Summer Citrus Fudge

Citrus is the refreshing flavor of summer.
And this Citrus Fudge goes perfect with a tall glass of lemonade!

You can change up the flavor and looks of this fudge very easily.

Use just lemon extract and yellow food coloring.
Or just orange extract and orange food coloring,
or use both extracts for a more citrus flavor.

Summer Citrus Fudge
2-1/2 cups sugar  
2/3 cup evaporated milk 
1/2 cup butter, cubed
1 package (10 to 12 ounces) white baking chips
1 7 oz jar marshmallow creme 
2 tsp orange extract 
1 tsp lemon extract
(or just 3 tsp orange)
12 drops yellow food coloring 
                                                             9 drops red food coloring  

(Or 1 1/2 tsp orange gel coloring)

Line a 13-in. x 9-in. pan with foil.
