It’s October! Which means spooky foods! ..Or at least orange foods or pumpkin foods. So here’s an orange fudge! It’s orange flavoured but I bet you can switch the orange extract for pumpkin and there you go! Maybe switch half of the vanilla chips for Chocolate and cook them seperate. Orange and black! Well, brown..
You will need!
- 3/4 cup 1 1/2 sticks/170g unsalted butter,
- 3 cups 600g granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup 180ml heavy cream
- 1 10- ounce package vanilla baking chips
- 1 7- ounce jar marshmallow crème
- 1 tablespoon pure orange extract
- 1/4 teaspoon orange gel food color
- Measuring cups
- Measuring spoons
- 8×8-inch pan
- Parchment paper
- Grease an 8×8-inch pan and line it with parchment paper that overhangs all four sides of the pan.
- Combine sugar, cream and butter in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Increase heat to medium-high and bring to a boil. Once the mixture boils, set a timer for 4 minutes. Cook without stirring. When the timer sounds, remove the pan from heat. Quickly add in baking chips and marshmallow cream. Stir until smooth.
- Remove 1 cup of the mixture to a small bowl. Add orange extract and food color to the candy remaining in the saucepan. Pour the orange candy into the prepared pan. Pour the reserved white candy on top of the orange candy. Swirl the two together using a butter knife or skewer.
- Let the candy stand until firm, about 2 hours. You may refrigerate the pan to speed setting. When the candy is firm, pull the block of fudge from the pan using the four overhanging sides of parchment. Cut the candy into 1-inch pieces.
