Orange Creamsicle Fudge

by Katie on April 8, 2014

Do you love Orange Creamsicle flavor? I make a Creamsicle cake and there are people that go nuts over the idea, and then there are the Creamsicle haters that would never give it a thought. I think it’s just one of those things that people are on either side of the fence on.  Or at least that’s what I’ve found to be the case.

So which side are you on?

I would have to say that I’m not much for orange flavor in a lot of things, but I do LOVE this fudge. I got the recipe from my friend Tina back when she blogged and had to give it a try since it sounded so different. It’s been made each Christmas since and it’s a family favorite!

We love it so much and I got to thinking about why I only make it for Christmas?   After all, the orange flavor (and color) would be perfect for Easter, right? Why not enjoy Creamsicle Fudge a little more often?

So, here you have it – Delicious Creamsicle Fudge that is perfect for Easter! You can even make it ahead of time and have it out of the way!

I know fudge can be intimidating for some people, but trust me when I say that this is a super easy fudge recipe. I don’t think you could mess this up!
