Pecan Coconut Orange Fudge

I was in an experimenting mood the other day, and I came up with a new fudge recipe!  Making Fudge is so fun to me, because as long as you have a good base, you can change it up in so many different ways.  I basically searched in my cupboards for stuff to add to this fudge, and it turned out really well!


Pecan Coconut Orange Fudge

2 1/2 c. sugar
2/3 c. milk
1/2 stick butter (1/4 c.)
1 1/2 c. white chocolate chips
1/4 c. pecans chopped
1/4 c. coconut
1 tsp. orange extract

1.  Prepare a pan by lining with tin foil and greasing foil.

2. Mix together sugar, milk, and butter in saucepan.  Heat over medium-high heat.

3.  Bring mixture to a boil, stirring frequently.  Once mixture is boiling, let it boil untouched for five minutes.

4.  Take mixture off stove and beat mixture.  Add in white chocolate chips, coconut, and pecans, and stir until chips melt and are well blended.

5.  Add orange extract last.  Extract may partially evaporate when it hits the hot fudge, just stir into mixture quickly.

6.  Spread fudge into prepared pan.  Fudge should set in about 10 minutes.


I made this fudge twice and we really liked it!  I think it is especially good with a cup of hot coffee (of course, I think anything is that much better with coffee).  Enjoy!

Did you also add orange zest? I see orange bits in the fudge, but none in the recipe.

Not in the fudge, I just added some orange zest on top for extra color in the picture! It probably would be good in the fudge too though.
