Or, maybe you just have an insane sugar craving, and you need a quick fix. This is what you make. You need, like, 300 seconds-ish to prep this.
It tastes just like lemon cream pie in a fudge. It starts with cream cheese frosting, white chocolate chips, and a little butter as its base, melted together until smooth. It’s rich and creamy, and full of flavor just between those ingredients. Think about how amazing that sounds: cream cheese frosting and white chocolate chips…. you’ll want to grab a spoon and dive in, but try to restrain yourself. We’re building on this.
Stir in fresh lemon zest, lemon extract, and a ton of crushed Lemon Oreos, and you get lots of lemon flavor! The lemon filling of the cookies adds a whole other level of flavor and creaminess to the fudge, and the cookies themselves add a nice bit of crunch.
Every time I make a new fudge recipe, I say it’s my favorite of the bunch. So I’ll spare you from saying that again, but this Lemon Cream Pie Fudge absolutely ties for first place with my Pina Colada Fudge.
