Orange Creamsicle Fudge

I made this fudge for the first time to take up to a family vacation in Yellowstone. They turned out delicious and I couldn't wait to take the bag up to my husband's family so we could all enjoy them throughout the weekend.  

We had to leave really early in the morning to get up there and so we packed up all our stuff the night before. The fudge had to stay in the refrigerator and so I planned on grabbing it in the morning right before we left. After we had been driving for about 30 minutes I realized I had left the fudge in the refrigerator! I was so bummed....  

This last weekend, Brandon's family came down to Salt Lake to visit us and go to a play and so I decided I was going to make Orange Creamsicle Fudge again so they could finally try it. I told them all the first time that I had made fudge and left it as home so I felt like it was only right to make it for them when they could actually enjoy it! 

If you want to make this fudge yourself, here is the recipe! 

ORANGE CREAMSICLE FUDGE

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 ½ sticks butter
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 package (12 oz) white chocolate chips
  • 1 container (7 oz) marshmallow cream
  • 1 tbsp orange extract
  • Orange food coloring (or a yellow / red mix)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Line a 9x13 pan with aluminum foil and spray with baking spray.
  2. Over medium heat, combine the sugar, cream, and butter in a large saucepan.
  3. Continually stir the mixture until the butter melts and the sugar dissolves.
  4. Turn the heat up to high and bring the mixture to a boil. Once it starts boiling, stir continuously for four minutes.
  5. After four minutes of boiling, remove the pan from the heat and immediately stir in the marshmallow cream and white chocolate chips.
  6. Stir until the white chocolate chips are melted and the fudge is completely smooth.
  7. Working quickly, pour about a third of the white fudge into a bowl and set aside.
  8. To the remaining fudge, add the orange extract and orange food coloring, stirring until it is smooth. It is important to perform these steps quickly, because the fudge will start to set if you take too long, and the end result will not be smooth.
  9. Pour the orange fudge into the prepared 9x13 pan and spread it into an even layer.
  10. Drop the white fudge on the top of the orange fudge in spoonfuls. Mix together the orange and white fudge by using a table knife or toothpick and dragging it through the fudge to create orange-white swirls.
  11. Place the fudge in the refrigerator for 1 hour to let it set.
  12. Cut and enjoy!
