Easy Holiday Fudge

I always get so excited to enjoy eggnog during Christmas time. It also makes a great addition to so many recipes, like this homemade fudge, eggnog cookies, eggnog pie and eggnog French toast.

If there’s one thing that screams Christmas time, it’s fudge! I love to make a few different fudge recipes during the holiday season like my 3-ingredient fudge, peanut butter chocolate fudge or snickerdoodle fudge and of course this eggnog fudge is always included. It’s perfectly creamy, chocolaty and has amazing eggnog flavor.

The best part about this recipe is that it’s super easy to whip up and comes together in about 30 minutes along with this peppermint bark. Then just place it in the fridge or freezer and you’ll have the perfect sweet treat on hand to enjoy whenever you need a little pick me up. :)

It also makes a great edible gift and is always a hit with anyone that tries it. Just wrap the fudge in cellophane and add a cute Christmas tag. Gifts from the kitchen are always the best!

Ingredients

  • Sugar: I use granulated sugar
  • Butter: I used salted. If you use unsalted, then add a pinch of salt.
  • Eggnog: My favorite brand is Darigold.
  • White baking chocolate: I love to use Ghiradelli.
  • Ground nutmeg: this add the perfect flavor.
  • Marshmallow creme: this creme will make the fudge nice and creamy.
  • Vanilla extract: I like to use pure vanilla extract for great flavor.

How to Make Eggnog Fudge

Step 1: Boil the Sugar, Butter and Eggnog

In a medium saucepan over medium-heat, bring the sugar, butter and eggnog to a full boil. Continue to let boil until a candy thermometer reaches 234°F. Remember to stir the mixture constantly the whole time to prevent scorching.

Step 2: Add Remaining Ingredients

Remove from heat and add in the white chocolate and nutmeg, stirring until the chocolate is melted. Then immediately stir in the marshmallow creme and vanilla extract. Beat with an electric mixer until well blended.

Step 3: Pour in Dish and Refrigerate

Pour the mixture into a buttered or parchment-lined 8×8″ pan and sprinkle extra nutmeg on top. Place in refrigerator until cool, then cut into squares.

Does Fudge Have to be Refrigerated?

Yes, you’ll need to store this eggnog fudge in the refrigerator. It will keep for up to 2 weeks if chilled in an airtight container in the fridge.

Freezing Tips

Another great thing about this fudge recipe is that it’s great for freezing! Simply stick it in an airtight container or freezer bag and store in freezer for up to one month.

    Do you think almond milk eggnog would work in this recipe?

      I haven’t tried, but I’m afraid it wouldn’t have enough fat to hold the shape.
