Creamsicle Fudge

In honor of National Creamsicle Day, I am posting one of my favorite recipes.  I make this fudge every year for Christmas, but its so delicious that I make it often throughout the year as well.  Many may have their own recipes, but this is mine.

Ingredients:

3/4 C butter

2 C Sugar

3/4C Heavy Cream (don’t substitute)

12 oz.  White Chocolate Chips

7 0z. Marshmallow Cream

1 T Orange Extract

Orange Food Coloring (amount depends on color you wish to achieve)

Directions:

-Place parchment paper in 13X9 pan.  I suggest spraying paper with cooking spray. Set aside.

-In large saucepan, over medium heat, combine sugar, cream butter.  Stir constantly until sugar dissolves and butter melts.

-Bring mixture to boil, boil for about 4 minutes.

-Remove pan from heat, stir in marshmallow cream and chocolate chips.  Once everything is mixed, remove about 1/3 of total mixture and set aside.

-Add orange extract and food coloring, mix well.  Be speedy or fudge may start to set and will not provide the best end result.

-Pour orange fudge into pan and spread out.  Spoon reserved white fudge and drop sporadically onto orange.  Using a butter knife, pull the white fudge through orange into swirls.  This makes for the pretty version we all know.

-Refrigerate fudge for 1 hour.  Remove paper and fudge from pan, I usually flip it upside down onto a cutting board.  Using a sharp knife, cut fudge into pieces.

-Good about 1 week in airtight container.  I recommend refrigerating it, or it may become soft.
