Fudge Flavours

I love how easy this recipe is to make – I’ve made it with the kids as using the slow cooker means that unlike with a traditional fudge recipe where you have to be very careful with the temperature the slow cooker controls the temperature and makes it easier to make.

This batch I mixed up with dark chocolate – I happen to know that one of our relations doesn’t like milk chocolate and only dark so instead of splitting the chocolate that I used between two different sorts this time I just used the dark chocolate chips in the mix and the result was a delicious more bitter fudge than the one that we would normally make at Christmas.

Love this variation of fudge then check out our video for Chocolate Orange Fudge which can also be made in the slow cooker!

What we used to make and gift our Slow Cooker Easter Egg Fudge

We have a large slow cooker, although only having 4 in the family it makes much more sense as we can batch cook and put it in the freezer. When making the fudge it means that I can easily double or triple the recipe especially useful when making the fudge as gifts instead of as a family treat.

I have used square baking tins to set my fudge in in the past but recently started to use a rectangle tin with some silicone coated parchment paper which is kinder to the environment than normal greaseproof paper.

Layer the bottom of these cute Easter Gift boxes with some of the parchment paper and then add in some of your homemade gift and you have perfect Easter Gift Boxes to hand out to friends and family filled with homemade Easter Fudge.

And just because I don’t always want to share – I have an Easter Plate that I fill with the fudge and have it out over Easter weekend to enjoy little bites of as and when.

  1. I’m giving this a go! I had to think for a second whether or not the instructions meant hen’s eggs should be added as well as the wording is *slightly* ambiguous – but no. Just mini eggs. Phew.!

  2. I allow myself ONE small bag of cadbury mini eggs each year because once I start eating them I can’t stop myself. We love fudge and the fact that this is made in the slow cooker makes me ready to hop over to the grocery store to pick up the supplies. My kids are going to absolutely love this surprise! Especially since we don’t celebrate Easter, it will be a way for them to feel a little bit included in their friends’ festivities.

  3. You had me at fudge! It is so easy to make and the little eggs just add a little something festive to it! This stuff is so good it just doesn’t last long with my house full of sweet fanatics!

  4. This Cadbury mini egg slow-cooker fudge was absolutely amazing! I love crockpot recipes, and this is now one of my favorites. I’m super excited to make this again in a few weeks. 🙂
