I made these extremely rich and sweet confections for a Christmas hand-out! So far they have been a huge success! This sweet confection has just a few ingredients and does NOT require a candy thermometer! My first time ever making fudge couldn't have been any easier and perfect! This is great for beginners and novices in the kitchen alike! If you love eggnog, you will have a hard time resisting these. The recipe calls for regular mini marshmallows but I used vanilla flavored mini marshmallows which added more flavor! Enjoy and Merry Christmas!

Ingredients

  • 1 c
    eggnog (not low-fat), high quality
  • 2 3/4 c
    sugar
  • 1 1/2 c
    mini marshmallows
  • 1/2 tsp
    cinnamon
  • 1 pinch
    nutmeg
  • 2 Tbsp
    butter
  • 6 oz
    white chocolate chips
  • 1 c
    almonds, chopped coarsely

How to Make Secret Eggnog Fudge

Step-by-Step

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
