A delicious twist on an old favorite. Yes, our post about yesterday being Nutty Fudge Day triggered this great tasting treat.
3 cups sugar
3/4 cup butter or margarine
1 small can (5 oz.) evaporated milk (about 2/3 cup)
3 packages (4 oz. each) Semi-Sweet Chocolate, chopped
1 jar (7 oz.) Marshmallow Creme
1 teaspoon Orange Extract
Orange zest from 2 large Sunburst Navel Oranges
Line a nine inch square pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides.
Bring sugar, butter and evaporated milk to full rolling boil in 3 quart saucepan on medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook four minutes or until candy thermometer reaches 234° Fahrenheit, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.
Add chocolate and marshmallow creme to the saucepan; stir until melted and incorporated. Add the Orange Extract; mix well.
Pour into the prepared nine inch pan; spread to cover bottom of pan. Add the Orange Jest over the top to add a tasty decorative flair. Cool completely in the refrigerator. Use foil handles to lift fudge from pan before cutting into squares.
You can also cool and cut the fudge first and then sprinkle the orange zest so that it stays on the top of the pieces. This is what we did for this image.
For our nut lovers out there: Add 1 cup chopped Walnuts at the same time as you add the Orange Extract
