Orange Creamsicle Fudge Recipe


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 (more if you want it a darker shade)


Grease a 9 x 13 inch glass pan.

In a saucepan over medium heat combine the sugar, butter, and heavy cream. Heat to the softball stage which is about 235 degrees F, stirring constantly.

Remove from heat and stir in the marshmallow cream and white chips. Stir until the white chips are well blended and melted.

Reserve 1 cup of the mixture and set aside in another bowl.

Add orange extract and food coloring to the remaining mixture left in the saucepan. Stir well and pour into the greased 9 x 13 inch pan.

Then pour or drizzle the reserved white mixture that you set aside over the orange fudge. With a knife swirl it into the fudge back and forth.

Refrigerate until set, about 2 hours. Then cut into squares and serve.

This can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container for a few weeks.
