Terry’s Chocolate Orange Fudge!

*This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure for more details!*

Easy, Delicious, and oh so Chocolatey.. Terry’s Chocolate Orange Fudge that is SO easy to make you’ll be making it again and again.

This is officially my NINTH Terry’s Chocolate Orange recipe on my blog… and I am not ashamed. Not even slightly. I knew I wanted to do Chocolate Orange since I posted my Terry’s Chocolate Orange Truffles recipe a few months ago, and I am SO glad that I finally did.

It is HEAVENLY. Like, I struggled to only eat a respectable amount of the fudge to myself. I ended up giving some away for taste tests as I didn’t want to be tooooo unhealthy… but honestly, this is a cake blog… I give up with being ‘healthy’!

I have again used the classic idea of a Condensed Milk fudge recipe as they are just too damn easy and delicious. I was a bit wary however of trying a Terry’s Chocolate Orange flavoured one as sometimes using Terry’s it can cause a bit of difficulty because of the Orange oils in the chocolate.

For example, I find making a chocolate orange buttercream reasonably difficult sometimes if you want a strong flavour, because its more prone to splitting! However, using it with the condensed milk it worked an absolute charm and was so silky smooth I couldn’t cope.

I didn’t feel the need to put anything crunchy into this fudge like I have all of my others, but I would suggest using a crunchy biscuit for example, as using Terry’s pieces would just melt and be a little pointless.

The only slight snag I had with using this chocolate, is that its not obvious as to what it is, unless you decorate it accordingly… so hello orange chocolate drizzle on top! This is of course optional, but i actually liked the flavour of the white chocolate on the top as well.

Recipe Updated December 2018 – The reason I decided to update this recipe, was to make it simpler! The original recipe details are listed below, but honestly this is so much easier! Also, it’s damn delicious. As always, the decoration is optional anyway!

Original Recipe – same as it is now, however the 25g butter was added in to the chocolate, and I used 400g, rather than 500g of Terry’s! If you want to make this recipe with regular chocolate, use 500g of Milk or Dark Chocolate, and add in 2tsps of Orange Extract!

Ingredients

Fudge

  • 397 g Condensed Milk (one tin)
  • 500 g Terry's Chocolate Orange
  • 125 g Icing Sugar

Topping

  • 75 g White Chocolate
  • Orange Food Colouring
  • Terry's Chocolate Orange chunks
  • Sprinkles

Instructions

  • Line a tin with parchment paper – I would use a 7x10″ brownie tin as it makes a nice depth of fudge!
  • Put the Condensed Milk and Terry’s Chocolate Orange pieces into a deep heavy based pan and melt on a low heat, stiring often so that the chocolate doesn’t catch on the bottom and burn and so that all the ingredients mix together well.
  • Alternatively, melt the Chocolate in the microwave in short bursts, then beat in the Condensed Milk with a spatula till smooth and combined.
  • Once melted, tip in the sifted icing sugar and combine well, it make take a bit of beating. Pour into the tin and smooth over the mixture – store in the fridge for an hour or so.
  • Melt the White Chocolate and mix with the Orange Food Colouring to get some orange chocolate… drizzle over the fudge, and sprinkle on some Orange Sprinkles, and any spare bits of Terry’s Chocolate Orange!
  • Leave the fudge to set for at least 3-4 hours, or overnight! Once set – remove from the tin and cut into the squares (I cut mine 6×6) , return to the fridge for another couple of hours to finish setting – ENJOY!

Notes

  • I personally wouldn’t bother putting chunks of the chocolate orange through the fudge, as the fudge is already chocoaltey orangey enough – but if you want to put something crunchy in, use anything you like!
  • This recipe will last better in the fridge for up to 2-3 weeks if it manages to last that long – you can also easily half or double the recipe, the setting times will just change slightly.
  • If you want to make this cheaper, use regular milk or dark chocolate, and add in 2 tsps of orange extract! 
  • Using icing sugar is optional - but without I would use 100g more chocolate!

ENJOY!

    Hello,

    Would I be able to substitute the chocolate for the new white chocolate orange or would I need to alter the recipe in any other way?

    Thanks

      Often I find you need more white chocolate compared to dark and milk – I haven’t tried it with the white chocolate orange yet, but I would say you would need at least 200g more!

    Hiya Jane,

    I just tried this recipe and mine doesn’t look like it will set (it’s been 4 hours), please could you advise?

      Did you definitely use condensed milk? Sometimes people use evaporated milk by accident and they are very different things. Other than that, it may just need to be kept in the fridge over night or put in the freezer for a while!

      That means it might have split slightly – this can happen from over mixing. You can try adding in less icing sugar, or none, and increasing the chocolate by about 50-75g to see if it helps? x

    Hi Jane, This was the most delicious fudge I have ever tasted! I used 2 standard Terry’s chocolate oranges and 200g of milk chocolate (just cheap bars) left out the icing sugar but added butter as in your original recipe.
    Didn’t do the topping but put miniature chocolate orange segments on top, perfect!
    Need to make more as it didn’t last long! Thank you for your amazing recipes.

    Tried this recipe and everyone loved it! Do you think I could substitute the chocolate orange for white chocolate?

      Ahh yay! Theoretically yes, but I would advise using 100g more if doing white chocolate (As the fewer cocoa solids, the softer it sets, so generally you need more!)

      Generally yes! I wouldn’t for the lemon meringue though as it could go a little soft!

    Hi Jane, I’m about to make this in a couple of days, looks delicious. Just to confirm it’s 500 g of chocolate or chocolate orange as stated in the ingredients as previously in the write up it mentions 450 g (used to be 400 g)? And would I still add just 2 teaspoons of orange oil to the 500 g of milk chocolate. Thanks

      Sorry about that, it’s been updated a few times! I believe the 500g is best (but the 400/450 does still work). And yes, if using normal milk chocolate instead of Terrys chocolate orange, I’d add the orange flavouring so it tastes like chocolate orange!

    Hi there, I’ve noticed it says 400g Terrys chocolate orange in the recipe, that’s a HUGE chocolate orange . Do we need to melt a few Terrys Chocolate oranges for the fudge or is that a typo?

      Nope, thats the correct amount! You need 400g total.

      Hi jane

      I’ve just made the fudge yum it tastes amazing only thing is, after I let the fudge set in the fridge for an hour I took it out to add the white chocolate on top but I had streaks of condensed milk in the fudge? Is this normal, I followed the video of melting the chocolate then adding the milk from the tin and giving it a good mix before adding the sugar is this correct?
      Thank you xxx

      I’ve never ever seen streaks of condensed milk before – it might actually be the chocolate?! Unless you didn’t mix it well enough, that’s the only way it could be the condensed milk! Either way it shouldn’t affect the taste or set!

    hi,
    this fudge is delicious thank you so much … however when I have made it, it is very soft and doesn’t stay very firm once out of the fridge. can you add more icing sugar, or should I be whisking it for longer.

      Hiya – it’s meant to be stored in the fridge permanently because its condensed milk fudge and can’t be stored at room temp, so it wouldn’t become soft if it had been kept out.
