Chocolate Orange Fudge
Orange-scented chocolate marshmallow fudge with toasted walnuts.
2 cups granulated sugar
1 (5-ounce) can evaporated milk
10 large marshmallows (or 100 miniature)
1 (6-ounce) package semisweet chocolate pieces
1 cup chopped toasted walnuts
1/2 cup butter or margarine, cut into small pieces
Grated peel from 2 well-washed oranges
- Line a 8x8x2-inch baking pan with lightly buttered waxed paper or aluminum foil. Set aside.
- In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, evaporated milk, and marshmallows. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Boil for 6 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add remaining ingredients. Beat well until fudge thickens, about 5 minutes.
- Spread in prepared dish and chill until firm. Carefully remove fudge from pan using the edges of the foil. Cut into squares.
Makes about 2 pounds fudge.
