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.

Terrys chocolate orange obsession! 

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 fudge 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’!

Chocolate + orange

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.

Optional topping

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 chocolate orange pieces and orange sprinkles on top! This is of course optional and you can also decorate to your taste.

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!

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Author: Jane's Patisserie



  • 397 g condensed milk (one tin)
  • 600 g Terry's chocolate orange


  • Terry's chocolate orange chunks
  • Sprinkles


  • Line a tin with parchment paper – I would use a 9″ square 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, stirring 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 until smooth and combined.
  • Pour into the tin and smooth over the mixture – store in the fridge for an hour or so.
  • 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 portion and then return to the fridge for another couple of hours to finish setting – ENJOY!


  • 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
  • I used this tin!

    Does the fudge need to stay refrigerated or can it be left at room temperature? And can you cut up the fudge into pieces straight after removing it from the tin (before the final 2 hours of setting)?

  2. Marjorie on October 11, 2023 at 10:44 pm

    Game changer… Terry’s Chocolate Mint! Same recipe just changed the choc orange for choc mint. Wow… it vanished in the staff room!

  3. Chelsey on April 2, 2023 at 12:56 pm

    Hi Jane! First time I’ve made fudge today but had one question. I melted the chocolate orange pieces in the microwave then mixed in the condensed milk. Within a few seconds the mixture suddenly went really thick! Is this normal? I had real trouble spreading it into the tin as it was like cement. Any ideas what happened? X

    • Jane's Patisserie on April 5, 2023 at 12:57 pm

      Hiya! Try the other method by melting both together – though if it sets fine then there’s no issues! Hope this helps! x

  4. Laura on October 26, 2022 at 8:23 am

    Hi Jane, when I made this last year it included icing sugar in the recipe. Is this no longer required?

    • Jane's Patisserie on October 27, 2022 at 3:13 pm

      Hiya! No, I have since updated the recipe! Hope this helps x

  5. Kate on October 10, 2022 at 9:27 pm

    Mine’s gone oily. Must’ve over beaten it. Tried putting more icing sugar in but it didn’t come back. Let’s see how it sets.

    • Holly on November 13, 2022 at 6:38 am

      Hi Jane mine hasn’t set , I melted the chocolate in the microwave and added the condensed milk. Any tips please ?

    • Jane's Patisserie on November 16, 2022 at 10:12 am

      Hiya! Unfortunately evaporate milk will never work for fudge, it has to be condensed. Hope this helps! x

    Hi Jane,

    I was just wondering when do I add the orange extract? After I melt the chocolate or after the condensed milk and icing sugar?

    • Jane's Patisserie on January 13, 2022 at 12:08 pm

      Hiya! Add it in after the condensed milk and icing sugar! Enjoy! x

      My fudge won’t set! I’ve tried freezing it and as soon as I took it out it went runny. Where did I go wrong?!

    • Jane's Patisserie on November 16, 2022 at 9:53 am

      Hiya! Did you use the correct condensed milk? This sounds like you possibly used the light version or evaporated x

  9. Claire Edwards on December 16, 2021 at 8:55 pm

    Hi where do you get your orange extract/oil from?? Thanks claire

    This recipe is amazing instead of melting Terry’s chocolate oranges i use normal milk chocolate and flavor it with orange extract.

    • Jane's Patisserie on April 1, 2021 at 10:56 am

      I’m so glad you love it!x

    I love making this recipe! This is such a fan favourite of my family’s. It’s so full of flavour and so moreish!!

  12. Suzanne on December 14, 2020 at 10:06 pm

    Hi. I’ve just made this for the first time tonight. The chocolate and milk melted really well and went nice and smooth, however on adding that shifted Icing sugar, it’s gone grainy and beating it made no difference. What do I need to do to stop this happening?

    • Jane's Patisserie on December 15, 2020 at 4:16 pm

      Oh no! You can try the recipe without the icing sugar by using 100g more melted chocolate instead if it’s a problem. It may be that it split slightly from the beating

    Omg Jane I have made this today and wow it is amazing I did all in the recipe but the leftover orange pieces has I didn’t have any left over. I got around 30 pieces of fudge.

    The first time I have ever made fudge and definitely now won’t be the last! Super easy to make and so delicious aswell. Budget friendly and perfect as a Christmas gift. My family loved it!

  15. Fay on November 6, 2020 at 6:05 pm


    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?


    • Jane's Patisserie on November 6, 2020 at 7:53 pm

      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?

    • Jane's Patisserie on October 27, 2020 at 7:57 pm

      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!

    • Holly on November 13, 2022 at 6:59 am

      I have used evaporated by accident and it hasn’t set us there a way of fixing it thanks?

    • Jane's Patisserie on November 16, 2022 at 10:12 am

      Hiya! Unfortunately evaporate milk will never work for fudge, it has to be condensed. Hope this helps! x

    Tried making this last night and it was one of the easiest things I have ever made. Delivered some to family this morning and they all love it! Will definitely make this again. Thank you x

  18. Joanne Lawrence on September 10, 2020 at 1:42 pm

    Hi just made this, tastes lovely and very orangey but it’s very oily, not sure what I did wrong, any suggestions ? Thanks

    • Jane's Patisserie on September 11, 2020 at 8:45 am

      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

  19. Rosoe on June 15, 2020 at 3:33 pm

    Hi Jane, can i use a 9×9 brownie tin for this?

    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?

    • Jane's Patisserie on April 8, 2020 at 5:14 pm

      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!)

  22. Tracy Bury on March 3, 2020 at 7:27 am

    Hi Jane. Can your fudges be frozen.

    • Jane's Patisserie on March 3, 2020 at 7:27 pm

      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

    • Jane's Patisserie on April 29, 2019 at 7:28 pm

      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!

    • Judles on April 30, 2019 at 9:07 am

      Thanks Jane x

  24. Marie Turnbull Davison on November 8, 2018 at 10:51 am

    Hi can you freeze any fudge?

    • Jane's Patisserie on November 8, 2018 at 11:26 am

      Yes, you can freeze any condensed milk fudges such as this one.

  25. Cher on September 16, 2018 at 11:45 pm

    Hi i have maybe read wrong but what are the meausurements foe the biscuit base ?

  26. Joanne on December 21, 2017 at 10:42 pm

    HI, I’m thinking of adding chocolate crispy rice cereal for a little crunch. How many cups would you recommend? TIA

  27. Renee on December 10, 2017 at 3:35 am

    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?

    • Jane's Patisserie on December 11, 2017 at 9:55 am

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

    • Shahra on February 22, 2018 at 1:03 pm

      I’ve only just noticed this comment after making the fudge and i only put 1 157gram chocolate orange in, and it tastes fine and of chocolate orange! and without the orange zest. 🙂

    • Cheryl on May 31, 2019 at 5:42 pm

      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

    • Jane's Patisserie on May 31, 2019 at 7:51 pm

      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!

  28. katherine on April 28, 2017 at 2:07 pm

    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.


    • Jane's Patisserie on April 28, 2017 at 5:11 pm

      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.

  29. Lauren Hodgson on February 26, 2017 at 11:45 am

    This looks INCREDIBLE! I am so excited to try it!

    • Jane's Patisserie on February 27, 2017 at 10:53 am

      Oh thank you, Lauren! I hope you love it!! x
