Eggnog Fudge is a decadent Christmas treat that’s rich and creamy and so easy to make that you can whip it up in a flash.
If eggnog doesn’t convince you to make this fudge during the Christmas season, maybe the marshmallow creme and white chocolate will put you over the edge. And by the way, if you love marshmallows, you’ve gotta see these cute Hot Cocoa Marshmallow Cookie Cups and Marshmallow Penguin Pops!)
Some people in our family are crazy for eggnog. Some others, not so much. Eggnog is one of those things that put people on one side of the line or the other.
There doesn’t seem to be much middle of the road in the eggnog game.
I personally love it. I look forward to it all year long.
Even people who don’t like eggnog will like this.
The thickness of eggnog puts some people off, to be sure. It’s not a drink for everyone.
If there’s someone in your family who doesn’t love that about eggnog, this fudge will allow them to have a little of the flavor without drinking it.
The eggnog is not overpowering.
I think the pairing with white chocolate and marshmallow creme creates a sweet candy that’s just right.
If you want to dial it back even more, just skip the dusting of nutmeg on the top.
The finished product won’t look nearly as darling, but it’s definitely not going to ruin your fudge if you choose not to use it.
Make a gift of it!
