It's the most wonderful baking time of the year! I whipped up some easy eggnog fudge to add something different to my cookie tray this year.
I'm not going to pretend to be a super fan of eggnog, but put the flavors into fudge and it works out nicely.
From Real Housemoms
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup butter
2/3 cup eggnog
1 tsp nutmeg, plus more for sprinkling
12 oz white chocolate
7 oz marshmallow cream
1 tsp vanilla
1. Grease a 9 inch square pan.**
2. In a medium saucepan combine sugar, butter, eggnog, and nutmeg. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. When it comes to a rolling boil, insert a candy thermometer. Heat to 235 degrees F. This will take about 10 minutes.
3. Remove pan from heat and add white chocolate, vanilla, and marshmallow cream. Stir until mixture is fluffy and has lost its shine.
4. Spread evenly into prepared pan. Cool completely before cutting into squares.
**I found the fudge difficult to get out of the pan, so I would recommend lining it with parchment paper.
Don't be intimidated by the candy thermometer! I just used the digital thermometer I use for cooking meats and everything worked out perfectly.
I wish you all a sweet holiday season!
