CHOCOLATE ORANGE FUDGE
3 hours 45 minutes
A delicious pairing of savory chocolate and sweet orange, this simple fudge is sweetened with sugar and marshmallows and flavored with orange extract and zest.
‣ 1 cup salted butter ‣ 12 ounce evaporated milk, (1 can) NOT sweetened ‣ 4 cup granulated sugar ‣ 4 cup miniature marshmallows ‣ 3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips ‣ 1/2 teaspoon orange extract ‣ 2 tablespoon orange zest, plus more for decoration (optional)
Using a large, deep saucepan (I like to use a dutch oven), melt butter over medium heat. Once melted, add sugar and evaporated milk. Stirring constantly, bring mixture to a boil.
COOK BUTTER AND SUGAR
Add the marshmallows to the saucepan, then stir until they’re (mostly) dissolved, then add the chocolate chips. Mix until everything is melted and creamy.
ADD MARSHMALLOWS AND CHOCOLATE
Finally, add the orange extract and orange zest, then stir until incorporated into the chocolate.
ADD THE ORANGE FLAVOR
Pour the chocolate fudge mixture into a long, wide baking dish lined with aluminum foil. Use a spatula to smooth out the top of the chocolate.
