Key Lime Pie Fudge

I needed something quick to take to a friends’ dinner party, but couldn’t decide between my usual list of go-to favorites.

Everything just seemed boring, or over-used.

Imagine you’re trying to get ready for a night out and staring down the gauntlet that is your own closet. Nothing grabs you, nothing fits the venue just right, etc.

Giving up on finding inspiration within my own pantry, I decided to troll through my browsers bookmarks, and settled on tweaking some Key Lime Pie Fudge bites that I had found on About.com.  

The prep was simple, the amount of effort involved was minimal, yet when finished I was left with creamy little bites of heaven.

These are THAT good! This is key lime pie fudge is not your Grandma’s fudge recipe.

Give them a try. You will never think of fudge the same way again.graham cracker crusted key lime pie fudge is shown in a glass bowl
