  • About This Recipe

    “Marbled orange and white fudge that tastes just like a creamsicle.I have revised this recipe over the years and this is my latest version — it’s less sweet than the original.When you dump it in the bowl, it might look as if you’ve failed, however, it smooth up as it sets.”
