Last week was my first post, and I shared that I had purchased a slow cooker. Some of you came up with the most creative names for her- and I have selected the best and put them in a poll. Please vote and help me choose!
It is only fitting that I share a slow cooker recipe for this post- and this one is a winner.
This is Regan’s new favourite recipe.
This ‘clean chocolate fudge’ has no refined sugar, and unlike traditional fudge recipes it doesn’t call for condensed milk. If you are lactose intolerant, buying a good quality dark chocolate without milk should make this a suitable fudge for you to eat (yay!). This is still a pretty decadent treat, so eat in moderation.
It is a super simple recipe, and has been adapted for the slow cooker!
2 1/2 cups of good quality dark chocolate
1/3 cup coconut cream
1/4 cup of honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon of salt (I used Pink Himalyan)
Step 1. Place all ingredients in slow cooker.
Step 2. Put lid on and set on low heat for 2 hours
Step 3. Walk away and forget about it! DO NOT STIR. This was really difficult for me to resist, but I managed and it was worth it.
Step 4. When 2 hours has passed, turn the slow cooker OFF. Remove the lid and leave it to sit open for 1 hour.
Step 5. After cooling for 1 hour, take a nice big wooden spoon and mix constantly for 5 minutes. The mixture will turn from melted chocolate and thicken. It will take on a ganache texture. When it all comes together and is super thick and sticky, it is ready to set.
Optional step: Top with coconut, slivered almonds, walnuts or whatever you’d like!
Step 6. Place in baking tray, lined with wax paper place in fridge until set. I covered mine with cling wrap to help smooth the surface.
Regan’s Thoughts: “*sigh* new favourite! By far this is my new favourite snack. It doesn’t have a strong coconut flavour (surprisingly) it actually tastes and feels like fudge!”
