Easy slow cooker chocolate and pecan fudge recipe

The one thing that I really wanted to try when I first got my slow cooker was slow cooker fudge.

 

Everyone raves about it! Especially when it comes to the end of term or holiday periods as everyone says it makes for a sweet gift for so many potential recipients. I have to admit that I didn’t have high hopes in making something edible the first time trying this. Fudge seems like such a hard thing to make! But thankfully, it turned out just fine and was nowhere near how tricky I thought it was going to be. You just need to make sure that you have 2 hours free(ish) as lots of stirring is involved. Here’s our version of easy slow cooker chocolate and pecan fudge.

You will need: 

Slow cooker (obviously! LOL) 

Silicone spoon or spatula (to make sure you don’t scratch your slow cooker) 

A baking paper lined dish to set and store the fudge 

 

Ingredients:  

400g milk chocolate 

1 bag of white chocolate buttons 

1 tin of condensed milk 

1 bag of pecan nuts 

Madagascar Vanilla extract

Step 1 

Break the milk chocolate into squares and pop into your slow cooker together with the condensed milk. Turn your slow cooker on and set to ‘high’ for 1 hour. Leave the lid off.

Step 2 

Stir every 10 mins with a silicone spoon or spatula. You’ll see the ingredients melting and by the 3rd stir, you’ll start to see the top getting a bit firmer. Keep going with the stirring. Towards the end of the 1st hour your fudge should be taking shape and becoming sticky.

Step 3 

After an hour, turn your slow cooker down to ‘low’. Add a teaspoon of Madagascar Vanilla extract and stir. Pop the lid on and leave for a further hour.

Step 5  

Add a big handful of pecan nut pieces to your baking paper lined dish (for setting the fudge in), space so the nuts are evenly spread. Tip your fudge into the lined dish, on top of the pecan nuts.

Step 6 

Smooth the top of the fudge then decorate the top by pressing in further pecan nuts and white chocolate buttons – the more the merrier. Cover and leave to cool, then pop into the fridge overnight.

It makes quite a lot doesn’t it. When I tried making it the first time I was convinced we’d end up with a really dinky piece. But as it turns out this is just the right amount. It will usually last us a full week (including giving some away). If you’re looking for more slow cooker recipes, check out these easy slow cooker recipes for beginners.
