Orange Creamsicle Fudge Bites

by aimee @ shugarysweets on June 1, 2011

I love orange flavored treats. I mean, I really really love them. You all can have your chocolate, your peanut butter…but I want orange. Root beer floats rock, too. I admit it. I am addicted. During my pregnancy with my oldest I pretty much had one daily. But Orange Dreamsicles? Heavenly. My grandma always had these in her freezer, along with ice cream bars and fudgesicles. I always went for the Orange bar. These cute little bites of orange fudge taste like an orange creamsicle. No really they do. Except they aren’t frozen. Or ice cream. Other than that…

Hmmm. They look like ice cream. But they are not. I have an obsession with making things bite size right now. Hence the cookie dough bitesbanana truffle sundae bites, and the frozen banana bites. If I had any sort of self control and only ate ONE bite, then I can see how convenient that would be, and how good for dieting, etc. However, I eat bite after bite after bite. I can’t stop they are too good. You know what that means? My husbands co-workers are in for a nice treat..off they go! Enjoy!

These look fantastic. I will be making them to send to my son at college! He will love them. I know what you mean about making things and then giving them away. I give food to my husbands friends on a weekly basis. If I keep it, I will eat it! Especially the sweet stuff!!

I just wanted to let you know, I made two batches of this last night and followed the recipe to a T. I have no idea why, but they never set up…. just like goop. I added some powdered sugar and they were fine. But wow… following the recipe as it was written was a huge fail for me. I’m wondering if there was an ingredient you failed to mention in this recipe? Because I made two batches, followed the recipe each time and both batches came out like goop, sticky and runny?! I was so frustrated. I’ve followed your recipe for egg nog truffles in the past and they were perfect. This one I had to add a lot of powdered sugar for it to be a success. How did yours set? I had mine in the fridge overnight and then in the freezer for 3 hours.

Aimee September 8, 2012 at 9:45 pm

I am so sorry this was a fail for you. I double checked the recipe ingredients and they are all there. I’ve made this several times and have had no problems. When you bring the mixture to a rolling boil, do you allow it to boil the full 4 minutes? Otherwise I am at a loss why it wouldn’t see for you. I usually just refrigerate overnight or at least 2 hours.
