Ingredients

  • Chocolate chips- You will need to use white chocolate.
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk- This will help with the consistency of the recipe.
  • Butter- Use unsalted to control the salt in the recipe.
  • Lemon Juice- Use fresh lemon juice for the best flavoring.
  • Lemon Zest- Be sure to zest your lemons before juicing them.

How to Make Lemon Fudge

Use parchment paper to line an 8×8 inch square pan.

In a medium pot, add the chocolate chips, milk, lemon juice, 2 tbsp lemon zest, and butter and combine over low to medium heat.

Continue to mix until the ingredients are melted.

Add the batter into the prepared pan and top with some lemon zest.

Place the pan onto the counter to set overnight.

When the fudge is hardened, cut into squares.

Serve and Enjoy!

What Makes This Lemon Fudge So Easy to Make?

This recipe is so easy to make because of the short list of ingredients. For flavoring, you will only use some lemon juice and lemon zest. Then, you just combine your ingredients and leave them at room temperature overnight.

Should I use real lemons or lemon extract to flavor my fudge?

For the best-enhanced flavor, you will want to use real lemon juice for this recipe. You can use extract, but I would recommend pure extract for the best flavoring. Although, it won’t have the same kick to it as the real lemons will.

    Perfect if you like sweeter fudge. I added an extra 2 tablespoons of lemon juice to mine to add more tang and it tasted just like lemon cheesecake

  2. I made this fudge exactly what it called for. It taste delicious but was tacky. Should it be like this? I thought after sitting overnight it would hardened more.

    I love this recipe. I used Ghirardelli white chocolate. It was easy to make, and the texture was creamy.
