Cinnamon Orange Fudge

Cinnamon Orange Fudge Recipe | Through Clouded Glass

In my family we have a classic chocolate fudge recipe.  I have no idea where it came from (if I did, I would credit the original recipe here), but it is good stuff!  Even though we traditionally have it at Christmas-time, I sometimes cheat and make it in other seasons as well.

A couple months ago I decided to mix it up a bit, and I came up with this new cinnamon orange fudge recipe - it turned out pretty well!  It has just the right amount of spice to it - I think it would be especially appropriate for the fall or Christmas season.  Even though I'm posting it in January.  Just pretend this is a few months ago.

Cinnamon Orange Fudge

3 cups sugar

1 1/2 sticks margarine

2/3 cup evaporated milk

10 oz. bag cinnamon flavored chips

1/2 bag mini marshmallows

1 tsp orange extract

2/3 cups walnuts (optional)

1. Grease a 8x8 baking dish and set aside.

2.  Mix together sugar, margarine, and evaporated milk in a saucepan and place over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally.

3. Bring to a boil - once mixture is boiling, let it boil untouched for 5 minutes.

4. After five minutes, remove from heat and stir.  Add cinnamon chips and stir until melted (don't freak out of they don't seem to be mixing in well at first, just keep beating mixture until smooth).

5. Quickly stir in 1/2 bag of mini marshmallows until they are melted and mixture is smooth (this takes some elbow grease - your arm will probably get tired).

6. Add in orange extract and walnuts (if desired).

7. Spread in prepared pan.  Mixture should set within 20 minutes.  Cut into squares and enjoy!
