Eggnog Fudge, a Decadent Holiday Treat

December 11, 2014 3 Comments
I’m not an eggnog lover. It even surprises me, lover of all things seasonal, that I don’t enjoy eggnog. However, I freaking love this eggnog fudge, if that makes any sense at all. It sort of just tastes how I imagine Christmas would taste if it were a flavor. Sweet & spiced, warm & sensory. It’s decadent, which helps you to keep it to just one piece. But it’s just oh-so-good. This was my first year making this type of fudge & I declared after sampling my inaugural piece that this would be a treat I make each & every year.
INGREDIENTS
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup eggnog
  • a pinch of salt
  • 10 1/2 ounces white chocolate, chopped or chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • a jar (7 oz) marshmallow creme
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • extra ground nutmeg to dust the top
DIRECTIONS (adapted from Brown Eyed Baker)
  1. Use parchment paper to line a square 8 inch baking dish.
  2. In a large, heavy saucepan melt together the sugar, butter, eggnog, & salt over medium heat.
  3. Bring all ingredients to a rolling boil, stirring constantly.
  4. Continue to allow mixture to boil, continuously stirring, until temperature reads 234 degrees F.
  5. Remove from heat & immediately stir in chocolate & nutmeg until chocolate is completely melted & smooth.
  6. Add in marshmallow creme & vanilla; stir until completely combined.
  7. Transfer fudge mixture while still warm to the square pan.
  8. Sprinkle additional nutmeg on top.
  9. Transfer to fridge & allow to cool overnight.
  10. Remove fudge from pan & cut into squares. Store in a covered container in the fridge.

 

 

I made my husband take the rest of the batch to work to share with his co-workers because I’m a giving person & that’s just how nice I am….nothing to do with stuffing my face full of fudge at 9:30PM. Ha!

    […] family. I was so inspired by my friend Holly Sosa‘s post this past week showing a recipe for Eggnog Fudge. Well lets just say, that attempt turned out more like icing than fudge. Take two turned out so […]
