Easy Eggnog Fudge Recipe

Who doesn’t love fudge? Especially around the holidays. I already have so many fudge recipes, but I think I add at least one new recipe to my arsenal every year. This eggnog fudge has become one of my all-time favorite fudge recipes.

I am a huge lover of eggnog and pretty much anything that is eggnog flavored. Whenever I see the cartons of it in the aisles at the grocery store, I get giddy. It instantly sends me into holiday mode. So, the thought of combining it with another love of mine, fudge, had me over the moon.

I love to make easy fudge like this around the holidays, not only so we can snack on it (obviously!) but also because it makes for a really simple homemade holiday gift. I will buy some festive baggies, and attach a small greeting card to them, with the fudge inside. They are always a huge hit! 

Eggnog Fudge cut into pieces

Ingredients

  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • ¾ cup eggnog
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 12 ounces white bakers chocolate (not chocolate chips)
  • 2 cups marshmallow créme
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg (divided)

Additions & Substitutions

BUTTER: Be sure that you are using unsalted butter, as called for in the ingredients list. If you use salted butter, it will change the overall taste of your fudge.

NUTMEG: The sprinkled nutmeg is an optional garnish. You could add this to just half of your fudge, all of it, or you could leave it off completely. This is totally up to you!

OTHER GARNISH IDEAS: If you prefer, you can swap out the nutmeg garnish for something else. Some of my favorite ideas are mini chocolate chips (white or milk chocolate), hot cocoa powder, cinnamon, or chocolate drizzle. Really, the sky’s the limit when it comes to the options for things you could top off this fudge with!

How to Make Eggnog Fudge:

  1. BOIL: butter, eggnog, and sugar in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-high, continue to boil until 234 degrees F. Remove mixture from heat.
  2. STIR: in the white chocolate until melted and then stir in the marshmallow créme.
  3. ADD: vanilla and nutmeg.
  4. SPREAD: in 8×8 baking dish lined with parchment paper and sprayed with cooking spray.
  5. SPRINKLE: nutmeg over the top.
  6. CHILL: in the fridge for 4 hours.
  7. CUT: into desired size pieces.

Tips for Making Homemade Fudge:

Tip 1: Don’t forget to line your baking dish with parchment paper! It will make your life so much easier when you cut your pieces and remove the fudge from the pan. 

Tip 2: When cutting your fudge into pieces, I recommend cutting them into smaller pieces. This fudge can be really sweet and rich. While people think they want a huge piece, usually just a bite-size piece will suffice! Cutting it smaller usually means less waste, and your pan of fudge can go further.

How to Store Homemade Fudge:

Store leftovers in a sealed food storage container for 4-5 days in the fridge. You can also put your leftover fudge in the freezer. Personally, I like it a little bit frozen. It’s almost like an ice cream treat when you take it out of the freezer. Yum!
