Easy Strawberry or Lemon Fudge

by Laura

Today I have a yummy fudge recipe for you.  It is so simple and foolproof plus it only takes 2 ingredients.  It is similar to the foolproof peanut butter fudge recipe I shared with you at Christmas.  That one used a tub of vanilla frosting and peanut butter.  This recipe uses strawberry or lemon frosting with a package of vanilla chips.

You can make it any flavor just based upon the flavor of frosting you use.  I thought lemon and strawberry flavors would be perfect for Mother’s Day.  You could even make a batch of each and swirl them together for a strawberry lemonade version.  Out of the two flavors lemon was my favorite.  To package the fudge, cut the pieces of fudge into small squares and place them in mini muffin liners.  Then place them all in a container tied with a bow.  This is another item that would be perfect to serve at a baby/wedding shower as a dessert or favor too!

Easy Strawberry and Lemon Fudge



  • 1 (12 oz) bag of white or vanilla chips
  • 1 tub (1 lb) Strawberry or Lemon Frosting
  • food coloring, if needed (I add 2 drops of yellow to the lemon version for a brighter yellow color)


  1. Line a 9 x 9 inch dish with foil and set aside.
  2. In a microwave safe bowl, add the vanilla chips. Microwave for 30 seconds followed but 10 second intervals until smooth stirring each time.
  3. Add the frosting to the melted chips and stir until well combined. Add food coloring if needed.
  4. Pour into pan and spread until even. Allow to set for 30 minutes.
  5. Remove fudge from the pan using foil and cut into squares.


For long term storage, keep in the refrigerator. Then bring out of the fridge about 30 minutes before eating.

Hmmm I wonder if this would work with the new Duncan Hines flavor creations frosting. I see no reason it wouldn’t but I’m curious to try!

This looks yummy and simple. Next week is Teacher Appreciation week at my son’s school and he is supposed to take a “sweet treat” in for his teachers one day. This will be perfect!!!
