Eggnog Fudge


I adore fudge, but it is one of those confections that is so decadent that we reserve it for Christmas. This year I wanted to try a new flavor and came across a recipe on Chocolate, Chocolate, and More that looked fabulous! Hey, we love eggnog! Jonathan was on board that this was to be our flavor of the season.

3/4 cup eggnog minus 2 tablespoons (We love Southern Comfort. Take note, tee-totalers, there is no alcohol in it.)
2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
1 stick butter
2 cups white sugar
1 12oz Package white chocolate baking squares, chopped
1 jar Marshmallow Creme (7 ounces)
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 tablespoons butter (for pan)
A candy thermometer (Or, if you prefer, a meat thermometer)


Line a 9X12 baking dish with aluminum foil and butter it well.


Chop white chocolate into pieces.


In a medium saucepan over medium high heat, combine the stick of butter, eggnog, whipping cream, and sugar. Whisk to blend well. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.


Once boiling, reduce heat to medium. Continue boiling and whisking until temperature reaches 234 degrees (soft ball stage). (Do not place the tip of your thermometer directly onto the bottom of the pan. It needs to be in the middle of the boiling mixture.) If you don’t own a candy thermometer, just grab your husband’s meat thermometer. I’m sure he won’t mind.


Remove from heat and stir in white chocolate pieces.


When all chocolate is melted, whisk in marshmallow creme, nutmeg, and vanilla.


Continue whisking until all ingredients are melted and mixed together well. Pour into buttered dish. Sprinkle the top with additional nutmeg.


Place in fridge to cool for 4-5 hours before slicing into pieces. When completely cooled, turn fudge onto platter and remove aluminum foil. Flip over so that the nutmeg sprinkles are on top. Slice into pieces and enjoy!

We pray that you and your family are gearing up for a lovely Christmas together. While we love rich food and rich gifts, the birth of Christ our Redeemer is the reason we celebrate! Oh come, oh come, Emanuel!
