Eggnog Fudge Ingredients

eggnog fudge raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • ¾ cup eggnog
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 12 ounces white baker’s chocolate, not chocolate chips
  • 2 cups marshmallow crème
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg, divided  

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

MARSHMALLOW CRÈME: This whipped, spreadable version of marshmallows is also known as marshmallow fluff or marshmallow spread. If you can’t get it, you can make your own by heating 32 large marshmallows and 4 teaspoons of corn syrup on the stovetop until melted.

NUTMEG: If you don’t have nutmeg, you could use something else like mace, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, cloves, apple pie spice, or pumpkin pie spice for this homemade fudge recipe.

RUM EXTRACT: To make a spiked eggnog fudge, you could add a teaspoon of rum extract if you wish. 

EGGNOG: Store-bought eggnog or homemade eggnog would both be delicious to make this creamy fudge.

How To Make This Eggnog Fudge Recipe

STEP ONE: Line an 8×8 square pan with parchment paper and lightly spray with cooking spray.

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

The parchment paper makes cleaning up a snap and makes it much easier to remove from your pan when it’s time to slice into squares.

STEP TWO: In a heavy saucepan, combine butter, eggnog, and sugar. Bring it to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-high heat. Continue to boil gently for about ten minutes or until the temperature reaches 234°F (use a candy thermometer to monitor the temperature). This takes about 10 minutes of stirring and boiling.

PRO TIP:

You’ll need to stir the mixture constantly to prevent the sugar from burning.

STEP THREE: Remove the pan from the heat. Immediately stir in the white chocolate. Keep stirring until it’s melted.

STEP FOUR: Stir in the marshmallow crème until completely combined.

STEP SEVEN: Chill in the fridge for at least four hours.

STEP EIGHT: Slice and serve.

    I wouldn’t change a thing! This recipe is perfect the way it is. I might also wrap it up to give as a gift to the special people in my life. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.

    What a great recipe to use eggnog in. I would have to make my own eggnog. I’ve always wanted to but not to many eggnog recipes. I haven’t found a good recipe for eggnog cookies. I would definitely add rum to this.. Growups need a treat while the kids eat cut out cookies.
    Another recipe for the holidays!

    This looks really good! I doubt that I will have time to make a batch this year, as I am about to retire from my full-time job and can’t get any time off for holiday baking. Next year, though, I would like to try it. And I would definitely spike it, although I prefer my eggnog with brandy, so I’d use brandy extract instead.

    I can’t say I’ve tried the yet but it has sparked my imagination and can’t wait to try it.
    Eggnog fudge sounds amazing, think I would absolutely try with rum, the only problem would be does it have to be essence or can I use the real stuff…and if so which one umm white, black, dark, flavoured or spiced.
    The choice is endless.😊
