Slow cooker chocolate fudge

Slow cooker chocolate fudge

This is a really simple fudge recipe that I made for Christmas. It would make a great homemade gift for Valentine’s day or Mother’s day. It only uses 4 ingredients (3 if you stick to just milk chocolate) and is so simple to make. I had always thought making fudge was complicated and required a thermometer. Turns out it is so simple you can make it in a slow cooker. This fudge was delicious too. I let my eldest decorate half of it and left half plain but the options are endless.
