We love the classic holiday flavor of chocolate and orange together. So I decided to transform my favorite fudge recipe into chocolate orange fudge.

Oh you guys, this stuff is to-die-for! It just melts in your mouth. Thick, creamy, dark chocolate kissed with the zest of an orange and voila! You have the best Christmas fudge you’ve ever eaten.

Line an 8″ or 9″ square pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil, butter the foil and set aside.

Place marshmallow creme, sugar, evaporated milk, and butter in a heavy-bottom saucepan, bring to boil and cook for 5 minutes stirring constantly.

Remove from the heat, stir in chocolate chips, orange zest, and vanilla. Stir to melt the chocolate chips thoroughly and the mixture is smooth.

Pour into the prepared pan and let set until firm before cutting into desired pieces.

    This turned out so well. I didn’t have orange zest so I used 1/4 tsp orange extract and it was such a hit at work.
