haven’t got a slow cooker, I am trying more and more to get you to buy one with my recipes. Haha, just kidding!
If is a super fun and easy way to cook and there is no stress the same way there is when you are trying to melt chocolate on the stove or microwave. Those methods both produce delicious results as well, but they are possibly not the easiest fudge recipes you will ever make.
Please give me a shout if you have questions or make the recipe and want to give feedback.
I said this not too long ago, but I wish you well and slow cook on my friends.
