Orange Fudge

A friend asked if I could make orange fudge 3 years ago, I did not have a recipe for it and she suggested adding orange extract and dye to my Vanilla Fudge recipe (yes, it's in my Recipe Box), but I never got around to trying it. Around that same time a distant cousin posted on Facebook that she'd made eggnog fudge and I asked her for the recipe, which my family loved! So I made some changes to the flavoring and this was the result. EDITED 6-24-17: I changed a couple of ingredients to make the fudge a little firmer so it won't melt outside the refrigerator.
