Ho! Ho! Ho! Eggnog Fudge!

As the Christmas Holiday rapidly approaches, it’s time to get into the kitchen and make some Christmas memories. I have been making fudge for Christmas presents for years, but this time, I wanted to do something a little different. Spane really likes Eggnog, and I do, too. We were invited to a potluck Christmas party at Entrepreneurs and Professions, and I decided to make Jambalaya, Hot Dogs with Bacon appetizers, and wow everyone with the Eggnog Fudge.

 

Mise En Place

 

Ho! Ho! Ho! Eggnog Fudge
Author: 
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 12 servings
 
A perfect treat for the Holiday season.
Ingredients
  • 3 cups Sugar
  • 1 7-oz jar marshmallow creme
  • 1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 6 tablespoons Butter
  • 1 12-oz package good quality white chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon brandy flavoring
  • Dried cranberries for garnish (optional)
Instructions
  1. Line a 9x9 inch pan with parchment paper, large enough that it hangs over the sides.
  2. Mix the sugar, sweetened condensed milk, and butter together and cook until mixture comes to a boil, stirring frequently.
  3. Boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Make sure to stir all the way to the bottom to avoid hot spots and burning.
  4. Remove from heat and add the nutmeg and brandy flavoring. Stir in white chocolate chips and marshmallow creme.
  5. Stir ingredients until mixture is creamy and smooth. (An electric mixer may be used).
  6. Pour into the pan and cool until room temperature. Put in the refrigerator until completely set.
  7. Remove the parchment paper with fudge from the pan.
  8. Cut the fudge into squares. Top each one with a dried cranberry. Push the cranberry down a little so it will still to the fudge.
  9. Return to the refrigerator, then remove about 1 hour before serving time.
Notes
Quick notes
I suggest using flavoring instead of real liquor because the flavoring is more intense. Liquor, because of the temperature of the hot candy, could also cause a flare-up.
