Macadamia Orange Fudge Recipe

Macadamia Orange Fudge

Why don’t you try this Macadamia Orange Fudge!  This fudge has a wonderfully intense orange flavor highlighted by the crunchy texture of macadamia nuts.  It brings me back to Hawaii, (I have been to Hawaii 3 times) and I did bring home some fudge from the islands, but it didn’t have the orange flavor added to it.
