But as I have mentioned, my stomach has a different opinion about eggnog….it just can't tolerate me drinking it. I can put a little in my coffee instead of creamer, but any more than that and I get sick.
I know – #FirstWorldProblems
Anyway….I long ago figured out that I can handle eggnog when it has been used to flavor other foods! I started making eggnog cookies several years ago and they are ALWAYS part of my Christmas baking, but this year I decided to give eggnog fudge a try and the results were delicious!
If you have never made fudge before or are afraid to make fudge, don't worry. It really is easy to make. You DO need to make sure that you have a candy thermometer and you cook your fudge mixture to exactly 234 F, but candy thermometers are cheap and you can often even find them in the baking or “gadget” section of your grocery store (especially this time of year!)
Anyway – to make this Eggnog Fudge recipe, you will need:
1/2 cup Butter
3/4 cup Eggnog
2 cup Sugar
12 oz White Chocolate Chips
7 oz Marshmallow Creme
1/2 tsp Nutmeg
2 tsp Vanilla
