5 from 1 review

This easy recipe for eggnog fudge is the perfect sweet treat for the holidays, and also makes a perfect last minute gift for that special someone.


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup eggnog
  • 10.5 ounces white chocolate bars, chopped into small pieces (I like Ghirardelli!)
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg, plus a little more for the top of the fudge
  • One 7 ounce jar marshmallow creme
  • 1 teaspoon rum extract


  1. Line an 8 or 9-inch square pan with nonstick foil, leaving some extra coming over the sides to make it easier to lift out.
  2. Put sugar, butter and eggnog in a large heavy pot over medium high heat and bring to a boil, stirring the whole time.
  3. Boil for 10 minutes over medium heat or until a candy thermometer reaches 234°F, stirring constantly.
  4. Move the pot to a cool burner and quickly stir in the chocolate until it is fully melted. Stir in the nutmeg followed by the marshmallow creme and rum extract.
  5. Stir it all together until it is well combined and then pour it into the foil-lined pan. Sprinkle a little more nutmeg on top and let it cool completely. (This is the hardest part.)
  6. Cut into squares and feel very merry!
