Lime Fudge




Lime Fudge

1 small box lime gelatin


3 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups milk
1/4 cup butter
Green food color paste, as desired
1/2 cup green maraschino cherries, chopped
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
4 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted
Combine gelatin, sugar, baking soda and milk in a heavy 3−quart saucepan. Cook and stir over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Continue cooking over medium heat, without stirring, to a soft
ball stage. Remove from heat. Add butter and food color paste, if desired. Cool until mixture is lukewarm.
Beat until mixture loses its gloss. Quickly stir in cherries and walnuts. Pour into 8−inch square pan.
When firm, spread or drizzle melted chocolate over the top. Cut into squares.

I have done the same with white chocolate, to mixed reviews. A little coconut is a good addition.

It might have been better (for me) without the maraschino's.
