I was inspired to make this fudge by a candy shop in Portsmouth, NH, called Mainely Gourmet. They sell the most decadent and unusual chocolates there. They have a cran orange white chocolate bark that is amazing. I experimented and came up with this. It's delicious, velvety and smooth. A great addition to holiday baking, I think.

First of all, I had this flavor of fudge at a gourmet chocolates shop and was dying t o copy it at home! So happy to find this recipe. And it tasted wonderful. The only problem was that it stayed sort of mushy and never really set. It really did taste good, but I'm not sure what I could do to make it a little more firm and therefore presentable as a gift.
Great Valentine's Day treat! The only thing I did differently was to double the recipe. Followed the recipe to the tee and it came out great. Everyone loved it!
