The other day, a friend on my Facebook posted that her husband was awesome enough to surprise her with key lime fudge, and I thought, AWESOME IDEA!! I have only made fudge a handful of times, and since I still had no idea what to bring to the kids' next swim party, I knew I had to give this concoction a try (Thanks Brittney, if you happen to read this!)
As always, I googled around for a recipe, and settled on this one. Unfortunately, with the limited selection I have, I had to use regular limes (and yes, I'm still calling it Key Lime Fudge just because I can), but I think it still turned out pretty good. The only thing I think I would change in the future is perhaps adding just a tad bit more lime juice, but otherwise, this was a really fun and summery fudge!
Key Lime Fudge
1 (5-ounce) can evaporated milk
1 3/4 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
12 large marshmallows
2 cups white chocolate chips
1/4 cup lime rind, grated (about 4 limes)
2 tablespoons key lime juice
1. Line an 8x8 pan with foil and grease the foil with butter.
2. Combine the milk, sugar and salt in a large, heavy saucepan and cook over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil; stirring constantly. Once mixture begins to boil, cook it for 8 minutes, stirring constantly.
3. Remove from heat and stir in the marshmallows, chocolate, lime rind and lime and mix well until mixture is melted and smooth.
4. Pour into prepared pan and cool completely.
5. Cut into 1-inch squares to serve.
