A great summer treat with tropical flavors. But I prefer mine with vegetable oil instead of shortening. It serves the same purpose and it doesn't impart an odd flavor.
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.
