Directions to make super easy crockpot fudge

Step 1

Get your big crockpot out, put the chocolate chips in, and turn the heat on high.

Step 2

Add the cans of sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, and butter.

Step 3

Stir until all the chips are wet, then watch the chocolate and butter melt. It should take a few hours, and you’ll have to stir the fudge occasionally so it doesn’t burn. If your fudge looks too thick (making peaks), add a bit of milk to it and stir out the clumps.

Step 4

When the fudge has a thick syrupy consistency, boil your jars and lids to sanitize them and fill the hot jars with the hot fudge.

Step 5

Put the lids on the jars. As the jars of fudge cool, the lids will seal – you should hear a ping sound. The fudge lasts forever, assuming you don’t eat it all!

Step 6

The best part of making the fudge is cleaning out the bowl afterward!

Variations for slow cooking super easy crockpot fudge recipe

Step 1

Add 5 peppermint candy sticks to the batch for chocolate-peppermint fudge. 

Step 2

Add 1 1/2 cup of maraschino cherry juice and half a cup of dry in place of the evaporated milk. If you are really industrious, you can dry the cherries from your maraschino cherry jar in your oven (on its lowest setting, turning them occasionally). Dried cherries and this cherry fudge make a great ice-cream topping.

Step 3

Use milk chocolate and substitute one of the bags of chocolate for toffee bits. Chocolate-toffee topping is delish!

Step 4

Add 2 tablespoons of almond extract. It’s a nice Italian variation, great for coffee!

  1. This looks so wonderful! Definitely going to try this! P.S. You’re up over at my blog today! My 3 three and under are out of town for 5 days, so no blogging fodder from them. Thanks so much for your help!

  2. Yum, have to try this

  3. Help me get this right. You boil the jars then fill with fudge put lids on and then they’ll seal on their own. I don’t have to submerge the jars back in boiling water for a water bath? Am I correct? I don’t want to mess it up. Thanks!

  4. Please can you tell me what is the weight on a bag of chocolate chips for this recipe please?

  5. Kristen Yard says:

    Hi, Amelda! The regular-sized bag of chocolate chips is generally 12 oz. The recipe calls for (5) bags so that would be about 60 oz. We have a big bag of chocolate chips linked in the ingredients, and it should be plenty!
