Orange Dream Fudge

by Laura

When I think of Christmas, one of the smells I always think of is the smell of oranges.  Santa always left an orange in the toe of our stocking!  Since oranges remind me so much of Christmas I had to do an orange fudge for fudge week.
This is a cooked version, but an easy version for the cooked variety.  No need for a candy thermometer on this one.  This fudge also has a fun look, you leave part of the mixture white and swirl it into the orange.

I made this fudge last year for Xmas and am ready to make it again. I made it a cple of times in the year. It is so good, I can’t get enough of it. Kids love it too.

This was my first attempt at making fudge of any kind. Although I made the mistake of rushing and not waiting for my sugar to completely dissolve, at least it’s an edible oops. I added 1/2tsp vanilla to the cup of vanilla fudge. Other than for being a little grainy, it’s still really flavorful and so much reminds me of the ice cream I had as a kid. Now that I’ve found the Peanut Butter Fudge recipe, I have a few ideas i want to try out. LOL
