Learn how to make Creme Egg Fudge with this super simple and easy recipe. This slow cooker fudge recipe uses your crock pot for simple and delicious fudge every time. Just 3 ingredients! No boiling of sugar, it uses condensed milk and chocolate instead. Such a delicious treat as an Easter sweet or dessert.
I made this Creme Egg Fudge recipe last year, without really planning to blog about it but it was too good not to share. This slow cooker (crock pot if you’re that way inclined) fudge combo is everywhere on Pinterest and it’s so adaptable.
The children and I made a chocolate orange version as Christmas gifts for teachers last year and it went down SO well I had to try it with Creme Eggs.
It takes a while but just bubbles along quietly on low in the slow cooker whilst you get on with something else. Result? Deliciously easy slow cooked Easter fudge. (You can also cook it in the microwave using THIS method of mine if you prefer.)
G&H are so excited to help package this up and give as gifts to adults this weekend. I hope someone remembers to give me a bag of it..
I made this in my new slow cooker which I’m a bit in love with. It’s only £30 ish on Amazon at the moment but it’s made me really enjoy using a slow cooker for just about the first time ever as it’s so light and easy to use. (Sorry, I’m becoming a slow cooker bore. I promise it will wear off soon.)
I used my favourite Callebaut chocolate (dark in the fudge and white on top). This chocolate is just amazing, it melts so well and really makes a difference to any recipe that calls for chocolate to be melted.
It’s not cheap but when you buy it in bulk (1kg bags at a time) from Amazon it works out about the same price as supermarket chocolate. A good investment if you love a spot of baking as much as I do.
Tips for making the Slow Cooker Creme Egg Fudge:
- Depending on your particular slow cooker, this may take a little more or less time. As soon as it is thick and silky smooth looking, it’s ready.
- Make sure that you do use baking paper (or parchment as it’s sometimes called) to line the tin. (I like this one, available on Amazon: Bacofoil Baking Parchment.)
- Slow cooker fudge look like it’s a bit lumpy or splitting? Resolve this by giving it a really really good beating with a wooden spoon. It should soon come together again.
- Use a fairly small dish to get a nice, deep fudge. (I like this one, available on Amazon: Masterclass 23cm Tin.)
- You can add extra flavourings if you’d like, like this amazing vanilla extract (it’s THE best!).
- I use dark chocolate in the fudge this time to give a deeper flavour. You can use milk chocolate if you prefer or half and half works really well too.
- This fudge is kept stable by being chilled. Keep it in the fridge until you need it and it you’re giving it away, suggest that the lucky recipients keep it chilled too.
