MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 14, 2014

"I made this two years in a row. BUT I will have to agree with alirosepetal (May 5, 2014). This year I put in 2 tsp lemon extract and added yellow food color. Everything else was fine, set up fine too. But it did taste like the white chips more than lemon. LAST YEAR'S BATCH- tasted better because I just realized I was to use two bags of the white chips instead of one. I'm anxious to follow the Easy Fudge receipe on the jar of marshmellow cr?me next time. Using white chips, not chocolate. Lemon extract, not vanilla."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 5, 2014

"I followed the directions and I agree it tasted like almond bark, or like eating a handful of white chocolate chips. I would have increased the lemon extract but I think you're better off tweaking the fudge recipe on side of marshmallow cream jar to a lemon version. There was nothing creamy about this fudge or tasty. I served to six families and no one wanted more than one, some didn't finish their small square, we threw the batch in the garbage."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 29, 2014

"I made this for Easter and everybody went crazy for it, even my family members who prefer chocolate desserts. I will definitely be making it again, it couldn't be easier. NOTE: Bitzee used lemon juice and did not get the desired result and rated it two stars. Don't make the same mistake. You must use lemon extract!"
