Dreamsicle Fudge



I had this amazing fudge last Christmas at a get-together. It was so good I came home and Googled the recipe and went right out and bought the ingredients. I gave a little of it away before it was devoured by my family.

Taste of Home "made over" this recipe that tastes like an orange Creamsicle ice cream bar.

DREAMSICLE FUDGE
Prep: 30 min. + chilling

2 1/2 cups granulated sugar 
2/3 cup evaporated milk 
1/2 cup butter, cubed 
1 package (10 to 12 ounces) white baking chips 
1 jar (7 ounces) marshmallow creme 
3 teaspoons orange extract 
12 drops yellow food coloring 
9 drops red food coloring
 
Line a 13-in. x 9-in. pan with foil and coat with cooking spray; set aside. In a small heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, evaporated milk and butter. Cook and stir over low heat until sugar is dissolved. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 4 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in chips and marshmallow creme until smooth. 

Remove 1 cup and set aside. Add extract and food coloring to the remaining mixture; stir until blended. Pour into prepared pan. Pour reserved marshmallow mixture over the top; cut through mixture with a knife to swirl. Cover and refrigerate until set. 

Using foil, lift fudge out of pan. Discard foil; cut fudge into 1-inch squares. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Yield: about 2 1/2 pounds.
