Super easy! Love the chocolate/orange combination. If you line the pan with enough parchment paper to cover the sides and bottom with a little extra to fold over the pan's edges, you can easily lift the fudge out of the pan when you're ready to cut it into squares. I cut it with a pizza cutter which made it very easy, and the pan didn't need to be washed!! Read More

i found the orange flavor to be a little overwhelming kind of burned the tongue in the aftertaste. Maybe I just got a flavorful orange or didn't do it right. Read More

This was good but not the best fudge I've had. It was simple to make. I would add extra orange peel to the recipe because I really like the taste of orange and chocolate mixed and it the orange taste wasn't that strong. Read More

Orange chocolate flavor combination is wonderful. It literally took me about 5 minutes to make this fudge last night and this morning it was set and ready to devour. I added 1/2 teaspoon orange extract to up the orange flavor and it was perfect. I also skipped the pecans. This was so easy and so good I will for sure be making it again! Read More

Thsi is a very easy and almost always 'goofproof' way to make fudge. I added orange extract (1 tsp) in addtion to the zest as I found the orange flavor a little weak. Orange and chocolate together are heaven! It's best the next day so make it ahead wrap in wax paper and refrigerate. Read More
