3 cups white chocolate chips (one and a half 12 oz. bag of chips)
2 tsp. lime zest
3 Tbsp. fresh or bottled lime juice
Green food coloring
12 ready made graham cracker tart crusts
Candy jellied lime slices
Cake and cookie snowflake decorating sprinkles
In a heavy sauce pot, heat the milk and chips until the chips are almost melted. Remove from heat and stir until the chips are completely melted and the mixture is smooth. Stir in the lime zest and lime juice. If you want some extra color, add a few drops of green food coloring. Take it easy with the amount of food coloring if you want a softer green color. Pour fudge into graham cracker tart shells. Allow to set up about 15 minutes. Cut the candy lime slices into four triangular wedges. Place one wedge of candy on top of each fudge tart. Press slightly into the fudge. Top the “Christmas tree” with a yellow (or any color you want) candy star or snowflake from a bottle of snowflake cookie and cake decorating sprinkles.
This recipe makes 2 ½ pounds of candy, which will fill 12 tarts. The candy will keep at room temperature for a week or in the freezer for 2 months.
