Ingredient Notes

Ingredients needed for pink lemonade fudge.
  • Marshmallow Creme. Also called “fluff”, this ingredient helps give the fudge a soft melt-in-your-mouth texture.
  • Kool-Aid Pink Lemonade Mix. You will need one packet (0.23 ounches) of lemonade mix for this recipe.
  • White Chocolate. You’ll need white chocolate chips AND a bag of white chocolate melting wafers. The melting wafers are used to drizzle over the fudge, as we find they do a better job than the morsels.
