    I followed the instructions just as written and the fudge turned out perfect. My brother-in-law said it was one of the best fudge recipes that I've ever used. I'm still having to wait for the rest of the family to get to taste it because of coronavirus. But thanks so much for the recipe!

    My husband and daughter adored this, though I think I would add another tsp or even two of orange extract, or perhaps some orange zest? next time. For me personally they are just terribly sweet, basically orange flavored creamy sugar, but they certainly do taste like one of those orange creamsicle ice creams from my youth! Also, I used cheap white choc chips, and I do not recommend that, go ahead and pay the little extra for real cocoa butter white chocolate. Otherwise the cheap vanilla flavor of the cheap chips is pretty strong. Next time I'll use better ingredients, it makes a difference!

    I love this fudge recipe. I didn't use the food coloring, but that's a personal preference....of course, it didn't change the taste, just the appearance. So good if you love that creamsicle flavor combo!

    I had this recipe crystallize on me once (had success before) then I fallowed nutfudge's advice in previous comments. Cutting down sugar to 2 cups and washing down sides during cooking. It has turned out each time. Everyone really likes this fudge.

    Loved this. I did add a bit of vanilla to the white mixture to offset the orange part. This will definitely be going in the holiday rotation. I'm thinking of adding some orange zest next time, too.
