      Pin It In the last year or so I have developed an annoying tendency. I have become one of those people who is convinced they have a life-threatening illness. With every headache I convince myself that I have a brain tumor and wonder when my tumor  grows if I will become a major genius like John Travolta did in Phenomenon. With every ache in my knee I am doing research online on who is the best knee replacement surgeon in my area.  Or really the whole country because no expense can be spared when I am in need of a life changing surgery. My knuckles have been aching lately and I have convinced myself that I have Rheumatoid Arthritis.  My husband laughed at me and said yeah, you’re 36…sometimes things just start to ache a little. He doesn’t feed into my paranoia.  Instead of playing along and acting concerned he just tells me to go for a walk and drink a glass of water.  Like fresh air and H2O are gonna solve my problems.  Ridiculous. Watching Grey’s Anatomy also does not help, because there are some crazy medical situations that arise on that show only fueling my internal self diagnosis arsenal.   So the other day to get my mind off the cutting-edge eyeball transplant surgery that I will most certainly need, I decided to make fudge. Of the key lime variety. At least my brain is working. I will warn you, though.  This stuff is basically crack-fudge.  I’m not kidding.  The chance of you having high blood sugar after making and inevitable eating the entire pan is imminent.  Real talk. First make a yummy shortbread crust.  Kind of unconventional for fudge, but trust me on this. Then melt some white chocolate.  I always use a double boiler for white chocolate because I am not a good microwaver. While that’s melting, zest a few limes… Then mix your melted chips, sweetened condensed milk and Key Lime juice together. Stir in your zest… Now, if you are feeling fancy, reserve 1/4 cup of the white chocolate mix and tint it green to swirl in to the fudge. Spread the uncolored mixture evenly over the crust and then swirl in the tinted. Pop it in the fridge and let it set up for about 2-3 hours. Cut it up when you’re ready to serve… Out of control good.  I wouldn’t steer you wrong. Key Lime Fudge   Print Ingredients 20 shortbread cookies, crushed (about 1 cup) 5 Tbsp salted butter, melted ¼ cup granulated sugar 3 cups white chocolate chips 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk 3 Tbsp Key lime juice zest of 4 Key Limes. green food coloring (optional) Instructions Preheat oven to 350° Line an 8x8 pan with foil.

Stir in zest. *Optional, reserve ¼ cup fudge mixture and with a small amount of green food coloring, tint the reserved mixture and set aside. Spread the un-colored fudge mixture into prepared pan. Then drizzle reserved mixture on top and swirl in with a knife. Place in refrigerator to set, 2-3 hours. Cut into squares. Notes This is a soft fudge, and although you don't have to, I stored my in fridge.adapted from Sugar Cooking 3.2.2807   Related
