We’ve made fudge a few times and love it. If you don’t want to eat a whole batch yourself, share some with friends or get the kids to make some and turn it into tasty homemade festive gifts.
Doing it in the slow cooker makes it deliciously smooth and creamy but if you don’t have one simply pop it in a heatproof bowl and gently heat it over a pan of simmering water.
This time,to make it a bit more special we added some Maltesers. The added crunch is a really tasty element, it also makes it look more interesting. The added sprinkles on top were just to make it fun and festive!
Break the chocolate up
Get your children to help you break up the chocolate into small pieces. We also chopped the pieces up a little more to help it melt a bit quicker.
Add it to your slow cooker or crockpot.
Add the remaining ingredients
Get your kids to help you add the vanilla extract, butter and condensed milk to your slow cooker.
Give everything a good mix.
Cook the Maltesers fudge
Leave the fudge to cook on a low heat for around 2 hours. Stir it with a non stick spoon every 15 minutes or so.
Leave the Malteser fudge to set
Line an 8 inch baking tray with baking paper. You can use a larger or smaller tin if you want thicker or thinner fudge. Leave it to cool a little before sprinkling the Maltesers on top. Push a few into the fudge as well so you have some in the middle when you cut into it. If you want to make it a bit more festive, add some sprinkles on top as well.
Put the Malteser fudge in the fridge for a few hours until it has set.
Cut into small squares and enjoy.
