Key Lime Fudge

Yield about 1 pound
Who says fudge has to involve milk chocolate? In the candy category, this Key lime fudge tops our list.

Ingredients

  • 1 (5-ounce) can evaporated milk
  • 1 2/3 cups sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 12 large marshmallows
  • 2 cups white chocolate morsels (we tested with Nestlé)
  • 1/4 cup grated lime rind (about 4 limes)
  • 2 tablespoons Key lime juice

How to Make It

  1. Line an 8" x 8" square pan with aluminum foil; grease foil with butter.

  2. Combine first 3 ingredients in a large heavy saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil; boil 8 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add marshmallows and remaining 3 ingredients to milk mixture; stir until marshmallows and morsels are melted and mixture is smooth. Pour fudge into prepared pan. Cool completely. Cut into 1" squares.

  3. Note: If you can't find Key lime juice, use the same amount of fresh squeezed lime juice. The fudge will be slightly sweeter and less tart.
