Perfect for dessert lovers who crave a refreshing citrus twist, this fudge combines smooth white chocolate with a vibrant orange flavor, resulting in a treat that is as delightful to look at as it is to eat.



  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 7 oz marshmallow cream
  • 2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 3 teaspoons orange extract
  • Orange food coloring (up to 10 drops, adjust to preference)


  1. Prepare the Pan: Grease a 9×13 inch baking pan and line it with parchment paper, ensuring it covers all sides.
  2. Cook the Fudge Mixture: In a saucepan, combine butter, heavy cream, and sugar. Heat until the butter is melted and the mixture is well blended. Continue to cook until it reaches 235°F (soft ball stage), stirring constantly.
  3. Add Flavors and Colors: Remove from heat. Stir in marshmallow cream and white chocolate chips until smooth. Transfer 1 cup of the mixture to a bowl for later. To the remaining mixture, add orange extract and food coloring. Stir until color is uniform.
  4. Assemble: Pour the orange mixture into the prepared pan, spreading evenly. Drop dollops of the reserved white mixture over the orange layer. Swirl with a knife to create a marble effect.
  5. Chill: Refrigerate for 2 hours, or until the fudge sets completely.
  6. Serve: Cut into squares and enjoy.


  • For a vibrant orange color, adjust the amount of food coloring as you mix.
  • Use a hot knife (run under hot water and dried) to cut clean, smooth squares.
  • Store in an airtight container to keep the fudge fresh.


Q: How can I ensure my fudge sets properly?

Q: Can I substitute orange extract with real orange zest or juice?
A: Yes, for a natural flavor boost, you can add 2 tablespoons of fresh orange zest. However, the extract is needed for a stronger orange flavor.
