Key Lime Fudge

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!

Key Lime Fudge

Key Lime Fudge


  • 2- 11oz bags white chocolate morsels
  • 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 5 key limes, zested and juiced
  • 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs


  1. 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).
  2. Enjoy!

  1. Yum!! Thank you for sharing. I’m totally going to pin this. And congrats on getting your wish granted!

  2. 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!

  3. 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 πŸ™‚

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

  5. 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. 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?

  7. Oh! I love key lime ANYTHING!

    Stop by and link up at What’s Cooking Wednesday!

    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. 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!

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

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

  12. 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. 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!

  14. Amber Filkins

    I am looking forward to trying this fudge recipe, it sounds delicious! I hope I get my new blender wish granted! I make smoothies for the whole family every morning and my blender gave up 3 days ago. I am jonesin’!

  15. Kathy Brown-Lowery

    O Fairy Hobmother, I sure would like a new standmixer.

  16. Oh these sound totally like something my hubby would enjoy…I’m going to have to try it out:-) Congrats on your winnings…so fun!!! Please fairy hobmother, grant me a cool waffle iron!!!!

  17. Oh heavens this looks great Aimee!
    And congrats on your new Ice Cream maker! πŸ™‚

    *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) πŸ™‚

  18. 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. πŸ™‚

    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.

    I am making this on Friday! My parents are coming over for dinner and key lime pie is their favorite! I am sure this dessert will be a huge hit. Thanks Aimee for sharing!

  20. I love eating fudge from little shops too!! This sounds absolutely fantastic!! I can’t wait to try it!! πŸ™‚ Oh, and I wish I had a food processor!!

  21. I’m all about key lime everything lately. Love this fudge. And I’d also love a new toaster oven!

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

    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 πŸ™

    Looking forward to the forthcoming blogs… πŸ˜€

  23. I love Key Lime anything so I can’t wait to try these!!!!

    Love hearing about getting your wish granted! I wish I could have one of those Keurig single cup coffee makers!!! (fingers crossed!!) LOL!!


  24. 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?

  25. 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?

  26. 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 πŸ˜€

  27. White chocolate and key lime? Yummy! Sounds delish!

  28. Key Lime Fudge – sounds delicious!!!

  29. This sounds wonderful!! I’ll be trying this soon.

  44. Jesness

    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?

    • Jesness

      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!!
