No Fail Orange Creamsicle Fudge

This No Fail Orange Creamsicle Fudge will add a pretty flair to your summer dessert tables. Easy no bake treats are great when it is too hot to bake!

Over the years we have attempted to play tennis. My hubby and I bought racquets when we were first married and attempted to play a few times. Yeah, I grew up throwing and hitting a baseball with my dad, so hitting a tennis ball gave me problems. You can’t hit a tennis ball the same way. I basically launched it over the fence every single time it came to me. That makes tennis not so much fun for your partner who is always chasing the ball.

Our youngest has a friend who plays tennis, so he has been wanting to go over to the park and play with our old racquets. He also grew up as a cute little baseball player, so a lot of his balls are heading over the fence too. He is way more athletic than I am, so he has learned much faster to hold and hit differently.

Then there is our oldest son. He and I are pretty much on the same level of tennis. Although, I like to think that I don’t look that way when I hit the ball back to him. He kept going after the ball and hitting it like a ninja. You know the move, right? Jump in the air like a flying ninja and hope you connect with the ball. We all were laughing so hard at each other.

I’m thinking that I should just stick to creating fun desserts instead of trying to learn tennis. Although, tennis is much better for my jeans. Hhhhmmm, I might have to keep playing tennis because I do like to munch on M&M blonde brownies a little too much.

A few weeks ago I made a bunch of fudge, sugar cookie bars, and cheesecake parfaits for some school lunches. I made sure to get pictures of all of them because you need these recipes too.

As I was developing the recipes, I decided to go with all summer related desserts. Partly because it’s almost summer, and partly because if I can make and photograph my recipes early, I can spend less time in the kitchen during the hot summer months.

Fudge is one of those treats that can be made in just a few minutes, and it is a hit with everyone. Over the years, I have come to love the easy two ingredient fudge. You know the one, right? Chocolate chips and canned frosting. Seriously, it makes fudge a no brainer. No boiling, no thermometer, no time.

Well, I guess you can’t say no time because it takes about 15 minutes from start to finish, but then you have to let it cool and set.

As I was thinking about summer and fudge, I decided to turn this orange creamsicle poke cake into fudge. I took the two ingredients and turned it into five ingredient fudge. Ok, six when you count the candy on top. A little orange extract and a swirl of color and this fun no fail orange creamsicle fudge was born!

Once you melt the butter, white chips, and frosting together, pour it into two separate bowls. Add the extract and some food coloring to one bowl and mix it in very thoroughly.

Then start dropping spoonfuls of white fudge and orange fudge into a foil lined pan. Spoon about half of each color into the pan, then swirl it gently with a knife. Then repeat with the remaining fudge. Swirl the top one more time and then let it cool for about 10 minutes before adding the candies. If you add them too soon, they will sink to far into the fudge. You want them to sink in slightly but stay on top for the most part.

Then it’s time to wait again. Let the fudge completely cool before trying to cut into it. I like to make fudge the night before so that it can set up over night while I’m sleeping.

Go ahead and cut it into fun little squares once it is cooled and then share it with your friends. Or hide it in the back of your pantry and sneak little pieces every day. I promise I won’t tell.

If you are a huge fan of orange desserts, you need to check out this Sippable Orange Sunshine drink. It would be so refreshing on a hot summer day. Think of all the fun summer desserts you could use this Orange Cream Cheese Frosting on. Cookies, cupcakes, cakes are just a few I’m totally wanting to try! And summer picnics just aren’t the same without a fluff salad. This creamy Tropical Orange Jello Salad looks like the perfect one to try next!
