Creamy, extremely rich eggnog fudge! Christmas in your mouth? I think so!
We are not exactly chocolate-lovers in this family. We can appreciate it, but we just don’t care too much about it.
White chocolate though… that is a whole ‘nother story. At least for my husband it is!
If you like eggnog, try this fudge. It’s so fun!
(This is a very rich fudge. I am not exaggerating on that. You may even want to put a layer of this on top of a layer of regular chocolate fudge to balance it out! And please… cut the squares tiny!)
Creamy Eggnog Fudge Recipe
adapted from Recipe Girl
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup eggnog
1 3/4 cup good-quality white chocolate chips
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg (+ more for garnish!)
1 (7oz) jar marshmallow creme
1 teaspoon rum extract
Line an 8 or 9″ square baking dish with foil. Butter the foil generously.
In a heavy-duty 3qt saucepan, combine the sugar, butter and eggnog. Bring to a rolling boil, stirring constantly.
Boil for 8-10 minutes, stirring constantly (until a candy thermometer has reached and stayed at 234ºF for a bit).
Remove from the heat and stir in the white chocolate and nutmeg until smooth.
Stir in the marshmallow creme and rum extract until very smooth and blended and then spread the fudge into the prepared pan.
Let cool completely in the fridge before cutting.
Store in tupperware in the fridge for up to a week, or in the freezer for a few months (yeah, right…) :o)
