Slow Cooker Black Forest Fudge

Slow Cooker Black Forest Fudge

Christmas means giving presents and what better present than Black Forest fudge with cherries, made in your slow cooker. It would make a perfect homemade gift for your friends and family. Chocolate and cherry is such a classic combination. Ideal for Christmas time and the colder months, as well as the warmer times of year!

I actually made this slow cooker Black Forest fudge back in August but have been saving it until now, so am making up for that now as it is fudge season at last!

  • 400 g chocolate I used Dairy Milk
  • 397 g can of condensed milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 100 g Black Forest flavour icing sugar I used Sugar and Crumbs
  • 100 g glacé cherries mostly chopped, a few halved
  1. Melt the chocolate in the slow cooker with the condensed milk and vanilla extract.
  2. Once it is smooth and silky you can take it out. It only took half an hour on high in my slow cooker, which runs very hot.
  3. Sieve in the icing sugar and beat or whisk well. Stir in the chopped cherries.
  4. Pour the mixture into a lined baking tray. Press the halved cherries on top.
  5. Put the tray in the fridge to chill for a couple of hours.
  6. Remove and chop it up, enjoy!
Recipe Notes

If you want to keep it (and can resist!) it will last for 2 weeks in the fridge in an airtight container.

i want to do this receipe today but can’t get hold of the Black Forest sugar what is the alternative

Lisa Tyrell

Either Sainsburys or Moreisons do a ‘Cherry Cordial’ which is full of flavour as it’s pure cordial not squash.
I might try putting some in an airtight box with the sugar and see if it absorbs the cherry flavour….
Going to make this fudge and make hand made boxes to put it in as gifts.
