Regular readers will know that I am a little bit obsessed with making fudge in my slow cooker. I’ve been making it for years now as it’s super easy to do and there’s so many different variations to try. Over the years I’ve tried many flavours including mint choc chip, candy cane, white chocolate and cranberry, pumpkin spice and many more!
Lemon meringue fudge has been on my list for a while and as we are currently in lockdown I thought now was the perfect time to give it a go. It turned out really well and I think it has to be my favourite fudge flavour so far! If you like lemon you will absolutely love this, trust me!
Here’s what you will need to make lemon meringue slow cooker fudge…
- 500g white chocolate
- 1 tin of condensed milk (397g)
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 4 teaspoons of lemon extract
- Zest of half a lemon
- Switch your slower cooker on to the low setting.
- Pour in the tin of condensed milk, then add the butter and chocolate pieces.
- Stir the fudge mixture every 15 minutes for one hour, with the lid off.
- Towards the end of the hour add in the lemon extract. I added four teaspoons which for me was perfect, but if you want a more subtle lemon flavour I would go with three teaspoons.
- Grate in the zest of half a lemon and stir well.
- Line a tin or dish with foil and pour in your fudge mixture.
- Sprinkle with broken up meringue pieces.
- Once completely cooled, pop your fudge in the fridge until it’s set (ideally overnight) and then chop up into squares.
