These is a really yummy Easter Egg Slow Cooker Fudge recipe that anyone can try. You can leave the slow cooker running on a low, with just periodic stirring. A lovely chocolatey treat, in case you don’t have enough over Easter!

I’ve made several different types of slow cooker fudge before, my favourites are basic chocolate, white chocolate and cherry and white chocolate, cranberry and macadamia.

They are all super simple to make, and really yummy. I had the idea to do a Easter fudge a while back, and as we had a few spare eggs this year I thought I’d finally give it a go. It’s quite a soft fudge, softer than my other recipes, but that’s just how I like it. It’s a very indulgent Easter treat!

So if you’d like to see how to make your own Easter Egg Slow Cooker fudge, read on or pin it for later! I have also done a little video just to show you how easy it is to do.

Ingredients

  • 230g Chocolate broken up. I used an Easter egg, but you could also use a bar of chocolate broken up into chunks
  • 1 tsp Vanilla essence
  • 260g Carnation condensed milk
  • 35g Icing sugar
  • Sugar coated mini eggs

How You Make Easter Egg Slow Cooker Fudge

I’ve done a little video to show you exactly how to make it, but if you prefer a more formal recipe scroll down.

Method

  1. Put the chocolate into a slow cooker.
  2. Add the vanilla essence and the condensed milk.
  3. Put the slow cooker on a low heat, and leave the lid off.
  4. Stir every 15 minutes (I set a timer on my phone as a reminder).
  5. When the chocolate has all melted (about 30 minutes), add the icing sugar and stir in well.
  6. Continue to stir the mixture every 15 minutes for further 2 hours
  7. When it is done you need to give it a really good stir (about 5 minutes, and it makes your arm ache!). The finished fudge should be nice and thick and have an almost grainy texture
  8. Poor into a tray lined with grease proof paper, leave it to cool for 10 minutes then add your sugar coated eggs pushing them down into the fudge.
  9. Pop into the fridge to cool completely.
  10. After a couple of hours the fudge is ready to cut into chunks and enjoy!

NB. I am a home cook, and have had no formal training in preparing food. So these are just recipes that I use at home for the family. Whilst I have taken time to try and be as accurate as possible, some of the quantities are approximate.  I am always keen to learn, so if you think the recipe can be improved upon please take the time to comment below. I also love seeing your versions.
