Ingredients

  • 1 1/2  Cup  white chocolate chips
  • 1  Cup  marshmallow crème
  • 1 1/2  Cup  sugar
  • 1/2  Cup  evaporated milk
  • 6  Tablespoons  butter
  • 1  Tablespoon  vanilla extract
  • 4  Teaspoons  orange zest
  • Orange food coloring, to desired color

Directions

Line a 5- by 9-inch loaf pan with foil, and then coat it with cooking spray. Place the chocolate chips and marshmallow crème in a large bowl.

In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, combine the sugar, evaporated milk, and butter. Bring to a boil and continue boiling for 4 minutes, stirring constantly.

Add the mixture to the chocolate chips and marshmallow crème and stir until smooth. Add the vanilla. Reserve 1 cup, then stir the zest and a few drops of food coloring into the rest of the fudge.

Pour half the orange fudge into the prepared pan, smoothing it evenly. Freeze it for 5 minutes. Evenly layer on the reserved white fudge and return the pan to the freezer for 5 minutes. Add the remaining fudge and refrigerate until firm, at least 2 hours.

Use the foil to lift the fudge from the pan and onto a cutting surface. With a sharp knife, cut it into 1-inch squares. Keep it refrigerated until ready to serve.

Creamsicle Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Creamsicle Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
