Following on from our Slow Cooker Creamy Nutella Fudge recipe, it felt only natural to create a Ferrero Rocher fudge recipes too. One of our favourite indulgent treats that we could use to make an incredibly indulgent fudge too!

As a family, we love chocolate fudge recipes and could eat them constantly. In fact, there’s always a tub or two of fudge in the fridge! But this Ferrero fudge is perfect for making for an occasion, having part of a buffet spread or for dessert and really enjoying there and then.

Can you vary this easy Ferrero Rocher Fudge fudge recipe?

For this recipe we use pretty cheap milk chocolate and Nutella that we always have in the cupboard. You could use different kinds of chocolate like a hazelnut chocolate or a more expensive milk chocolate but we always find using cheap chocolate – supermarket value or basic ranges – work really well.

You could also stir through some chopped hazelnuts if you wanted just before putting in the pan to set but the addition of Ferrero Rocher chocolates is enough really, it doesn’t need anything else.

Can you make this fudge in the microwave?

Many people make fudge in the microwave but I much prefer the control I have when I make it in the crock pot or slow cooker. If you don’t have a slow cooker or want to save time, make it in the fudge by putting the ingredients in a microwave safe bowl and heating on short bursts in the microwave, stirring in between. Then follow the instructions as per the recipe below.

How long does slow cooker fudge keep for?

Unlike most of our other fudge recipes, this one is best made and eaten within a couple of days. Ferrero Rocher have a fantastic consistency – with that lovely crunch, hazelnut centre and rich chocolate. But, when you cut and refrigerate this fudge, the Ferrero Rocher loses it’s crunch.

With this in mind, it’s best to put the fudge in the fridge to set and then once you cut it, eat it or gift it over the next couple of days. I can guarantee it won’t last that long anyway – everyone will love it!

Can you make slow cooker fudge with evaporated milk?

Our slow cooker fudge works because condensed milk has a really high sugar content, needed to create that beautifully rich fudge. Evaporated milk isn’t the same, doesn’t have that sugar content and isn’t thick enough to help the fudge thicken and set. You can’t use evaporated milk in these recipes – so get some condensed milk instead.

Do you cook slow cooker fudge high or low temperature?

We always cook fudge on a high slow cooker temperature setting and it takes around 40 minutes in total. You could make it on the low setting but it would take longer and would still need to be stirred regularly. You may as well keep the crock pot on high and be done in under an hour!

When cooking, is the slow cooker fudge lid on or off?

When making this slow cooker fudge, you need to remove the slow cooker lid otherwise excess moisture would be retained in the slow cooker pot and the fudge wouldn’t thicken as it needs to.

If you’re looking for other slow cooker fudge flavours to try, there’s our Chocolate Orange Fudge, Eton Mess Fudge and Amaretto and Cherry Fudge. You can find all our fudge recipes so far here.

What equipment do you need to make slow cooker fudge?

Slow cooker fudge doesn’t need anything special to make it, and you probably already have everything you need at home, but this is the equipment we use:

Once you’ve got everything you need to make the fudge you can just keep making it again and again – in so many different flavours too!
