Orange Creamcicle Fudge

3/4 cup butter, no substitutions
3 cups sugar
3/4 cup whipping cream
1 pkg. (10 - 12 oz.) vanilla chips
1 jar (7oz.) marshmallow creme
3 tsp. orange extract
12 drops yellow food coloring
5 drops red food coloring

Butter a 9x13 pan. In a heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, cream and butter. Cook and stir over low heat until the sugar is dissolved. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 4 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in chips and marshmallow creme until smooth.
Remove 1 cup and set aside. Add orange extract and food colorings to remaining mixture; stir until blended. Pour into prepared pan. Drop the reserved marshmallow mixture by tablespoonfuls over top; cut through mixture with a knife to swirl. Cover and refrigerate until set. Makes about 2 1/2 pounds.

**Side Notes : Can be modified to make Strawberries & Cream (substitute the Orange Extract for Strawberry, and just use red food coloring, make the same way otherwise); Candy Cane (substitute the orange for mint extract, add green food coloring instead, for just green & white, or add some red food coloring to the swirled in "white" section). I'll add pictures of the Strawberries & Cream & Candy Cane varieties I've made.
