YIELD: 48 servings/2.5 pounds
- 3/4 cup butter
- 3 cups sugar
- 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1 package (12 ounces) white baking chips
- 1 jar (7 ounces) marshmallow creme
- 4 teaspoons orange extract
- 4 tablespoons Champagne
- 12 drops yellow food coloring
- 5 drops red food coloring
Line a 13-in. x 9-in. pan with parchment paper; set aside.
In a large heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, cream and remaining butter. Cook and stir over low heat until sugar is dissolved. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 4 minutes. Place the baking chips & marshmallow creme into a large bowl. Remove the sugar mixture from the heat; stir in to the chips and marshmallow creme until smooth.
Remove 1 cup of the mixture and set aside. Add orange extract and Champagne to the remaining mixture; stir until blended. Add in the food colorings & stir until desired orange color is reached.

I am not a fudge fan (but these look amazing) and I have a few family members who would LOVE this.
This sounds amazing!!
Do these have to stay in the fridge, or do they just need to be in there long enough to set?
I would leave them in the fridge as much as possible just because the longer you have them out the warmer they will get & they will start to lose the firmness. They will be fine to have out if you’re serving them at a party or something, but then I would store any leftovers back in the fridge.
