Easy Orange Fudge #TheLeftoversClub

Easy Orange Fudge #TheLeftoversClub

This month for the #TheLeftoversClub I want it to send and make something different and change the theme a little, no cookies this month, so for my friend Faye Rodriguez I make delicious and super easy Orange Fudge.

Ok, this fudge is very different to any others you have tried, and is very traditional in my country, yes in Costa Rica we make all different kinds of fudge and is call Cajetas. We have so many different flavors like, coconut, peanuts, carrots, etc. But this orange fudge is so fresh and delicious, the flavor of the orange zest cuts the sweets of the sugar and you end up with the perfect dessert after a good lunch or dinner.

I just hope she likes it as much as we love it. And let me know how many pieces of this fudge will you eat.
