Sinterklaas: Slow Cooker Kruidnoten Fudge

Not only can you use your slow cooker to make dinner. It is great to make certain desserts in it too. You can make fudge in advance and just leave it in the fridge or freezer. It is a large amount of fudge that you will get out of one recipe ;) So please share with your friends for your own safety ;) I made a variation on fudge for the Dutch celebration of Sinterklaas, that will be on the evening of December 5th.

While the fudge is delicious, it has one downside: the cleaning ;) Of course it is a bit messy and sticky ;)

Slow Cooker Kruidnoten Fudge: (serves a lot, 3.5L slow cooker)
- 150 gr white chocolate
- 225 gr milk chocolate
- 1 can sweet condensed milk
- 1 tbsp powdered sugar
- couple handfuls of kruidnoten
- couple handfuls marshmallow

Place all ingredients in the pot and put it one hour on high without the lid. Stir every 10 minutes. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and transfer the liquid. And now for the hard part: leave the fudge overnight in the fridge to stiffen. Cut the fudge the next day with a warm knife.

A note on the marshmallow: ours melted in the fudge, which is delicious, but if you want bits of marshmallow, add it near the end. The kruidnoten you can add whenever you like.


  1. I would not have imagined fudge in the slow cooker. looks easy but oh so tempting. I'll have to suggest this too son. What is kruidnoten?

    1. Kruidnoten are Dutch little cookies. But they can be replaced by gingerbread cookies.
