Snowflake Fudge

Snowflake Fudge – white chocolate and orange fudge that doesn’t need a therometer and gets some help from marshmallows. Package and give as gifts.

Week 7! I was working on a photography project for a client and made a version of this fudge for them. When I am doing photography work for clients, a lot of time, I don’t want to eat what I am shooting. By the time I have made it, shot it, and then cleaned it up, I am usually over it. I give away what is left and my husband’s office is usually eager to eat the remnants.

This white chocolate orange fudge was so good, it never made it out the door. The kids loved it, Wes loved it (and that is saying something, he does not have a sweet tooth), and I loved it. Before I knew it, the 9×13 pan of fudge was history.

After I made it for my client, I kept thinking about it and knew that it needed to be included this year on the holiday treat list. The texture is perfect, I love the flavors, and it makes a lot.

This is a perfect food gift. You can wrap it up in a pretty box with some ribbon and a label and have a beautiful gift from your kitchen. You could color this fudge if you wanted to also.

I wanted to keep it the natural color and dress it up with some sparkling sugar and pretty baby blue sugar pearls. It reminded me of winter, so I have named this Snowflake Fudge.

    I made these two years ago as a part of a cookie exchange but found that they didn’t hold very well- were super soft…I’d like to give it another go. Do you think that perhaps I just didn’t boil it long enough? Or are these meant to stay refrigerated? Thanks

      I think so, mine came out as they did in the picture. I don’t remember if I kept them cold.

    King Arthur Flour has an extract called Fiori di Sicilia that is orange and vanilla and would be perfect for this recipe. So good! 😀

      Yes it would! That is a really delicious extract. I’m going there next week, I need to grab another bottle while I am there.
