Key Lime Fudge...Only Two Ingredients!


 
This key lime fudge is perfect for St. Patrick's Day or the Easter holiday and it only has two ingredients and takes just minutes to make! 
 
 
They have Key Lime frosting out for the spring season and you need white baking chips. You only need a 12 oz. bag of chips and not this big huge bag.  I buy in bulk!  You will also need some Spring sprinkles.
 
 
1  16 oz. can of Key Lime frosting
1  12 oz. bag of white chocolate chips
Spring, St. Patrick's Day or Easter Sprinkles

Place the chips in a glass bowl and microwave on high for 1 minute and 30 seconds, stir.  Microwave for about 1 more minute and stir again.  Do this until the white chips are completely melted.  This depends on your microwave.  Mine took about 2 minutes.  

Remove the top and the aluminum from the top of the frosting.  Microwave it for about 20-30 seconds.  Be sure to remove all of that foil or you will have fireworks in the microwave.  There is a reason I know this!  Stir the frosting into the melted chips and blend really well. 

Pour this into a 8"x8" or a 9"x9" pan that you have lined with wax paper.  You can spray the dish with nonstick spray if you don't have wax paper, but I think the paper works better.
 
Sprinkle with whatever sprinkles you want to use as soon as you pour it in the pan and it has not set yet.  If you wait until it has set, they will not adhere and will all fall off.  
 
Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, overnight is best.   Turn it out and peel the paper off.  Cut in 1 inch squares.
 
This Key Lime flavor will be great for St. Patrick's Day or Easter, but you can make virtually any combination with this you like, just by changing the frosting and the chips.   I think lemon would great for Easter also!  Do this with the kids, they will love experimenting with the flavors and putting the sprinkles on.

  1. Oh my goodness.. that sounds delightful! You can also use aluminum foil.. thats what I line my pans with when I make fudge like that.. Then once they're chilled, you just wrap the foil around it to keep it fresh.. :) Its a win win!

  2. Wonder if lime juice would work in vanilla frosting

    1. I don't know about the lime juice, it might make it to thin to set properly but I bet you could use a lime extract or flavoring oil. I love those little bottles of LorAnn Gourmet extracts - if you use the oils remember that most brands are 3 to 4 times stronger than regular extracts.
