Boozy Slow Cooker Salted Caramel Fudge

Boozy Slow Cooker Salted Caramel Fudge

It’s that time of year now when I start to plan what treats we’ll have over the Christmas period. Fudge ticks all the boxes: easy to make, everyone loves it, perfect for gifts, a lovely indulgent treat. What better excuse than Christmas for a boozy slow cooker salted caramel fudge. It’s creamy, sweet and has a lovely warming kick from salted caramel liqueur. I can’t guarantee you’ll want to share this one – hic!

Why slow cooker fudge?

If you make your fudge in the slow cooker it is a lot more difficult to get it wrong. The low and slow heat of the crockpot means you are less likely to burn it on the bottom of the pan, and as long as you keep the lid off the chocolate should not seize either.

Melt the chocolate and caramel together gently in the pot, it’s so simple. If you have your slow cooker out on the counter like I always do, why not put it to good use?

Salted Caramel Liqueur

Have you come across this wondrous liqueur? Creamy and sweet, it’s a great winter warmer. The one I used was a supermarket own brand and I adore it. I also use this salted caramel liqueur to add a kick to slow cooker hot chocolate.

If you prefer Baileys, that would work well too! There’s a lovey new coffee Baileys I’d love to try out that would be great in fudge as well.

Festive Fudge Flavours

I seem to make a new slow cooker fudge every year around this time. Other flavours on the blog which are also great for the festive period include white chocolate with raspberry and pistachio, amaretto with raisin and almond, candy cane, Black Forest. Which do you want to try first? This amaretto one was pretty good, the boozy ones are great for Christmas.

This looks delicious. I’m in the US, can you advise on the size of the tin of caramel? For example, how many ounces or grams? What brand caramel do you use (in case we can get it here too). I do want to try this thank you for posting!

This is so easy and I love fudge with a hint of booze. I’ve never tried making fudge before but as it’s so simple in the slow cooker this is really tempting me as it would be great for Christmas.

Oh, Lucy – what are you doing to my waistline!!!! I made your mincemeat swirls last Boxing Day and they were amazing (even though I forgot about them and they got a bit crispy around the edges). This fudge is definitely something I’ll make this year. How long does it keep? (About 10 mins in my house, probably!) I’m thinking of making at as gifts.
Cheers (literally!)

The fudge turned out perfect and crumbly, just the way I like it. Cutting was difficult given that it was crumbly, but it tasted great.

My eyes lit up when I saw slow cooked salted caramel fudge but was so disappointed with the recipe, white chocolate (yuk) and sorry to say it booze(yuk). How about a nice simple recipe with no booze or the dreaded w chocolate!
