Your favorite holiday drink — creamy with strong notes of cinnamon and nutmeg — is now contained in a sweet dessert offering that is perfect for your holiday dessert table (or any time during the year you find yourself with an eggnog craving).

Ingredients

  • 2  Cups  sugar
  • 3/4  Cups  butter
  • 2/3  Cups  eggnog
  • 2  Teaspoons  nutmeg
  • 1 1/2  Teaspoon  cinnamon
  • 12  Ounces  white chocolate morsels
  • 6  Ounces  marshmallow cream
  • 1  Teaspoon  vanilla extract
  • 2  Tablespoons  spiced rum (optional)

Directions

Butter an 8-inch square pan, and set aside.

Bring the sugar, butter, and eggnog to a boil in a medium sauce pan over high heat.

Cook for 8 to 10 minutes, or until a candy thermometer registers 234 degrees F (soft ball stage). Stir to prevent scorching.

Remove the pan from the heat, stir in the white chocolate and spices. Stir until smooth. Then, add the marshmallow cream, vanilla extract, and rum. Mix well.

Pour the fudge into the prepared pan. Allow to cool, and set. Finally, cut and serve!

Eggnog Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Eggnog Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
