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!
Making fudge in your slow cooker is child's play and this cherry and chocolate flavour is very popular.
- 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
Melt the chocolate in the slow cooker with the condensed milk and vanilla extract.
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.
Sieve in the icing sugar and beat or whisk well. Stir in the chopped cherries.
Pour the mixture into a lined baking tray. Press the halved cherries on top.
Put the tray in the fridge to chill for a couple of hours.
Remove and chop it up, enjoy!
If you want to keep it (and can resist!) it will last for 2 weeks in the fridge in an airtight container.
