Easy Orange Creamsicle Fudge ~ This Fool Proof Fudge will have everyone thinking you slaved over it! Super Simple, Smooth, Creamy Fudge!
Hi Friends! I’m Julie from Julie’s Eats & Treats. I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and are welcoming 2016 with big hopes and dreams! Today I’m swinging by Joan’s blog to bring you this super easy fudge recipe. Joan was a lot like me, all about the easy treats!
If you are anything like me and you hear the word fudge you might be a little apprehensive. I always envisioned candy thermometers, certain temperatures required, seizing of chocolate and everything else under the sun. Apparently I was wrong. Fudge can be super easy like this!
All you need is some frosting, white baking chips melted together then and add your orange extract and food coloring to get this pretty Easy Orange Creamsicle Fudge!
Like I said super easy!
I made this for Christmas and people were raving about it every time they took a bite. That good people.
That good. It’s like an orange bursting in your mouth, but obviously sweeter.
These pieces of fudge are rich so cut them into bite size pieces. Plus, then you can have more right because they are little! At least that’s how I justify it in my life.
Who’s with me on that one?
If you love this fudge recipe you can adapt it in so many ways! For example, you can do Vanilla Frosting + Peanut Butter Chips for a delicious Peanut Butter Fudge.
