June 9, 2016

Dulce de leche is the South American name for caramelised milk. This fudge has that same delicious flavour.

  • Cook: 1 hr 30 mins
  • Yields: 36 pieces


600g white chocolate melts

1 400g can Nestle Top n Fill (caramelised condensed milk)

1 T butter

1 T brown sugar

1 T golden syrup (optional)


1Add all ingredients into slow cooker.

2Heat on Low with no lid, stirring every 15 minutes for 90 minutes.

3Pour into square tray and refrigerate until set.

4Cut into pieces to serve, store in fridge.


1The golden syrup gives a very strong flavour to the fudge and can be omitted if you prefer.

A larger slow cooker will cook hotter – so faster
You could use another container inside yours though if you wish to keep it more contained so to speak

I have a 5l slow cooker. Will this work in that or should I put it in a container in the slow cooker?

It may solve the grainy issue πŸ™‚ If not it will only be a few sugary crystals in the fudge which wont be bad πŸ™‚

I have a tin of caramel I made in slow cooker but it has a grainy texture if I use it in this fudge recipe, do you think the fudge will turn out grainy or smooth?

First time making fudge in the slow cooker. Actually first time making anything sweet in the SC! This was so easy and I’m planning on making more. These set very well and recieved thumbs up from both Miss 20 and 17. (I didn’t use the Golden Syrup).

Sickly sweet and didn’t set properly.

Yes this top’n’fill is already caramel. So if you used regular condensed milk yes you’d have to caramelise it first πŸ™‚

Hi. Just wondering if you have to pre caramelise the milk? Or can you just throw it in runny as with all the other fudge recipes?

Creamy luscious texture! So easy! Recommend this one for a simple fudge everyone will like.

You can remelt it, add the chocolate and reset it πŸ™‚

Hi mine won’t set, is it because I didn’t add full amount of chocolate or something else and can I fix it. Thank you

Made this at Christmas and used the caramel made by cooking the condensed milk in slow cooker.
It was amazing 😁

This mixture split – maybe because my slow cooker is too hot and it was a super hot day? I followed what a previous commenter did – added a splash of milk and then used hand beaters to mix and the result was perfect! I used caramel made in the slow cooker from condensed milk – YUM!

Could this also be made with brown (dairy milk chocolate and ordinary condensed milk. Just wondering if anyone has tried it

This is super easy to make. I’ve made it twice now and it’s worked both times. This will be my go to dessert-treat from now on. Highly recommend you give it a try!

Currently have this one setting in fridge, it’s going to be very hard not to eat any as it’s a gift πŸ˜‚

Made this last night as gifts for my girls teachers for the end of the year and it is absolutely devine! Will be making this fudge regularly for sure, I left out the golden syrup ad I didn’t want it to overpower the caramel flavour πŸ™‚


May 22, 2017

Could you make the recipe based on if I needed to make 24

Fantastic πŸ™‚

I made this last night. It split/separated, my fault I’m sure, but it came back together beautifully when I beat it with electric beater and a splash of milk. Set perfectly, and it delicious!

If I double the quantity, how long should I cook it for?

Loved this! So easy to make. I gave some to 2 friends and they both said its the best they’ve had and I don’t think they were just being nice! Definitely making again.
