Classic fudge recipe with an orange twist.


  • 3 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 2/3 cup of NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
  • 1.5 cups of NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
  • 1 jar of marshmallow creme
  • 1 cup of chopped pecans
  • 3/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp. orange extract
  • zest of 1 orange
  • 2 tsp sea salt


  1. Place sugar, butter, and NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk in a 3-quart heavy saucepan. Bring to full rolling boil on medium heat, stirring constantly with wooden spoon. Boil until candy thermometer reaches 234ºF, stirring constantly to prevent scorching. I like to wait just until little brown specks appear in the mixture. Remove from heat.
  2. Add NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels and marshmallow; stir until melted. Add pecans, vanilla extract, orange extract, and orange zest; mix well.
  3. Pour immediately into a buttered oblong glass pan ; spread to evenly cover bottom of pan. Cool at room temperature for at least 4 hours ; cut into 1-inch squares. Sprinkle with sea salt if desired.
