This was made for ‘Santa’. Of course, the kids had to taste to make sure it was up to the quality needed. And we always looked forward to the leftovers from the fudge plate on Christmas morning.
The sights and smells of home are what dreams, memories and traditions are made of. These traditions are very important to family and we, at our house, continue to create these memories and traditions for all we can.
We have added a new flavor to the fudge memories. Christmas Orange Creamcicle Fudge is one of the favorites among our children and grand-children.
Christmas Orange Creamcicle Fudge
3 cups Sugar
3/4 cup (1 1/2 stick) Butter or Margarine
1 can (5 oz.) Evaporated Milk
1 package (12 oz.) White Chocolate Chips
1 jar (7 oz.) Marshmallow Crème
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
2 tsp. Orange Extract
Orange Food Coloring
(made from combination of Red and Yellow Food Coloring)
Grease 9 inch glass or metal square pan (2 inch deep casserole dish works well)
Place Sugar, Butter and Milk in large saucepan on medium heat and bring to rolling boil, stirring constantly. Boil 4 to 5 minutes until it shows 234 degrees F. on candy thermometer, stirring constantly.
Remove from heat.
Add White Chocolate Chips, Marshmallow Crème, Vanilla and Orange Extracts and stir until all is melted. Pour into pan or dish after removing 1 cup of mixture.
Add color to the cup of mixture. (Do this quickly due to the fudge continuing to set up.)
Put orange fudge in stripes across the white fudge in the pan or dish. Use knife or any slightly pointed object to drag orange through the mixture until swirls and eddies are created. Allow to cool.
Make sure that you save some for Santa!
