Back in the day, my mom's neighbor used to send over a plate of Fantasy Fudge every Christmas, complete with the recipe card attached. It was super sweet, and even a little piece of this fudge went a long way!
Personally, I'm not a huge fan of super sweet treats. Don't get me wrong, I love chocolate and all, but I don't really like anything too sweet -- know what I mean? Usually, the kids and I make one-bowl Easy Chocolate Peppermint Fudge for Christmas, but, I found the Fantasy Fudge recipe when I was sifting through my mom's old recipe collection, and I decided to use the base recipe to make eggnog fudge.
We're huge eggnog lovers in my house, and we usually try to make a new recipe using eggnog every year. The kids have been begging me to try making eggnog fudge, so guess what? Yep, that's eggnog recipe we're going with this year!
Our first try was a complete disaster. I actually threw the whole pan out, and that's something that almost never happens! I can usually always salvage a bad recipe and make it edible, but not this time.
So, we ended up subbing white chocolate for milk chocolate and eggnog for the evaporated milk in the original fudge recipe. We also added a little bit of nutmeg. The result is a sweet, creamy fudge that's perfect for Christmas!
The eggnog flavor isn't super strong. It's a little more subtle, but you can definitely taste it.So even if you're not a huge fan of eggnog, you'll probably like this fudge.
This is an easy fudge recipe, and you don't need a candy thermometer or any special equipment to make it. But I do have some tips for making eggnog fudge!
- Use foil and non-stick spray so that the fudge doesn't stick to the pan
- Stir continuously to prevent the mixture from scorching
- Boil for exactly 5 minutes
- Allow to cool completely before slicing
