OH FUDGE! WHAT? SPRING FUDGE

I think just about
EVERYONE
associates
FUDGE 
with Christmas.
I know that I always
make several batches
of all different types
of fudge during the
Holiday Season.

I give them to my
enemies friends to 
MAKE THEM FAT-
that way I look thinner 
enjoy.
Pretty smart for a blond, huh?

Anyway,
I have a recipe for
LEMON FUDGE
for Spring.
I'm not sure where it came
from but I have used it for
several years.
It was probably the old
Taste Of Home magazine.
It is so good that you
will be licking the pan.
You will bow down
before me because
I am 
The Fudge Queen.

This is NOT a recipe
for those 
weak-willed people
that cannot refrain from
eating the whole pan...
Nosirreeee..
Here you go-

LEMON FUDGE
1/2 cup REAL butter (no oleo)
One 4.5 oz cook & serve lemon pudding
(do not use instant pudding)
1/2 cup milk
3-3/4 cups confectioner's sugar
1 teaspoon lemon extract

Line a 9" square pan with foil
bringing it up the sides.
Use butter and heavily butter the foil
In large saucepan combine:
Pudding mix
Milk
Butter
Cook and stir over medium heat
until mixture has thickened.
Remove from heat.
Beat in confectionery sugar & lemon extract.
Pour into buttered pan and refrigerate.
Use tinfoil to lift fudge out of pan.
Cut into squares and store in fridge.

Serve to family and friends
and your skinny enemies.
Trust me-
You will have a new
Easter candy tradition.

I have never had lemon fudge but it looks fabulous! I copied your recipe because we are having a fundraiser event soon which has a lemon theme.

Whenever I feel down about my weight, I stand beside my fudge-eating friends and I immediately feel better about myself.

ImSoVintage said...

Unfair to share something so yummy when I have to be on a healthy diet. Wait, I have a really skinny friend who was just bragging about all the weight she lost (you know which friend I mean)I think I'll just email this to her :)

Debby said...

Yum Yum Lemon Fudge.
I think it's a good idea to give to your skinny friends.

Sue (Someones Mom) said...

I have never heard of such a thing, but why not? It sounds really good and it is so pretty! I've saved this one:)

Sharon @ Elizabeth & Co. said...

I love all things lemon and I certainly love fudge, so this sounds like a perfect match!

Zoey said...

Oh, my, I LUV lemon and have never made lemon fudge. I am printing this out right now!

Donna said...

OK, the West Coast Fudge Queen is going to try this one!

I love fudge! I love making it, cleaning up after it is made (oh yummy - lickin' those pans!!) and eating it (although it's not on our diet right now - thinking I need a free day!!)

Lemon anything, anytime is my favorite, so lemon fudge - I may have to send you a thank you for this one!

Blessings,
Donna

KrippledWarrior said...

The only thing I hate more than fudge is lemon fudge. So don't send any to my house at: Santee Ca. lol

NanaNor's said...

Hi, This sounds so yummy but I might just give it to those skinny folk who need some extra fluff-which isn't me!
Thanks for sharing the recipe! Have a great evening.
Hugs, Noreen

Nellie said...

This sounds absolutely delicious!

Patsy said...

Julie Harward said...

Kelly said...

That sure sounds yummy! I love lemon desserts. Your fudge sounds alot like lemon bars. Great idea for Easter!

Tina@WhatWeKeep said...

Lemon fudge- who knew? I love lemon bars and lemon anything. I'm trying to imagine what it tastes like.
It better be good, Diana. If I give up my chocolate for lemon and I'm disappointed...
well, you'll be in big trouble., Miss Fudge Queen.

Have a wonderful week... eating that bit of heaven
