Eggnog Fudge

Eggnog fudge… what says Christmas baking more than eggnog? This eggnog fudge is light and creamy, and super fast to make! And may I say that it’s such a pretty Christmas treat too? Be ready to share some of this yummy treat… it’s super-rich! I don’t think the neighbors will mind…

I do recommend using real white chocolate chips over the white “baking chips”. The taste of the baking chips isn’t as rich (or real, let’s be honest) as good white chocolate.

Take note that the fudge goes through a “chunky” stage when you add the white chocolate chips, and it’s a little scary if you’re not expecting it! It goes away. I promise.

Prepare a 9″ x 9″ square cake pan. Line with foil and grease with butter or non-stick cooking spray. In a saucepan combine the butter, sugar and eggnog.

Bring to boil over medium-high heat. Heat until the temperature reaches about 234 degrees.

Stir until chocolate is melted. Note: I panicked at this step because after stirring for another 20 seconds the mixture turned chunky, lumpy, and anything but smooth and pretty. 

I was certain I had done something wrong and my fudge was going to end up in the trash. Not at all! Keep stirring for another minute or so, the fudge will smooth out. Now you need to start working fast at this point! Now stir in the marshmallow cream.

Stir until completely smooth. Pour eggnog fudge into prepared pan and smooth out. Sprinkle with a dusting of freshly grated nutmeg, if you like.
