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.
