Orange Creamsicle Fudge Recipe (2024)

Orange Creamsicle Fudge Recipe (1)

You are going to love this easy and delicious Orange Creamsicle Fudge. There is no better flavor in the world than orange creamsicle.

We love the sweet combination of vanilla and orange and it’s delicious in a fudge! One bite of this fudge, and you’ll be making it over and over.

Orange cream fudge is one of our favorites, but the options are endless when it comes to easy fudge recipes. You can do rocky road fudge, white fudge, peppermint fudge for the holiday season, or other flavors for an easy dessert. The remaining fudge keeps well, too, in an airtight container, so you can enjoy it for a few days! Just store fudge in the fridge and you’re good to go. There’s nothing better than creamy orange fudge! We also love how the swirl of color breaks up the white color in this easy recipe. While this has an orange color with an orange flavor, you can use different color with different flavors as well!

You can even put things on top of the fudge too. Nuts, toffee, candy, small pieces of chocolate – it’s so much fun to create tons of other sweet options for fudge! You can even use different toppings for individual pieces. The good news is that the end result will always be great!

Tips on how to make Orange Creamsicle Fudge:

  • The recipe calls for heavy cream. This recipe will not work with milk, or other substitutes. For best results we recommend using heavy cream.
  • Be sure to grease your 9 x 13 inch pan. If you don’t the fudge may stick to the pan, and the presentation won’t look as good. You could also use parchment or wax paper, and place it in the bottom of the pan.
  • This fudge doesn’t set up as well, if it is not refrigerated. It works best when there is cold applied and surrounding it. It will definitely harden quicker.

  2. Erin @ Miss Scrambled Egg says:

    Wow. This looks like the perfect treat for a summer day. Creamiscles were a favorite of mine growing up as well. :)

  3. Jeanette says:

    Such a creative recipe! My kids would love this. :)

  4. Krista says:

    Oh my this looks delicious! My kids are huge creamsicle fans,

  5. PAMMY OWENS says:

    i am really happy to try and make this fudge

  6. Sean says:

    I made this last night & followed the directions to a tee. I took my sugar mix up to the softball stage at almost 240 degrees using a candy thermometer. However my fudge came out gritty. Why did this happen? Could this been a result of the way I combined those ingredients? I put all the sugar, butter, & cream in a pot all together before I turned the heat on. Still tastes really good, but it's just gritty, i'm assuming because all of the sugar didn't melt. Could it be that my thermometer is not accurate?

  7. Lachelle says:

    I think that the sugar/butter/cream mixture needs to be boiled for a few minutes after it reaches the soft ball stage. I was sad that mine turned out pretty gritty also and that's the only thing that I can think that I did wrong!

  8. Roger says:

    As this recipe is presented, I'd recommend moving along and trying something else. The flavor is nice, but the texture is wrong. I gave it a couple of tries and the consistency is slightly gritty which takes away too much. I've had orange creamsicle fudge from the shops and it can be made without being gritty, so I'm going to move on and look for something new.

  9. Randi says:

    Should have read the reviews, mine ended up gritty also.

  10. Cyd says:

    We have't had a problem with this fudge. There are couple of secrets when making fudge so that it doesn't turn gritty. One is be sure you are using a pure cane sugar like C&H. Another secret is to stir while it gets to the desired temp, then stop after you reach the desired temp. So the key to smooth yet firm fudge is to first bring the mixture to a high enough concentration and then let it cool off somewhat when removing from heat before starting to stir in the other ingredients. And once you do start to stir, stir fanatically and without stopping for the finest, creamiest texture. Hope this helps.

  11. Lori Brooks says:

    This fudge is gritty!! Dont use this recipie. I wish i had read comments before. I have made this with perfect results before. I used a different recipie which called for evaporated milk. I lost the one i used so went with this one. Big mistake. So disapointed.

  12. Gerri says:

    I have made this fudge every year since I first saw the recipe. Everyone who eats who eats it prefers it to regular fudge. It is so good and creamy and pretty besides. It is a big hit.

  13. karen bowler says:

    You don't want to stir constantly, it will disturb the crystals in the sugar and cause them to stick to the side of the pan. You should use a brush with water to rinse crystals down or keep the lid on and leave the mixture alone for the most part and let the moisture from the lid to run down and keep the sides clean.

  14. Ann Covington says:

    This is the first fudge I've ever made.It was easy and delicious.I've made it several more times and it has come out perfect.It was a hit with my family and my coworkers.I will be making it again.

  15. Cyd says:

    Thanks Ann for leaving us a nice comment on the Orange Creamsicle Fudge. We are so glad that you liked it. Have a great week!

  16. dorothy hampton says:

    really gritty no orange taste very dissatisfied with recipe.

  17. Jelly Bean says:

    The is the fourth time I've made this fudge. I've tried some suggestions...putting a lid on it and let the moisture drip down the sides, cooking it longer...etc. it seems no matter what I do, it comes out gritty! Makes me very sad. 😢

  18. Amber says:

    Not gritty at all, and tastes exactly like a creamsicle. Just make sure to constantly stir your incredients!

  19. Nisha says:

    What is marshmallow cream, can you use marshmallows instead?

  20. Cyd says:

    You can substitute with marshmallows. Here are some links with conversion amounts using marshmallows for marshmallow creme.

  21. Mslolo64 says:

    I think the recipe should be clear that, not only does it need to reach soft ball temperature (235-240) while on medium heat, you need to keep it there for about 5 mins. (stirring constantly so it doesn’t scorch) Otherwise, just as with regular chocolate fudge, the sugar will not thoroughly cook, resulting in the grit you’re describing. Hope this helps!

  22. Kulsoom says:

    Couldn’t use Orange Essence as it had Alcohol (I’m a Muslim)... so I tried substituting Orange Essence with a sachet of Orange flavored KoolAid powdered drink mix.Came out fantastic and is a big hit!

  23. Linda Cordes says:

    It’s gritty because recipe says boil a few mins after reaching soft ball stage. If u notice all other recipes says remove when it gets to hard ball stage

  24. Regina says:

    I’ve use this recipe for years the only difference is my recipe calls for 3/4 of whipping cream but my problem is I can’t get it out of the pan without making a mess do you have any suggestions?

  25. Cindy Repke says:

    This would've been perfect but I think 3 Cups of sugar is way too much. I love my sweets but this turned out gritty. There was another recipe that called for 1 1/2 C. sugar so I think I'll try that next time. Love the orange flavor, would've been great if it wasn't so sugary. If you need pure cane sugar you should have included that in the recipe.

  26. Trish says:

    I’m not quite sure about this recipe. I ended up with sugar crystals that didn’t completely dissolve and the fudge is crunchy with tiny little sugar crystals throughout. I have used other recipes in the past with marshmallow cream that did not have this problem. Otherwise delicious.

    Orange Creamsicle Fudge Recipe (19)

  27. Michelle says:

    I wish I would have read all the reviews before I made this recipe. Awesome taste, absolutely terrible grainy texture (as sooo many of the reviews stated). I followed the recipe to a T and it was gritty and grainy. Made a different peanut butter chocolate fudge recipe the same day and it turned out amazing. Wish this recipe turned out because the ingredients are costly to have them wasted. When so many reviewers claim the same thing, there must be an error in either ingredients/amounts/method

  28. Michelle says:

    gritty and grainy

  29. Mary Fitz says:

    Is it possible to use marshmallows instead of the marshmallow cream.

  30. Momma Cyd says:

    Yes, it is possible. You will need to add a little corn syrup when using it for fudge. Here is the link with the info -

  31. Kathy says:

    I just found this recipe and am making it tonight after work. Looks devine

  32. Alexis says:

    I loved it but I had to figure out you need to reheat the cup of mixture your supposed to take out if it sits for a bit it starts to harden up and become solid
