Line a tin with parchment paper – I use a 7×10″ Brownie Tin as it makes a nice depth of fudge!
Put the White Chocolate, Condensed Milk, and Lemon Extract into a heavy based pan – melt on a low heat, stiring often so that the chocolate doesn’t catch on the bottom and burn and so that all the ingredients mix together well.
(If making your Fudge slightly more yellow, stir it in now!) Once melted, tip in the sifted icing sugar and combine well, it make take a bit of beating.
Pour in most of the crushed Meringues and quickly stir through – pour into the tin and smooth over the mixture. Sprinkle on the rest of the Meringues and press into the top of the fudge and store in the fridge for at least 3-4 hours to set, or overnight!
Once set – remove from the tin and cut into the squares (I cut 1″ squares) , return to the fridge for another couple of hours to finish setting – ENJOY!
This recipe will last better in the fridge for up to 2-3 weeks if it manages to last that long – you can also easily half or double the recipe, the setting times will just change slightly!
I used the box of meringues you can buy at a supermarket for this one – I know its SO easy to make your own Meringues at home, but the ones you can buy are crunchy and the perfect texture for this. You don’t want Meringues that are too soft!
I recommend something like THIS for the food colouring!
Using icing sugar is optional - but without I would use 100g more chocolate!
