Eggnog Fudge

What says "Happy Holidays" more than eggnog? Well for those of us who cant drink enough eggnog, comes eggnog fudge... because if we cant drink it we certainly must eat it! While it is certainly more difficult than some of the other fudges that I've posted its definitely worth it.

Eggnog Fudge

1 cup Eggnog (dairy based, don't use soy nog, it changes the taste)
3 cups white sugar
1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg, plus some for garnish
1/8 cup butter, chilled (half a stick)
1- 12 oz package white chocolate chips
1 cup slivered almonds (optional)

  1. Line a 9x13 pan with parchment paper leaving 1 inch above lip on all sides.
  2. Heat eggnog and sugar over medium heat in a heavy sauce pan. Bring mixture to a rolling boil, while stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, boil for 2 minutes.
  3. Fold in marshmallows and nutmeg; return to a boil and boil for 6 minutes stirring constantly until candy thermometer reaches 234*f.
  4. Remove from heat and quickly stir in butter, white chocolate chips and almonds, if desired. Stir well until mixture is mixed and glossy.  Quickly pour into prepared pan and sprinkle nutmeg over top for garnish.
  5. Cool for 2 hours or until firm.  Once fudge is firm lift fudge from pan and cut into squares.
