Key Lime Fudge

Vacation has ended and all I want is more fudge. See, I have this philosophy about vacation. It’s called, “I must eat fudge at every little shop I find.” My other one is “ice cream should be eaten daily on vacation.” What do you think? Good philosophies right?

I seriously walked into half a dozen fudge shops or more last week, wanting to see what everyone offers. Plus, nearly all of them give little bite sized samples to taste for free. And remember, I’m cheap. So yeah, I tasted. I also bought. And ate. And tasted. And bought. And ate.

And now, I came home and made my own new version of fudge. I had never made key lime pie before, but this fudge is really yummy!

I also came home from vacation to some really great news. Did you all hear about the Fairy Hobmother? Well, I was visiting a website one day, and she had mentioned that this Fairy Hobmother will grant wishes to people who leave comments. I was very skeptical, but played along.

Guess what? I got home from vacation and in my email was a message from David (yeah I know, a man as a Hobmother???) and he told me I won a giftcard to Amazon. My wish for a new ice cream maker has been granted! It gets better folks, if YOU leave a message on THIS post, YOU are eligible to have your wish granted. Be sure to tell him what you wish for! And this is real, I already got my money, I was skeptical too!
Thank you Appliances Online!!!

Key Lime Fudge
by Shugary Sweets
  • 2- 11oz bags white chocolate morsels
  • 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 5 key limes, zested and juiced
  • 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
Melt morsels with condensed milk on low heat until completely smooth. Whisk in lime juice and lime zest. Pour into a parchment paper lined 13x9 or 8x8 pan (for thicker fudge). Immediately sprinkle with graham cracker crumbs (pressing lightly so they stick into the hot fudge).

    Key Lime Fudge sounds awesome – love key lime pie! And man – funny you should say about your wish – I need a new blender like you wouldn’t believe. Kim told me she makes smoothies for her kids everyday – I make them about twice a year because my blender can’t even crush frozen blueberries!!! I end up holding the whole blender sideways and shaking it to try and help it along!! They beg for smoothies all the time!

    Jordan- you forgot your wish!
    Kari- I make smoothies daily as well, you MUST get a new blender. I’ve already spent my $50 Amazon card, but not telling what I bought yet :)

    Oh.My.Goodness…key lime fudge!?! Sounds simply amazing! I would probably use a gift card toward a new lens for my camera!

    This fudge looks great. I’ve been looking for a key lime recipe that doesn’t have to be refrigerated. I wish for a food processor.

  6. posted Aug 17, 2011 at 2:05 pm

    Emily, this doesn’t need to be refrigerated, although it tastes really good cold. It tastes good either way, but more “Pie-ish” when cold. Make sense?

    As I read this post, all I could think about was these would make AWESOME key lime truffle centers!!!! How about it???
    I love when little wishes come true!!

  9. posted Aug 17, 2011 at 4:05 pm

    Addie, I honestly thought about it. You could freeze the bowl of “fudge” for about 30 minutes, then scoop into balls and dip in white chocolate, sprinkle with grahams. But, sadly, I was too lazy. And hungry for fudge! They would make AMAZING truffle centers. Try it, and let me know what you think!

    Yummy! Sounds refreshing….I think I would wish for a bigger 7 qt crockpot, because my 5 qt is simply not big enough sometimes.

    I Love anything key lime. I would wish for a deep fryer…thanks for the recipe…

  12. posted Aug 17, 2011 at 6:03 pm

    This looks incredible! I could use a giftcard as well and I’d put it towards a new camera. I’m saving up and hope to get one next summer.

  13. posted Aug 17, 2011 at 6:04 pm

    I cannot wait to make this fudge. I too thought about how great this would be as a truffle!
    Congrats on getting your wish granted, its the small things that make life a little sweeter. I’m needing a new blender, I keep hoping they will go on sale, but you know how that goes.
    Have a wonderful day!

    And congrats on your new Ice Cream maker! :)

    *If I had a wish it would be for a New Kitchen Aid Mixer! (I have had this one for 6 yrs and it is on it’s last leg) :)

    Oh, wow! How fun that you got your wish granted. See, I knew that it was okay to still believe in magic as a grown-up. :)

    I think I would wish for a food processor…I always *crave* fresh pesto, but I’ve got nothing to grind up my pine nuts with. And crushing my graham crackers in a Ziplock bag to make cheesecake crust is sadly time-consuming…

    P.S. This fudge looks delicious! Definitely a lighter and zestier take.

    Ooooh! Recently discovered your blog, and LOVING the daily posts :) So far, my favourite one has to be for the broo-kies – just DYING to try them! :)

    SUPER excited about the wish-granting too! If I had to wish for something, it would probably be a hand blender (MUST HAVE for soups!) My mum knicked my last one :(

    Looking forward to the forthcoming blogs… 😀

    Love you blog. Can’t go wrong with donuts, but I ended up here because of your post on apple nachos. Cannot wait to try these, especially as Fall starts rolling in!
    If there is a blender that exists, somewhere in this universe, that would actually make smoothies without requiring me to stop and shove down the ingredients 1,000 times, and withstand the smell and noise of burning metallic parts … that’s what I would want.
    But, I would also need someone to tell me what blender would actually perform because I couldn’t handle any more blender letdowns.
    Do I really have to spend $300? Because, as much as I want that, i really don’t want that to be me sole Christmas gift one year, you know?

  27. posted Aug 18, 2011 at 4:28 pm

    Regmoses- thanks for coming by! As for a blender, I have an Oster Fusion, and I love it. We make smoothies every morning and it does a great job. It’s about 4 years old, I got it at Target, probably for about 70 dollars?

    Oh, yum! I’ve never seen any fudge other than chocolate or peanut butter… Can’t wait to try this! What a great summertime version 😀

    What a great idea for fudge! I’m not a big chocolate lover but I love fruit so this is perfect. I need a new food processor! My just spins the food around and doesn’t chop or blend it. Help!

    I love, love, love your fudge recipes. I whipped up the pb fudge and cookies and cream fudge last night for gift bags. Next up is this key lime. I wondered how the graham crackers held up though. I’m looking at freezing the fudge until I have a chance to distribute all of it. Do you think the grahams would turn soggy?

      So I did end up leaving off the graham crackers. I can tell that it would be a fabulous addition, but the fudge is still amazing. Thanks for another winning recipe!!
