Eggnog Fudge

This is like eating pure sugar that has been soaked in eggnog- which is what I’d expect from the titular “Eggnog” and “Fudge.” I don’t even like eggnog and I found this fudge to be irresistible! An uber sweet and insanely flavorful creation, it is made in two steps. First, you boil butter, sugar, and eggnog until the mixture reaches 234 degrees. Second, you take it off the stove and add white chocolate and marshmallow fluff. Flavor with a dash of vanilla and nutmeg and then it’s just a waiting game. Just a word of advice: Be patient. While my eggnog mixture came to a boil pretty quickly, it took forever to reach 234 degrees. And I thought that when I added the white chocolate to that very hot mixture, it would melt instantly; but it took a lot of stirring for the chocolate to melt. Just stick with it- I promise this recipe is worth it. Actually, this may be the only way you want your eggnog from now on: Fudged.

 ½ cup Butter
 ¾ cup Eggnog
 2 cups Sugar
 2 cups White chocolate chips
 7 oz Marshmallows
 2 tsp Vanilla
 ½ tsp Nutmeg

1

In a saucepan, combine the butter, eggnog, and sugar. Bring to a boil and allow to boil until the mixture reaches 234 degrees on a candy thermometer (this took longer than I expected, but I promise it will eventually happen.) Remove from heat and immediately add the white chocolate chips. Stir until melted and the mixture is smooth.

2

(Again, this took longer than I thought it would because the mixture gets so hot. It just takes a lot of stirring.) Add the fluff, vanilla, and nutmeg; mixing until thoroughly combined. Pour into a parchment paper lined 9 x 9 pan. Sprinkle additional nutmeg on top to garnish. Allow to set completely before serving.
