Slow Cooker Candy Cane Chocolate Fudge

Slow Cooker Candy Cane Chocolate Fudge

Slow cooker candy cane chocolate fudge is perfect for the festive season. If you are generous enough to part with it, why not give it as handmade Christmas gifts.

Chocolate fudge is great for homemade gifts at Christmas time. Simply cut into pieces and put it in a pretty cardboard box or cellophane bag and you have a great gift for friends, neighbours and teachers, or a treat for the Christmas break.

The peppermint candy canes are chopped and placed on top of the fudge before it sets. If you really want a peppermint hit from your fudge you could add a small amount of peppermint extract to the fudge when melting it together too.

I’ve used dark chocolate for a really rich chocolate flavour. Other festive fudge flavours which are delicious are white chocolate with pistachios and raspberry, and milk chocolate black forest fudge.

A festive slow cooker chocolate fudge recipe, with candy canes

Course: Dessert
Author: bakingqueen74
  • 300 g extra dark chocolate broken into pieces, 72% cocoa
  • 150 g milk chocolate broken into pieces
  • 397 g can of condensed milk
  • 100 g icing sugar
  • 3 candy canes chopped/crushed
  1. Melt the chocolate in the slow cooker with the condensed milk. Set your slow cooker on high and do not put the lid on. Stir occasionally.
  2. Once it is smooth and silky and melted together, you can take it out. This took approximately 45 minutes in my slow cooker.
  3. Sieve in the icing sugar and beat well.
  4. Pour the mixture into a baking tray or loaf tin lined with baking paper. Smooth the top of the fudge with the back of a hot metal spoon. Scatter the chopped candy canes on top.
  5. Put the tray or tin in the fridge to chill for a couple of hours, for the fudge to set.
  6. Remove from the fridge, and use a sharp knife to cut the fudge into pieces.
Recipe Notes

If you want to make it for gifts, it will last for approx. 2 weeks in the fridge in an airtight container.
