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!
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
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...
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!
