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 extract, and just use the red food coloring, make the same way otherwise) or Candy Cane (substitute the orange extract for mint extract, add green food coloring instead of red & yellow, for just green & white, or add some red food coloring to the swirled in "white" section) for a two-toned fudge.
