If I am being totally honest here, fudge is not my favorite thing. Fudgie brownies, bring it. Fudgie pie or cake, bring it on. But a bar or piece of fudge? I’ll usually pass. It’s just wayyyyy too sweet for me. That is unless it’s Remington’s key lime fudge. It’s so simple to make, not overly sweet and has a delicious combination of flavors. White chocolate, key lime and macadamia nuts.
This fudge is a big hit at the holidays. It’s about the only time we make it, but we like to make a batch and give it away as gifts. Remington’s mom might have even said it was the best fudge she’s ever had. It’s sweet, but balanced by the tang of the key lime juice and the rich, buttery flavor from the macadamias.
- 3 cups white chocolate chips
- 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
- 2 tsp (generous) lime zest
- 2 Tbsp key lime juice (Nellie & Joe's)
- 1/2 cup toasted, chopped macadamias
Line an 8 inch square baking pan with parchment or foil (if using foil, then butter or spray it) and set aside.
In large, heavy saucepan cook chips and condensed milk until smooth. Remove from heat.
Stir in lime zest, juice & nuts.
Spread into prepared pan. Cover & chill for 2 hours.
Cut into 1 inch pieces.
