Orange Creamsicle Fudge Recipe

3 weeks ago 1.1 K
One of my absolute favorite foods from childhood was a cold Creamsicle on a hot summer day. There’s just something so amazing about the combination of tangy-sweet citrus and the creamy vanilla core in that popsicle. Good news – we’re bringing you that same delicious combination but in the form of fudge! It’s not quite as cool, but it’s still incredibly creamy, and now it’s sliceable. (And you only need four ingredients and a microwave to make it.)
Those four ingredients are a can of vanilla frosting, some white chocolate chips, some orange food coloring, and some orange extract. See, you’re really just making one batch of fudge, and then changing the flavor and color of portions of it before swirling it all back together.


3 cups sugar

3/4 cup butter

2/3 cup heavy cream

7 ounces marshmallow cream

11 ounces white chocolate chips

3 teaspoons orange extract

10 drops orange food coloring (adjust for desired shade)


Preparation: Begin by lightly greasing a 9 x 13-inch glass dish.

Combine and Heat: In a medium-sized saucepan, melt together sugar, butter, and heavy cream over medium heat. Continue to heat until the mixture reaches the softball stage, approximately 235°F, ensuring you’re stirring continuously to prevent scorching.

Incorporate Cream & Chocolate: Once you’ve reached the desired temperature, remove the saucepan from heat. Stir in the marshmallow cream and white chocolate chips until they melt seamlessly into the mixture.

Prepare for Swirling: Set aside 1 cup of this smooth mixture. This will later form the white swirls.

Add the Orange Flair: To the saucepan, introduce the orange extract and food coloring. Mix until the color and flavor are consistently spread.

Layer and Swirl: Pour the orange mixture into your greased dish. Over this, drizzle the cup of reserved white mixture. Using a knife or skewer, create swirls to give that marbled effect.

Set and Serve: Transfer the dish to the refrigerator and allow the fudge to set firmly, which should take about 2 hours. Once set, cut the fudge into squares.

Storage: This fudge can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator and will remain fresh for several weeks.

Enjoy the creamy, citrusy goodness of this unique fudge – a treat that will surely delight your taste buds!
