Dark Chocolate Orange Fudge
From Meredith Laurence's new cookbook, Blue Jean Chef: Comfortable in the Kitchen.
1–1/2 cups sugar
2/3 cup evaporated milk
1/4 cup butter
7 ounces marshmallow cream
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups bittersweet chocolate chips or chunks
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips or chunks
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 tsp. pure orange extract
2 Tbsp. orange zest, coarsely chopped
Combine the sugar, evaporated milk, butter, marshmallow cream, and salt in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and cook for 5 minutes, stirring regularly.
Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the two different chocolates. Stir until the chocolates have melted and are well combined.
Add the vanilla, orange extracts, and orange zest, then stir.
Pour the fudge into a 9-inch square pan (either buttered well, lined with parchment paper, or coated with a nonstick surface), spread the fudge until smooth, and let it cool. When it has set, cut the fudge into squares and enjoy. Store the fudge in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Makes 36 squares.
