Grown-up creamsicle fudge

This is a divine variation on your basic vanilla fudge. Great for gift-giving, too.

3c brown sugar

1c butter

1/3c half-and-half cream

1/3c Triple Sec (or other orange liqueur–USE THE EXPENSIVE STUFF!)

3c icing sugar

1tsp vanilla extract

grated zest of one orange

Over medium heat, combine brown sugar, butter and evaporated milk until melted. Heat until it starts to bubble, once it’s boiling, let it go for six minutes on medium heat.

Turn the heat off and add the icing sugar, orange zest and vanilla, stirring rapidly until smooth. Pour into a 9-inch square pan and let chill. Cut into squares just before fudge is completely hard.

    Oh, I forgot to mention: you put in the Triple Sec (or orange liqueur) with the evaporated milk. (I think.) This recipe’s adapted from a basic one a friend gave me, so blame her and not me if it goes wrong!
