Creamy Eggnog Fudge
Eggnog isn't around all year round, so it's always an exciting time when it's out in stores. The creamy goodness of eggnog is loved by most people during the holidays, but there are more ways to use it than just drinking it. It turns out there are a variety of dessert recipes you can use delicious eggnog in including this recipe for fudge candy. Eggnog is made with milk or cream, sugar, and whipped eggs and those eggs are what gives it the nice texture. Many people drink it with spirits like brandy, rum, and bourbon but it can be good all on its own with some ice and a cinnamon stick with a sprinkle of nutmeg. In more recent years there have been eggnog lates served at coffee houses and even vegan versions of eggnog so the dairy-free crowd can enjoy it too. Usually, a dairy-free eggnog is made with creamy coconut milk or a creamy almond milk and some honey or dates for a sweetener. Krystle from Baking Beauty even shares a recipe for eggnog cheesecake that sounds divine.
This eggnog fudge recipe would be a perfect recipe for the holidays, or maybe you could even make some when eggnog is available and freeze it to enjoy a taste in a month or so. All you need for this recipe is some eggnog, of course, as well as some butter, sugar, white chocolate chips, marshmallow cream fluff, vanilla and nutmeg. Generally, fudge is pretty easy to make, and this recipe for fudge candy is no different. You mix all of the ingredients together in a saucepan on the stove over medium heat bringing everything to a boil. Then you have to wait until the mixture reaches a temperature of 234 degrees. You then pour the mixture into a 9-inch by 9-inch pan. It helps to line the pan with tin foil and to also spray or coat it with some oil, so it doesn't stick to the pan. Then, you allow the fudge to set in the fridge, and once it's hardened, you can cut it into little cube pieces or larger chunks. This would be the perfect dessert to serve at a holiday party or to give away as a gift to someone who loves eggnog and fudge.
Krystle also has a ton of other great recipes including more dessert recipes and meal ideas as well. She got the idea to start writing her blog following in the footsteps of the women in her family who would write about all of the family holidays they've shared together. So Krystle decided to keep the tradition alive by sharing all of her favourite recipes online so others could try them out too. She's been at it since 2011 and shows no signs of stopping which is great because her recipes are so great. There are also other types of fudge she creates including a mint chocolate chip fudge and a candy corn fudge as well as a pumpkin fudge which would be great for Thanksgiving time. At one point she even did a fudge giveaway where she teamed up with other bloggers to win a half pound box of fudge in the flavour of their choice. Sounds like a pretty awesome giveaway. She also has other giveaways happening on her page from time to time so make sure you keep an eye on it so you can take part in one of them sometime. They are only open to the US though. Give this amazing eggnog fudge recipe a try and maybe make it a new holiday treat tradition.***
