So this was my test batch for a delight eggnog fudge that incorporates eggnog, white chocolate and marshmallow creme. The fudge was pretty easy to make, I think from start to finish it took about 15 minutes. The fudge had a great eggnog flavor and consistency. My co-workers thought it was delicious and tasted just like eggnog, though they requested a little more rum added next time ;) The next batch will be added to my DIY tab since this test batch was a success.
1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup eggnog
11 oz bag of white chocolate chips
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
7 oz jar of marshmallow creme
1 teaspoon rum or rum extract
- Line a 8x8 or 9x9 square pan with foil and let some extra hang over the side. Butter the foil or use pam.
- in a 3-quart saucepan combine sugar, butter and eggnog on high heat. Bring to a rolling boil, stir the mixture constantly. Continue boiling 8-10 minutes over high heat or until candy thermometer reaches 234 F.
- Using a wooden spoon, work quickly to stir in the white chocolate chips and nutmeg until chocolate is melted and smooth. Stir in marshmallow creme and rum. Beat until well blended and than pour into prepared pan. Sprinkle a little ground nutmeg on top. Let stand at room temp until cooled or place in the refrigerator for 2 hours to speed up the process.
- When completely cooled, cut into squares and store in an air tight container.
