Chocolate and Orange Fudge has a classic flavor pairing and comes together so fast in the microwave that you'll be snacking on rich fudge in no time.

Hi Bold Bakers!

Some things are just meant to be, like Chocolate and Orange. Tangy citrus and rich chocolate really compliment each other as chocolate often has fruity notes that are enhanced by the flavor of fresh orange.

My microwave Chocolate and Orange Fudge is one of my favorite ways to combine these two flavors — perfect for the holidays or just because.

How to Make Orange Flavored Fudge

Besides how the flavors compliment one another, one of the best things about chocolate and orange fudge is that it’s so easy to make. To make this lovely flavor variation, you simply make my Microwave Fudge base, then add in fresh orange zest.

If you want to take it a step further, you can even add in orange liquor for that extra hit of citrus.

How Long Does Chocolate and Orange Fudge Last?

My Microwave Fudge is so great to make over the holidays, as it stores wonderfully in an airtight container on the kitchen counter for up to four weeks. I love to make a batch in advance and keep it handy all holiday season, this way chocolate and orange fudge is always waiting for me and I am never waiting for it.

Note: This fudge has the best flavor and texture when stored at room temperature.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups (18oz/510g) bittersweet chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 1 can (14oz/395g) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup (2oz/57g) butter
  • 1 orange, zest
  • 2 tablespoons orange liquor, optional

Instructions

  • Butter and line an 8X8 inch pan with parchment paper, set aside.
  • In a large microwave-safe bowl add the chocolate, sweetened condensed milk, and butter. Microwave for 2 minutes or until the chocolate is just melted. This timing is a based on my microwave which is 1200 Watts, so your cook time may very. (You can also make the fudge over a bain-marie) 
  • Once melted, stir to combine and whisk in the orange liquor and zest. Do not be tempted to over-mix the fudge as this can cause it to separate. 
  • Transfer the fudge to the prepared tin, smooth out the top then garnish more orange zest.
  • Allow to set in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours to overnight. 
  • Remove from the fridge and cut into 16 squares. Cover and store in an airtight container for up to 4 weeks.

Hi Gemma
I made this last Christmas, it was a big hit with my family. I tried the orange version it was great. I’m going too try the mocha as someone suggested. Sounds like it should be wonderful.

Good Day Gemma: I made your orange chocolate fudge but mistakenly added 2 Tablespoons of orange extract instead of orange liquor. In your opinion, can the fudge be remelted and made into something else or can pecans or walnuts be added to cut the bad orange taste? I would be very appreciative of any suggestions you may have.

I’ve made this before and poured the mixed ingredients into a wreath pan and sprinkled Christmas candy colours on top. Great as a hostess gift.

Hi Gemma
I am not sure what bitter sweet chocolate is?
Would it be something like bourneville or a high percent dark chocolate ?
