Eggnog Fudge

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.

Instructions

  • Prepare the mise en place
    Mise en place
  • Line an 8x8 inch pan with parchment paper, large enough that it hangs over the sides.
  • Put a large saucepan on the stove. Mix the sugar, sweetened condensed milk, and butter together and cook until mixture comes to a boil, stirring frequently.
  • Boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Make sure to stir all the way to the bottom to avoid hot spots and burning.
  • Remove from heat and add the nutmeg and brandy flavoring. Stir in white chocolate chips and marshmallow creme.
  • Stir ingredients until the mixture is creamy and smooth. (An electric mixer may be used).
  • Pour into the pan and cool until room temperature. Put in the refrigerator until completely set.
  • Remove the parchment paper with fudge from the pan.
  • 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.
  • Return to the refrigerator, then remove about 1 hour before serving time.

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.
