You can make lemon fudge with:
- Condensed milk
- Evaporated milk
- Coconut oil
- Instant pudding mix (lemon pudding)
- Even without chocolate
After trying all of those versions, I have come to the conclusion that my family’s 2 ingredient lemon fudge ROCKS and beats those recipes!
Pack them in gift boxes to make a wonderful homemade GIFT for Easter or the Christmas holiday season.
Tips for Easy Lemon Fudge Recipe:
- DON’T use homemade lemon frosting because it does not work as well at the store-bought frosting cans.
- Your fudge is only as good as the ingredients you use. Make sure to use HIGH QUALITY white chocolate chips.
- White chocolate can burn very easily. Keep a very close eye on it when you are melting it.
- You need to work QUICKLY because the fudge mixture will start to set quickly.
- To make the fudge look PRETTY, toss some sprinkles on top of the fudge mixture before you chill it.
- Use a SHARP knife to make perfect square pieces.
- You can also use various cutters to make different fudge shapes (I used a square cutter with rounded edges).
- You CANNOT make lemon fudge with lemon juice (real lemon) with my recipe because that will cause the chocolate to seize and create a lumpy mixture.
Other Flavor Variations of Creamy Lemon Fudge:
- Instead of squares, cut bar shapes to make lemon fudge bars. Drizzle some melted white chocolate on top of each bar and toss some sprinkles to make it look pretty.
- Swirl some blueberry jam on top of the fudge to make blueberry lemon fudge.
- To make lemon fudge brownies, spread the fudge mixture on top of a pan of baked brownies and let the fudge set. Slice and enjoy.
- Use your choice of frosting to make any other flavor of frosting fudge.
