  3. Sheryl,
    I never saw my momma make fudge that didn’t come out of the microwave. She would start with a basic powdered sugar, butter, cocoa powder (don’t mix before microwaving) and then add in the goodies after nuking it. From this simple start she would add one or two more things to a batch to make several different kinds. She made rocky road, orange (adding orange extract), marachino cherry, walnut… i think anything she could get her hands on. Your lemon fudge brings back some sweet memories, thank you!!

    • Hi Janet. You can but it won’t give you as much flavor as the extract. Maybe if you also add some lemon zest that might pump up the flavor. Did you check Walmart? They have a great assortment of extract flavors.

  4. I can’t find real white chocolate chips where I live, so I purchased white chocolate in block form. How many ounces do I use in place of the 10 oz bag plus 1 cup called for in your

  5. Got the fudge in the fridge now!! Mixed it in a bowl instead of the 4 C measuring cup as I needed more room. Didn’t add food coloring or sprinkles but topped it with freshly grated lemon zest. I prefer it a bit more tart. Still pretty in the pan!!

  6. Oh Wow!! I have been making fudge for a LONG time, and usually making about 50 lbs per season, (I used to manage a satellite Blood Bank) and give it to everyone that stopped by! I was kind of dreading this year, since I broke both of my elbows this summer, and was afraid that I would not be able to do the heaving stirring that is usually required. My Great-grandson and I just made this recipe, and LOVE it! I think that I will be able to carry on the tradition, with this recipe!! Thank you!

  7. My lemon tree just produced close to 100 lemons. Love to try this fudge with my lemons. Your recipe calls for lemon extract. If I wanted to use just true lemon juice – how much would I need do you suppose? Thanks.

    • Hi Donna, I think you would have to stay true to the measurement of 1½ teaspoons whether that’s extract or juice. Which may not be enough juice to make that much of a difference. If you were to also add lemon zest to the recipe that would help add a pop of flavor.
