3 teaspoons orange extract (more or less to your taste)
10 drops yellow food coloring
4 drops red food coloring

*Option for Minty Creme Fudge
(Same recipe but substitute 3 teaspoons (more or less to your taste) peppermint extract and use 5-10 drops green food coloring depending the color you want it to be)
6 tablespoons heavy cream
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
6 ounces dark chocolate (finely chopped)
Fudge Instructions are for the Orange cream Fudge but you can substitute ingredients for Strawberry cream or Mint cream Fudge.
Line with foil then grease a 13-inch x 9-inch pan with 1-1/2 teaspoons butter and set aside. Putting foil makes for easy removal and clean up.
In a heavy saucepan, combine sugar, cream and remaining butter. Cook and stir over low heat until sugar is dissolved. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 4 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in chips and marshmallow creme until smooth.
Move quickly because the fudge begins to set very fast.
Add orange extract and food coloring to the mixture; stir until blended.
Pour into prepared pan. Cover and refrigerate, make your ganache while the fudge is cooling.
Heat the cream and butter in a small sauce pan until just before it boils.
Pour the cream and butter over the chocolate in a bowl. Stir until smooth.
Pour the ganache over the fudge and refrigerate. Slice when chilled.
