Orange Sherbet Fudge

If you like orange sherbet you will like this fudge.  The first time I tried it I fell for it.  A co-worker brought it to a potluck and I just had to get their recipe.  You can use another flavor instead of orange if you like another better.

Orange Sherbet Fudge

1/2 stick margarine

3 cups sugar

3/4 cups heavy whipped cream

1 (10-12 oz.) white chocolate chips

3 teaspoons orange extract

1 small jar marshmallow creme

10 drops red food coloring

5 drops yellow food coloring

Grease a 9″ x 13″ pan with margarine.  Mix margarine, sugar, and whipped cream and boil for 4 minutes.  Next, add the marshmallow creme, orange extract, and white chocolate chips tot he mixture.  Mix well until the mixture is a smooth consistency. (The mixture will become thick and hard to stir.)

If you want a marbled looking fudge, take out one cup of the mixture and set aside.  Add the food coloring to the remaining mixture and pour it into the 9″ x 13″ pan.  Drop spoonfuls of the mixture you set aside into the pan and streak it through the orange mixture with a knife to create a marbled look.

Refrigerate until set and cut into squares.

Suggested variations

3 teaspoons mint favoring and 12 drops green food coloring

3 teaspoons peppermint flavoring and 12 drops red food coloring


Orange Marmalade Ham Glaze

I found this recipe several years ago in a magazine.  I don’t remember what magazine, but it was probably lying around in a doctor’s waiting room somewhere.   Since it is approaching the Christmas holiday, I thought it might be useful to share it with my readers.

It has been a while since I have used the glaze, but it is very tasty and I believe everyone will like it.

Orange Marmalade Ham Glaze

3/4 cup orange marmalade

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon dry mustard

Combine all the ingredients and blend them well.  Spread the glaze over the top and sides of the ham before baking.  Bake the ham per the instructions.

I Love This Punch

My niece Lori makes this punch for special occasions such as her children’s birthday parties and holidays.  Everyone seems to love it, especially my brother and I.  I asked her if I could share her recipe with my blog readers, she said yes and here it is.  Enjoy!
