The first thought that comes to our mind when we think of a fudge recipe is chocolate. But what if you had a recipe for fudge candy with sweet and tangy flavors to it? This Lemon Meringue Pie Fudge recipe, for instance, will have you instantly fall in love. Sometimes, it is unfair that lemon dessert recipes are so underrated. The flavors in this simple fudge recipe are perfectly sour and lemony yet balanced with the sweetness of sugar. The delicious crust that is paired with this fudge is quite the twist in this recipe. You’re going to love it. Plus, it’s a no-cook fudge recipe, so that’s even better, right? Add it to your Christmas dessert platter, and your guests cannot deny themselves to this lemony goodness. You are just going to need seven ingredients and five minutes aside to make this recipe. Also, you’ll be happy to know that this recipe is super budget-friendly and very popular among lemon lovers. You can store the fudge in an airtight jar in the fridge.

Always remember to use the specific proportion of ingredients to help the fudge set firm. If there is a discrepancy in the ratio of liquid to dry ingredients, the fudge may not set as per the desired consistency. Cook the mixture as per the instructions to get the precision of the fudge. The fudge when hot will seem a bit runny, but it will set up and become firm as it starts to cool down. The one main thing about this lemon dessert recipe is that it does not use the real lemon juice because it is hard to incorporate lemon juice into the white chocolate ganache. You can still give this fudge a good flavor by adding as much lemon zest as you want and sticking to using the real lemon extract. For best results, the lemon extract has to be from real lemons and not artificial lemon flavor. Lemon is packed with vitamin C and has vital minerals like calcium, potassium, and dietary fiber. Lemon nutrition is quintessential for building healthy immune system because lemon juice is supposed to have antibacterial properties. In fact, it has been shown that if you sip a warm glass of lemon water as soon as you wake up in the morning, it helps flush the toxins and builds a healthy digestive system.

When you’re on a hunt for a good quality white chocolate, the best tip that will come handy is to watch for the kind that has a greater proportion of cocoa butter in it. Several white chocolate brands that claim to be of “high-quality” contain very little cocoa butter and mostly have fillers like milk, oil and sugar in them. The key to delivering optimum white chocolate flavor in baked goods is to use a premium quality white chocolate. If you check the ingredients list, they're labeled as either white baking chips or morsels, and usually may not have hundred percent chocolate. If you are unable to find a good quality white chocolate, you may want to stick to the good old dark chocolate ganache in this recipe.

When there are too many cinnamon based dessert recipes floating around this time of the year, this vibrant and yellow lemon fudge will come to rescue for that cinnamon fixation.
