How to Make Secret Eggnog Fudge
- Line a 9x9 pan with aluminum foil; set aside. In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine eggnog and sugar; stirring constantly, bring to a rolling boil over medium to medium-high heat. Boil for exactly 2 minutes. Watch that the mixture does not boil over the pot; if it's boiling too hard, turn down the heat slightly, but continue a rapid boil.
- Remove from heat. Stir in the marshmallows, cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg until marshmallows have melted and are well combined. Return to saucepan to heat; bring back to a rolling boil for 6 minutes, stirring constantly. Again, turn down the heat if the mixture threatens to boil over. The mixture will start to turn a brown color, which is normal.
- After boiling for the full 6 minutes, remove from heat. Add the butter, white chocolate chips and almonds. Beat until the mixture has a glossy appearance and the chips and butter are mixed in well.
- Pour the mixture into the prepared foil-lined pan. Cool to room temperature. Remove from pan, using sides of foil as handles. Peel the foil away from the fudge and cut into small squares. Makes 15 servings.
