Hello sugar, I use the same fudge recipe you posted but last Christmas someone posted something about putting a little water in the pan before refrigeration and I can't remember exactly how it went. I asked the question on cookinginthedark at acbradio and my email was sent back undeliverable. Have you heard anything about this method.

I started reading about Intermittent Fasting this week which naturally got me to find a way to make fudge.
I don't understand me, either.
It's the Holiday season.
It's time to make fudge again.
This is SO easy a four-year-old could do it (unless her mom shoos her out of the kitchen so nobody knows how much fudge got eaten in the name of Quality Control).
Slow Cooker Fudge
serves 10 to 20; or 2 on date night
3 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 tablespoon salted butter
cooking spray to spray down the crock
parchment paper or non-stick foil to line a 9 x 9 baking pan
Use a 4-quart slow cooker. If you only have a 6-quart, that's okay, but it will melt faster, so keep an eye on your chocolate.
Spray the crock well with cooking spray
(PS: I recommend using a "traditional" stoneware crock for melting chocolate
-- not one with a metal pot (Ninja, instantpot) because those materials get hotter faster than the ceramic/stoneware does.)
Dump everything into the pot. Cover, and cook on high for about 1 hour, or on low for about 2 hours.
Stir every 30 minutes.
Once the chocolate has lost it's form and can be stirred into a liquid state, spread it out into a lined 9 x 9 baking pan.
Chill in the refrigerator overnight (or at least 4 hours) before cutting into bite-sized squares.
It's perfect. I wondered how the consistency would be without marshmallow fluff, but the condensed milk made the same sort of smooth texture with the chocolate as I wanted.
Because the mixture doesn't need to get boiled to a candy-making boiling point, this is a great recipe for kids.
If you'd like to, go ahead and add chopped nuts or candy canes for a peppermint version.
Long Live Fudge!!
have a happy Wednesday!
happy slow cooking!!
