WKimball, the recipe calls for shortening, not margarine. Thats probably the problem.

What the heck!!! I followed the recipe exactly and I bombed and the mess went in the garbage. The white chocolate and shortening would not combine no matter how hard I tried. I used white chocolate chips and Blue Bonnet margarine. What did I do wrong?

I made this recipe two more times and the third time around, I used 4 tsp. grated lime zest, 1/2 cup toasted coconut and instead of the almonds, I'd used 1/2 cup dried cranberries. I'd used 8 tsp. of vegetable shortening and that helped to make the candy mixture smoother and easier for me to spread. So the 3rd time around I made LESS changes! I'd say that the 3rd time worked best!

Wow! This is the easiest recipe to make and it is delicious… I substituted coconut oil for the shortening and it was fabulous… Thank you for the recipe… Wonderful

I made this for another treat to add to the holiday plates I give to my neighbors. It was a big hit with everyone. The lime was different for a bark candy.
