Pink lemonade is one of those flavors that makes me think of summer! And boy am I thinking about summer. This weekend the weather was gorgeous here in Ohio. And of course today, it’s cold. Hello midwest weather!

So I play mind games with my food, trying to trick myself that summer is here!

Of course it doesn’t work, but the food is absolutely delicious!

Have you seen those Duncan Hines frosting creations flavor packets in the stores yet? I recently started using them, of course I’ve yet to use them for frosting! But this month you can find 4 of the special flavors in the stores. Stock up, because after March they will be gone! You can find fruit punch, peaches and cream, key lime and of course, pink lemonade. I was lucky enough to get a nice package from Duncan Hines with all these goodies to use, and it included the 4 flavors above!

Afraid you won’t find them in the stores? Don’t worry!

**You can also substitute pink lemonade KoolAid mix in this recipe!**

  1. Hi Aimee,

    I’ve prepared it following your recipe and my kids want the fudge every day now:)

    Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe.

  2. Did you only use 1/2 of the koolaid packet in each part of your recipe , since a koolaid envelope has more than twice as much as the creations packet?

    1. Yeah, I would start with half the package, see what kind of coloring it gives the fudge….but I’m pretty sure half packet would be perfect!

  3. I just wanted you to know that I made this recipe (along with 11 others) for a “Summer Tastes of Fudge” demonstration for our women’s organization and I (and everyone else!) loved it! Out of all the fudge recipes I made, this one went together best, was the perfect consistency, cut smoothly and stayed sharp (not melty out of the fridge) and was (in my opinion) by far the prettiest! I couldn’t find Duncan Hines Frosting Creations packets anywhere so I used Pink Lemonade Kool-Aide packets instead and they worked perfectly! The flavor was very tart – almost like a starburst – BUT IT’S FUDGE!!! Awesome recipe, no kidding! Thanks so much! I will make this often!

    1. Thanks for stopping over and letting me know! I’ve used the Kool-Aid packets too, haha!! Glad the fudge was a big hit!

  4. I made this and loved it! It kind of tastes like a strawberry cream sickle to me though instead of pink lemonade. But still so delicious!

  5. I making this fudge for a breast cancer benefit for my best friends mother, and it is in a few weeks. Would it be ok to freeze until then?

    1. I think it’s definitely better tasting when refrigerated, not frozen. The key is to make sure the container is airtight so the fudge doesn’t dry out. I usually use ziploc freezer bags, squeeze ALL the air out, then store in the refrigerator for up to two or three weeks.

  6. I wonder if any of your visitors have tried this recipe with a different frosting flavor? I love coffee and I’m thinking of using the mocha instead of pink lemonade. I’ve read comments about the mocha flavor and most everyone says that it has a good coffee taste to it.

    1. This fudge would be perfect with a different flavor! The mocha is a delicious option too. Please let me know if you make it, I imagine it’s going to be delicious.

    1. At least one to two weeks in an airtight container (or ziploc) in the refrigerator! Enjoy!

  7. I just like the helpful info you supply on your articles.

    I will bookmark your weblog and check again here frequently.

    I am quite sure I’ll learn lots of new stuff proper here! Best of luck for the next!

  8. I need these in my life, Aimee! YUM! And they look so pretty too : )

  9. I must be living under a rock because never in my life have I’ve seen these frosting creations!!! I’m so intrigued.

  10. On the pink lemonade fudge recipe it says to mix in the Duncan pink lemonade packet in two different places does that mean I need to use two packets?

  11. My husband LOVES pink lemonade, so I’m sure this would go over pretty well at our house. Looks delicious!

  12. Yum! This would be a pretty treat to make for my daughter’s birthday parties. She always has a pink theme. Thanks for sharing, Aimee! 🙂
