Ohhhhhh we do love a good fudge and this White Chocolate Fudge is so simple to make. The kids love it too and it’s really festive. We’ve made it 2 ways my favourite in the slow cooker, yes really you can make fudge in the slow cooker as well as using a double broiler on the hob. But, when the kids make it we really prefer the slow cooker method as no flames involved. So here we go our really simple slow cooker white chocolate fudge with M&Ms.
Making Fudge in the Slow COoker
We first made fudge in the slow cooker way back when T was just 3 years old. She made it as a gift for her preschool teachers and they loved it.
It takes a little longer than in a double broiler but let you child take control, give the timer over to them letting them set it and stir the fudge as needed.
Top Tips for Easy Fudge Making in the Slow Cooker
- To make it “glossy” we add in a knob of unsalted butter this isn’t necessary but it does make it a little easier to stir as well.
- As with our original recipe, we set that timer for every 10 minutes and then stir away.
- When it comes time to let it set and harden DO NOT put it in the fridge as this can set it too quickly and it occasionally crystalises it. Instead, cover it and let it harden on the side.
