Slow cooker chocolate fudge recipe

The slow cooker is the ideal slow and constant heat that you need to make this slow cooker chocolate fudge. You can make a few variations but this is so delicious that all of them will disappear in a flash.



  • 2 x blocks (375g) cooking milk chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 1 tin (395g) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 pkt (160g) M&M's Mini


Step 1. Gather all ingredients together.

Step 2. Place chocolate, condensed milk and butter into slow cooker on high with the lid off. Stir with a metal or silicon spoon every 15 minutes until melted and turn setting down to low and continue to stir every 15 mins for the remaining time (up to 2 hours).

Step 3. Pour into a lined 20cm x 20 cm square cake tin and smooth over the top.

Step 4. Sprinkle with M&M's Mini and place into the fridge to cool for 1 hour. Cut into squares and serve.

Slow cooker chocolate fudge



  • This fudge is quite firm and would be softer if you use about a quarter less chocolate.
  • Moisture is the enemy of chocolate and will cause it to seize and become lumpy. Make sure you DO NOT use a wooden spoon and DO NOT put the lid on the slow cooker for this recipe.
  • You could make this into white chocolate fudge by replacing the milk chocolate with white chocolate.
  • If you don't have a slow cooker you could always try Fudge in a bag with the kids for a fun activity.
  • Caramel fudge is a deliciously creamy alternative to chocolate fudge.
  • Easy chocolate fudge can be wrapped up into tiny bite-sized pieces and given as a gift.
  • 2 ingredient chocolate fudge is our most popular fudge and so easy the kids can make it.
