We honored my mother this weekend, with a big party to celebrate her 85th birthday. Love you, Mama.
One of my mother’s favorite store bought candies is the old fashioned orange slice gumdrops. Here’s a recipe for a fudge that stars that old timey candy.
Orange Slice Fudge
12 ounces white almond bark
10 to 12 orange slice candy gumdrops, cut into 1/4 inch pieces
12 ounces of sweetened condensed milk
1/2 teaspoon of zest of a clementine
1 teaspoon of either orange extract
A pinch of salt
What to do:
Line a 9×9 pan with aluminum foil.
IIn a microwavable bowl melt the almond bark, a minute at a time in the microwave. Should take 2 minutes. Stir in the rest of the ingredients.
Mix well and pour into lined pan. Chill till firm. Turn out onto a cutting board and cut into smallish pieces. Store the orange slice fudge in the frig in an air tight container.
While the fudge set up in the frig, Mama scraped the mixing bowl, taste testing. Again, love you Mama.
