Directions for making slow cooker sauce fudge

Step 1

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

Step 1 for making slow cooker fudge is to put the chocolate chips, condensed milk, evaporated milk, and butter into the slow cooker and turn it on high

Stir your fudge occasionally until it’s thick but not forming peaks.

Step 3

Stir until all the chips are wet, then watch the chocolate and butter melt. It takes approximately an hour for the fudge to cook. If your fudge looks too thick (making peaks), add more evaporated 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.

Store your slow cooker fudge in jars.

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!

The fudge will thicken once it’s cooled. If you are like me, you’ll probably just take a spoon to it, however, if you want to pour it over ice cream, add a layer of fudge to a cake, or dip fruit in it, then you will need to warm it up and stir until it’s smooth again.

Variations for slow cooking super easy crockpot fudge recipe

Chocolate peppermint fudge

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

Cherry fudge

Add 1 1/2 cups 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.

Chocolate toffee fudge

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

Chocolate almond fudge

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

    1. 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!

  1. 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!
