Here she goes again with the fudge! Haha. If you’ve followed for a while you’ll know that I have a bit of an obsession with making fudge. It’s just so easy to do and there are so many different varieties to try. Of course because it’s nearly Easter I had to give Mini Egg fudge a try, and oh my goodness it was amazing!
I did upload a video of me making this to Instagram and something I always get asked is whether you can make it if you don’t have a slow cooker, and the answer is yes of course! You could do it in a saucepan on the hob. Just set the heat as low as it will go and follow the instructions below. Just be careful of it overheating and sticking to the bottom of the pan. You can also make it in the microwave. I would recommend short bursts in the microwave followed by plenty of stirring. Let me know if you’ve done it this way before, I’d love to know how it turned out.
Here’s what you will need to make Mini Egg slow cooker fudge…
- 500g white chocolate
- 1 tin of sweetened condensed milk (397g)
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
- Mini eggs
- Switch your slower cooker to the low setting.
- Pour in the tin of condensed milk, then add the butter and chocolate.
- Stir the fudge mixture every 15 minutes for one hour, with the lid off.
- Towards the end of the hour stir in your Mini Eggs. It’s up to you how many you use, but as a rough guide I’d say two of the 80g bags should be enough.
- Line a tin or dish with foil and pour in your fudge mixture.
- Decorate the top with more Mini Eggs, the more the merrier!
- Once completely cooled, pop your fudge in the fridge until it’s set (ideally overnight) and then chop up into squares. Enjoy!
