Toasted Coconut Lime Fudge/Nougat

Updated: Mar 22

So I was playing and this deliciousness was the result. It's a cross between Fudge and Nougat for texture. Store it in the fridge or freezer for a firm bite or on the counter for a softer gooey one. Both versions are a hit here!

Toasted Coconut Lime Fudge/Nougat

I love Coconut and Lime and wanted fudge without the 'so damn sweet' component. This was the result, complete in ~ 10mins in my steamer. This could easily be doubled and still cooked in your Epicure steamer and poured out onto a 1/4 sheet pan to cool! Mine was made in the Round Steamer (fingers crossed it shows up in the Jan Catalog) but you can use the MultiPurpose easily!

1 cup packed Brown Sugar

1/2 can Sweetened Condensed Milk

1/2 cup Salted Butter

2 lg Limes

1 cup Marshmallow Fluff

1 1/2cup Angel Flake Coconut

Salt for sprinkling

Coconut and Lime Fudge and Nougat in Progress

Melting:

  • Combine your sugar, condensed milk, and butter in your steamer.

  • Cook 1 min, lid on. Stir. Cook 1 more, stir well. By this time your sugar is likely dissolved. If not, cook 1 more minute and give it a good stir. You don't want to feel any sugar crystals.

  • Add in the juice of your limes, stir well. Your Epicure Citrus Press will ensure you get the most juice possible

Cooking: Cook 2 mins at a time, stirring in-between, until you hit 240 (or more for chewier). I think it took 6 mins for me...


Meanwhile:

  • Toast 1/2 your coconut to a lovely golden brown - I did mine in a fry pan on med heat stirring every min or so.

  • Zest your lime skin - I used approx 1/2-1 tsp of Zest

Finish - Once your caramel mix hits 240 (or whatever temp you want) Stir in & combine well:

  • 1/2 of your zest

  • your Marshmallow fluff

  • your plain and toasted coconut - reserving a big pinch of each to sprinkle on top.


I left mine right in the steamer to firm up - NOTE - DO NOT pour this into a regular pan without greasing it - it's a candy - it will firmly adhere! Store in/on parchment or in/on silicone or you'll have it stuck to your vessel. Silicone is freaking magic!

  • Sprinkle salt, remaining coconut and lime zest on the top - press in if it's started to firm up. Let it cool (I put mine in the fridge) and then devour!

NOTE - I've made this once and kept track of what I did. Since it has not been tested multiple times I can't guarantee the results, but whatever you get will be some version of silky chewy coconut lime goodness!
