Woman makes amazing Cookie Monster fudge in the slow cooker with just a few ingredients – and kids will be obsessed

PEOPLE have been making incredibly tasty and super simple fudge in their slow cookers of late with many experimenting with flavour combinations – including mint, Crunchie, Oreo and even Biscoff. 

But one woman has taken it up a notch and has whipped up her own Cookie Monster version complete with candied eyes and whole cookies – and it's perfect for kids who are fans of the bright blue Muppet.

But while it might seem more complicated than just your average fudge, the clever mum reveals exactly how she did it, and the method – and ingredients – are exactly the same.

Posting to the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK Facebook group, the amateur cook said you need just chocolate, condensed milk, vanilla essence and butter to make up the fudge, in addition to the candied eyes she'd picked up from Home Bargains, blue food colouring and mini cookies to recreate the character's face.

But ingredients aside you'll also need patience because while the fudge is super simple to put together, it will take an hour to cook in the slow cooker and even longer in the fridge to allow it to set.

If you've got the time to wait, and are keen to give it a go, start by throwing the broken up chocolate into the slow cooker and add the butter, condensed milk and the essence.

Cookie Monster Fudge

  • 400g of milkybar chocolate
  • 1 can of 375g condensed milk
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla essence
  • 1 tablespoon of butter

The food lover suggested stirring every 15 minutes for a total of one hour, or until everything has melted and combined well.

Once it's melted, add a few drops of food colouring to create the Cookie monster blue, and pour the mixture into a line tray.

The clever mum then created three rows of "Cookie Monster faces" using the candied eyes, ensuring they were placed appropriately as to accurately represent the characters googly eyes.

And as a mouth, she'd used half a cookie for each before popping the tray into the fridge to set.

Needless to say, her post was met with a huge amount of praise from keen cooks eager to try it themselves.

"Awesome idea my little one would love this," one mum said.

While another wrote: "omg I soooo need to make this."

The idea was so popular in fact, that it's racked up over 2k Facebook likes, and hundreds of comments

And we don't blame them, because it looks incredible.
