Easy Lemon Drizzle Gin Fudge Recipe

Jump to Recipe

I’m back with a new gin fudge recipe and honestly, it tastes amazing. This time we’ve ditched the slow cooker and we’re making air fryer fudge! It takes hardly any time at all and tastes just the same, if not better, than if you used a slow cooker. It doesn’t matter if you’re new to using an air fryer or if you know everything about them because this recipe is super easy to make and you’ll be left with an amazing lemon drizzle gin fudge by the end!

If you’ve ever made fudge on the hob you’ll know that it takes forever and you can’t take your eye off of it or it might burn. That’s why the slow cooker is so good for making slow cooker fudge, that being said, air fryer fudge is even easier and takes far less time than both other options and the only part you’ll have to wait for is for it to set in the fridge.

Lemon Fudge Recipe

If you’re making lemon fudge in the air fryer there are a few things you’ll want to know before you start. I would advise that you get silicone moulds to go into your air fryer, I wouldn’t even recommend doing this fudge recipe without them. They make sure your air fryer doesn’t get damaged, they ensure you can take the fudge out of the air fryer and you can leave the fudge to set within that mould while it’s in the fridge. So it’s simple, get silicone moulds for your air fryer. You can get moulds for any type of air fryer as well.

You can see the ingredients below that I’ve used. I don’t believe in always having to buy big name brands for recipes. If you want you can buy Cadbury chocolate etc. but I find the ingredients from Aldi work just as well. I will say that I used Sipsmith London Lemon Drizzle Gin for this recipe and it was superb! So definitely use that one because you don’t want to miss out on the lemon drizzle gin flavour. It’s also a lot cheaper to not worry about name brands so keep that in mind.

I find that the “quality” of ingredients doesn’t really matter when you’re making fudge, there’s no flour needed which we all know there are several thousand types of and white chocolate is white chocolate so you don’t have to get the “correct” type. so if you’re making this lemon fudge recipe, don’t worry too much about the ingredients apart from the gin!

Air Fryer Fudge

I love making fudge because quite frankly, you can’t go wrong. They’re easy to make and I’ve never had a problem making them before. I also love drinking gin so when it came to making this gin fudge in the air fryer, I was totally game. It’s now clear to see that I will be making more fudge in the air fryer. I have the Ninja Foodi Dual Zone Digital Air Fryer AF300UK and it works really well. It also has two draws so if you wanted, you could make two fudges at the same time.

There are loads of recipes you can do in the air fryer, not just this fudge of course. How did we ever function without an air fryer? I will also say that all my recipes are tried and tested so you can be sure that they work. I would hate for someone to make this lemon gin fudge and it not work for them. It might be a quick fudge recipe but it’s no good if you can’t enjoy it.

Equipment I Used To Make This Lemon Fudge

Well, it might be obvious at this point, you will need an air fryer. There are several bits of equipment I used to make this gin fudge and if you have them, you can use them for so many more recipes.

Lemon Gin Fudge Recipe Ingredients

As I’ve said before, don’t go breaking the bank for “the best” ingredients out there. This easy lemon fudge isn’t going to be 100x better if you pay a fortune for the ingredients so don’t stress too much there.

White Chocolate – I use cheap chocolate from Aldi. I call it cheap because they’re 36p (March 2023). You’ll need to get 7. You’ll need 6 for the recipe and 1 to eat while the recipe cooks, or is that just me? This white chocolate lemon fudge is no good without the white chocolate after all.

Condensed Milk – It’s impossible to get condensed milk in Aldi at the moment, they just don’t seem to sell it. So I get it from Tesco which still works out cheaper. Making amazing recipes like this gin fudge doesn’t mean breaking the bank and I know that condensed milk can be expensive if you buy “name brand” and we don’t want to be re-mortgaging a house to make fudge!

Lemons – I used lemons in this lemon fudge recipe, I used the juice in the recipe and used zest on top of the fudge because it makes it look pretty. Get unwaxed lemons though because you don’t want waxy zest.

Lemon Drizzle Gin – If you’re making this air fryer fudge then you’ll want a decent gin. I used the London SipSmith Lemon Drizzle gin in this recipe and it’s divine! I use this gin for my recipes but I think I do want to try other lemon gins so they’re on my Christmas wishlist for sure, what’s your favourite lemon gin?

This isn’t a gin and tonic fudge recipe so there’s no tonic added. I don’t think it needs tonic and the more liquid you add to the fudge means there’s less chance of the fudge setting and you don’t want a sloppy mess when you’re done.

This lemon fudge is enough to keep the whole family happy, it’s also great to take into work for everyone else to enjoy, they’ll probably ask you if you purchased it from the store and you can say nope! Tell them that you made this air fryer fudge at home, from scratch and be the envy of the whole office, what’s not to love?!
