Key Lime Fudge

For years my sisters have been telling me that I needed to try lime fudge. They both make it and love it. I love chocolate and chocolate fudge is a favorite of mine, so to be honest lime fudge has not been high on my list of things to try.

However this year, I was looking for a few new recipes to try for our office party, so when I saw an old Southern Living recipe for Key Lime Fudge, I knew it was time to try it.

And the results were delicious and everyone loved it.  I wish I would have tried this a long time ago.

The recipe calls for key lime juice and that is what I used, but I really think any lime juice would do here, it would just give you a little different flavor.

I also added green food coloring to this so that it was green and looked more festive, but you can leave that out if you prefer not to use food coloring.

I think this would be fun to give as a gift with coffee fudge and maybe a few other kinds of candy. Place them on a nice holiday plate or platter and it is a gift everyone will love.

Do you have a favorite kind of fudge to make this time of year?

  1. Your Key Lime Fudge looks so pretty. I’ll have to give your version a try.

  2. I make the same recipe but add the zest of 4 limes. It is delicious!

    I want to make your fudge, but I am having trouble with the ingredients. How much is 5 oz of evaporated milk, does it come in a 5 oz can? I thought it only came in the 12 oz can. Please advise. Thanks for all the great recipes, I subscribed to you a while back and this recipe really caught my eye, I am hoping to make it as gifts for my family this Christmas.

    • The 5 ounce can is a small can. It usually comes in two sizes, the 12 ounces and the 5 ounces. If you can’t find the 5 ounce you could just buy the 12 ounce and measure out 5 ounces. I hope that helps.

  4. Any thoughts on using almond bark instead of white chocolate chips? I think I will just try it.
    Jennifer D: The 5 oz translates to 1/2 cup + 1/8 cup if you do not have something that will measure ounces.
