Snowflake Fudge [Week 7 of 12 Weeks of Holiday Treats]

snowflake fudge recipeWeek 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.

    My, these look so pretty. I understand how they never made it out your door. I could finish a few of these myself, too.

    Hi
    Living in UK and havn’t heard of powdered sugar – would the powdered sugar be the same as icing sugar??
    Thanks

    I would say add orange extract. Candy recipes are very specific and I would be afraid that it wouldn’t hold. And that is a lot of white chocolate to throw away if it doesn’t

    These are really good but really rich. I think next time I will only make half a recipe as they go a long way. Thank you for the orange extract tip…I didn’t care for the orange zest but the extract would be perfect. The texture truly is amazing and perfect…delish!

    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.
