Lemon meringue fudge

Last year I made Eton mess fudge which was strawberry and meringue flavoured fudge, which went down a treat. So I thought it was high time I made some more!
This time I went for a soft creamy lemon meringue fudge...

Tips...
You must use a candy thermometer as making fudge is an exact science
You can use a heavy based saucepan if you do not have a jug
Remember the mixture gets very hot, so please take care

Method

Lemon meringue fudge

  1. Line a 20cm (8") square pan with baking parchment

  2. Place the butter, sugar, milk, cream and condensed milk in a heavy based jug

  3. Stir using a wooden spoon over low heat until sugar has dissolved

  4. Now turn up heat to medium and bring mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally so mixture does not stick to bottom of pan

  5. Place candy thermometer in jug and leave until mixture heats to "soft ball", 240 deg F

  6. Remove from heat

  7. Using an electric whisk or food mixer, beat mixture for about 15 minutes until it loses its gloss and starts to lightly crumble

  8. Add lemon curd and broken meringue pieces, beat mixture for about ten minutes until it loses its gloss

  9. Pour mixture into prepared pan

  10. Leave to set for a few hours

  11. Cut into small squares

  12. Store in airtight container in fridge
