The next fudge on our list is pine nut and orange fudge. When I first heard my dad was making this I was a little skeptical about how it would taste. However, it is so fresh and creamy!!! I love it. Speaking of my dad, here he is in all of his fudge making glory. Soooooo cute!
You start by toasting the pine nuts.
Get your base boiling and add your orange zest.
Mix fudge until it becomes thick and creamy and no longer glossy.
Stir in the toasted pine nuts and transfer into a prepared pan for cooling. Chill until firm enough to cut (about 1 hour).
Cut into squares and share with all your friends!
2 1/4 cups sugar
3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup sour cream
1/3 cup water
2 tbs unsalted butter – at room temp.
2 tbs light corn syrup
3/4 cup toasted pine nuts
1. Line a 9x5x3 inch pan with aluminum foil.
2. Combine sugar, cream, milk, sour cream, water, butter, corn syrup and orange peel in a saucepan. Stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves (approx. 15 min.). Use a clip on thermometer and increase heat to a high boil. Reduce heat to medium-high and cook until thermometer registers 234 F. Stir frequently.
3. Pour mixture into a bowl and mix fudge until thick and creamy (approx. 5 mins. DO NOT scrape the sides of the saucepan). Mix in pine nuts and transfer fudge into the prepared pan. Press and flatten into an even layer. Chill for about 1 hour until firm enough to cut.
