Chocolate Orange Slow Cooker Fudge Recipe - A Homemade Christmas Gift


Terry's Chocolate Orange Slow Cooker Fudge Recipe - A Homemade & Edible Christmas Gift

After reading this post by Rainy Day Mum, I was really inspired to create my own fudge in the slow cooker - it looked incredibly easy and looked like something the kids could help with. I LOVE Terry's Chocolate Orange and with Christmas around the corner, thought that Terry's Chocolate Orange Slow Cooker Fudge would be perfect to create as a homemade Christmas gift. This was our practice run.

5 - After 2 hours, remove from the fridge and cut into required size. This recipe made enough to fill 2 small Mason jars with a little left over for the helpers.

This recipe can be prepared a fair bit in advance - fudge will keep in an airtight container for 1-2 weeks, in the fridge for 2-3 weeks and in the freezer for up to 3 months (always store in an airtight container).

Kids can help under supervision - Heidi (7) helped to stir the fudge but be warned the slow cooker can get hot.

We were super pleased with the results. Our ingredients cost £10 including the two jars (Sainsburys special offer) - that makes the cost of our gift work out at just £5 per jar - for a homemade gift of this quality, we think it's a real bargain. The fudge is absolutely delicious and I promise it will be well-received by all who tastes it.

  1. I think I'd struggle not to open the slow cooker and take a big old spoonful of it! I'd end up with no mixture left!
