Brace yourself. I’m about to make a declaration. An announcement. It’s huge.

Are you ready???

This Lemon Meringue Fudge is the best fudge I have ever made.”

I know. It’s hard to believe. I mean. I’ve made Root Beer Fudge. Cinnabon Fudge. Cookies and Cream Fudge. Strawberry Swirl Fudge. So many flavors of fudge. I even have a guide for how to make fudge.

But yes, this has to be my favorite. Granted, I’m a little partial because it’s lemon. With homemade lemon curd.

Make it for yourself for Mother’s day. Or Father’s day. Or Easter. Or just because. You’ll understand when you taste it, why it’s a favorite of mine.

How to make Lemon Meringue Fudge

If you love Lemon Meringue pie, this Lemon Meringue Fudge is even better. Sweet fudge topped with marshmallow "meringue", lemon curd, and graham crackers!

First, make some homemade lemon curd. If you choose NOT to make homemade, you can buy it in the store. Or use a thick lemon pie filling!

Next, line a 9-inch square baking dish with parchment paper.

PRO TIP: Use binder clips (or clothespins) to secure parchment to pan to keep it snug. Set aside.

Next, in your stand mixer bowl, add white chocolate chips, 1 jar of marshmallow cream (7 oz size), and lemon zest. Set aside.

In a saucepan, melt butter with sugar, heavy cream, and a pinch of salt. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture begins to boil.

Boil for 5 minutes, and remove from heat.

Pour hot mixture over morsels in mixing bowl, using the whisk attachment, blend until smooth. This will take about one minute. Fold in 2 Tbsp lemon curd (or lemon pie filling) and mini marshmallows. 

Spread fudge into prepared baking dish.

Top fudge with lemon curd and crushed graham crackers. Chill for 3 hours, until fudge has set completely.

Cut into bite sized pieces when ready to serve. This fudge is best served chilled! ENJOY.

Can fudge be frozen?

In general, yes. But today’s recipe is unique with the lemon curd and graham crackers on top. If you choose to freeze this fudge, DO NOT top with the extra curd or crackers. 

Instead, once the fudge has set up, remove from pan and slide into a freezer safe ziploc bag. 

When ready to use, thaw in refrigerator overnight. Remove from bag and top with lemon curd and graham crackers. Slice and enjoy!
