Smooth slow cooker fudge


 There's nothing like getting busy in your kitchen after being out of it for so long.  I haven't cooked at night for ages because we made a terrible error in judgement by buying pendant lights with red inners.  Cue:  Red light district in our kitchen and very bad light!

Finally last Friday we had them changed and a few more downlights....
So I got busy in my kitchen that night and made a quick batch of slow cooker fudge.  You can make this sugar, gluten and dairy free by choosing your choc-chips carefully.  Sweet William has some great choc-chips which you could use.  I used what I had - a combination of milk and caramel choc chips (my hubby's fave).

I used this recipe as a guide, but I must say I made my life a little easier because I do not have 6 hours to wait around.  It's super easy and no fuss. The other good thing is no extra butter or sugar too and perfect for last minute gifts for Christmas

Ingredients:
3 cups chocolate chips (I used 2 x Cadbury baking chips, 1 x Nestle Caramel bits)
1/2 cup coconut cream
1/4 cup honey
1 tb vanilla extract

Method:
Turn your slow cooker on low and add all ingredients, give it a stir and put the lid on.

After two hours, take the lid off - don't be scared!

With a whisk, give it a good going over - about 2-3 minutes

Pour into a lined tin, and leave overnight or at least a 4-5 hours until solid.  Lift out and get ready to so slice with a sharp knife.

Slice it up - make bars if you like or you could even press out shapes with cookie cutters, it's a good consistency for that.  Place into airtight container between baking paper.
