If you’ve followed me for a while you will probably have seen my slow cooker fudge recipes before. I used to be a little bit obsessed with making fudge because, well, it’s delicious and really easy to make. But also because it’s just so much fun experimenting with different flavours, colours and toppings.
I realised that I haven’t actually made any fudge since last September! So I decided to have a go at a new flavour. I wanted to try either mint choc chip or lemon meringue and after running a poll on Instagram, the clear winner was mint choc chip.

If you don’t know what slow cooker fudge is, it’s not technically proper fudge as it isn’t made the traditional way using cream and sugar. It’s essentially two main ingredients that you can then experiment with by adding different flavours, colours etc. I make mine in the slow cooker, but you can also do it in the microwave if you don’t own a slow cooker.
- 500g white chocolate
- 1 tin of condensed milk (397g)
- 1 tablespoon butter
- Peppermint flavouring
- Green gel food colouring
- Dark chocolate chips for decoration
- Turn your slower cooker on to the low setting.
- Pour the condensed milk, butter and chocolate (broken up) into your slow cooker.
- Stir the fudge every 15 minutes for an hour, with the lid off.
- Towards the end of the hour I added the peppermint flavouring. I used 5 teaspoons but I would suggest starting with a couple and tasting as you go, as the flavouring that you use might be more intense that the one I used.
- At the end of the hour add your food colouring. It’s up to you how much you use, but I would recommend you start with a little and slowly add more depending on the colour intensity you want.
- Line a tin or dish with foil and then pour in your fudge mixture.
- Sprinkle with chocolate chips.
- Once cooled, pop your fudge in the fridge until completely set (ideally over night) and then cut into squares.
Honestly this is a really tasty fudge and is definitely my favourite one so far. If you’re a fan of fudge, and mint choc chip I would 100% recommend giving this a go. If you do, let me know how it turned out. I would love to know what you think!
