Marbled orange and white fudge that tastes just like a creamsicle. I have revised this recipe over the years and this is my latest version -- it's less sweet than the original. When you dump it in the bowl, it might look as if you've failed, however, it smooth up as it sets.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Line a 9 inch square pan with "Release" foil or line with regular foil and spray with cooking spray.
  2. Place marshmallow crème and white chips in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Combine sugar, cream and butter in saucepan.
  4. Turn heat to medium and cook, stirring once or twice, until mixture reaches 235°F
  5. Remove from heat immediately and pour hot cream mixture into mixing bowl with chips and marshmallow crème.
  6. Stir well with a wooden spoon -- mixture might look slightly stretchy and unappetizing, but don't worry, it will smooth out.
  7. Remove 1 cup of mixture and set aside.
  8. Stir orange extract and a few drops of each color food coloring into mixture which remains in bowl.
  9. Stir until it reaches a lovely orange hue.
  10. Adjust colors if needed.
  11. Pour orange mixture into prepared pan. Pour or spoon white mixture on top.
  12. Drag a knife through both to make swirls.
  13. Using a sheet of foil, press down slightly to smooth top.
  14. Let cool to room temperature (about 40 minutes) then chill for one hour or until set.
  15. Lift fudge from pan using foil handles and using a large knife, score into squares.

If I could give five stars just for appearance I would. This is lovely. It looks very appealing and professional.The only qualm I have would be that the white chocolate chips are a bit over powering. I added double the orange flavoring and a little clear vanilla and I was very glad I did. It is very good, very rich, cut your pieces small a little goes a long way!

Orange Dreamsicle Truffles??? I can't make fudge, never could but never give up trying. Posting for others who are fudge-challenged like me. Rather than admit defeat one more time I rolled these into balls, dropped them into powdered sugar and turned them into truffles. The recipe is just delicious and I did use the chocolate chips.
