Slow Cooker Fudge: An Easy Homemade Christmas Gift

I have been wanting to make slow cooker fudge for ages. I had mainly put off doing so as I feared I would scoff the lot. However, this week I finally gave it a go. It is good! My fear was not unfounded. I used this Kidspot recipe as a guide, along with it's helpful hints and tips.

To give it a Christmas twist, I decided to add crushed candy canes, as well as sugar snowflakes that I found in the supermarket baking aisle.

When I say that it is a slow cooked recipe, don't be fooled and think you can chuck it in the slow cooker, leave it for a couple of hours and hey presto you have fudge. It is more a means of cooking it slowly and you will need to stir it every 15 mins or so and keep the lid off.

Personally I think this would make a lovely gift for anyone with a sweet tooth.

  5. Absolutely fascinated that you can make fudge in a slowcooker - sounds so much easier than the constant stirring and steam with the traditional method on the hob. Looks and sounds absolutely scrummy Louise,
