I’ve been on quite a fudge kick this holiday season getting ready to make candy baskets for our family and neighbors. I think the Cashew Fudge is going to be a new favorite this year along with a this Creamsicle Fudge. If you are a fan of the orange cream sodas or creamsicle ice cream bars, this fudge will be your new favorite too.

Easy Fudge Recipes

Fudge doesn’t have to be complicated or intimidating. This easy recipe doesn’t require a candy thermometer or difficult ingredients. It turns out creamy and delicious every single time. My mother in law made this many years ago after finding it in a Taste of Home book or magazine and I’ve been making it ever since. It’s basically a no-fail recipe. 

I also love that fudge can be made well in advance and keeps well in the refrigerator. I make goodie baskets for family and friends for the holidays and this orange cream fudge is always a favorite.

  1. About the creamsicle fudge, I have never had this but I find it intrigueing. I have a coupke questions: Can you use orange juice instead of the orange extract? And can you omit the food coloring?

      1. I made this and let it sat over night in the fridge, when I went to cut it, it was sticky and not hard like it should be.

        1. Hi Tammy,
          I would guess it didn’t cook quite long enough. If you try it again, I would bring it to a full rolling boil and boil for 4 minutes. I hope that helps.

  2. You don’t say what size pan; it looks like 8×8. Also, how exactly to prepare pan? Is it just parchment paper, or do you butter it as well? Thanks

    1. Hi Jeanne,
      I didn’t butter the parchment paper and I have used both 8 x 8 and 9 x 9 pans to make this, it’s just slightly thinner with the 9 x 9. I hope that helps.

      Thanks,
      Milisa
