If you are looking for a different twist on the traditional chocolate or peanut butter fudge then this Orange Fudge Recipe is for you! My friend Judy brought this to our GFWC Berea Woman’s Club open house and I honestly flipped over the taste. First of all, I have never heard of orange fudge! When she told me she was bringing it I thought how unusual and I don’t think I am going to like this. However, once she placed it on the table and people started raving about it I had to give this unique fudge a try.
It is so light and creamy and the flavor is perfection. This recipe doesn’t have an overpowering orange flavor but it is light and refreshing. It is hands down one of the best pieces of fudge I have ever eaten. I think it is the perfect bite size dessert to take to a party because it is light and refreshing. I promise you won’t regret making this recipe for your next party or family event. Every person gobbled up a piece (or two) and raved about how delicious it was.
I asked Judy to share the recipe with me so I could share it with you. It is a family original created by her niece Stevie and it is out of this world delicious! Be sure to give this orange fudge a try. This recipe is perfect for a fall party if you are going for orange themed foods but refreshing and summer feeling with the flavor profile. Trust me make a large batch because it will be eaten before you know it! However, you can also easily half this recipe too 🙂 Best of all there is no need for a candy thermometer to make this recipe. I call that a huge win in the candy making department! Enjoy this Orange Fudge Recipe.
