Creamy Lemon Fudge

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 2 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup evaporated milk
  • 8 ounces white chocolate, chopped into chunks
  • 1/2 cup butter (4 ounces or 8 tablespoons), cut into 8 tablespoons
  • 4 teaspoons lemon extract
  • Zest from 1 lemon
  • Few drops of yellow food coloring (optional)


Line an 8x8 pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a large saucepan, stir together the sugar and evaporated milk. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly until it reaches a rolling boil. Turn the heat down slightly to medium-low and continue to stir while boiling until a candy thermometer reaches 234F degrees (roughly 5-6 minutes). If it begins to brown and/or stick to the bottom, turn the heat down, but it is important to keep it at a boil.
Once the mixture reaches 234F degrees, turn off the heat and quickly beat in white chocolate, butter, lemon extract, and zest until the chocolate and butter are fully melted. The mixture should be thick and smooth. If desired, beat in the food coloring.
Immediately pour into the 8x8 pan and smooth it evenly. Let cool at room temperature for at least 2 hours or until firm. Remove from the pan and cut into squares.
