White Chocolate Eggnog Fudge

What would Christmas be without some delicious eggnog or…this White Chocolate Eggnog Fudge?


Hi friends. I hope you’re doing fine. So do I even though it’s been outrageously cold (even for me although I tolerate cold better than most of the people).

Also, I’ve got a new addiction. I’m having a kick on making fudge over and over. Since I made that Gingerbread White Chocolate Fudge and this White Chocolate Eggnog Fudge I might or might not have made few other versions.

The most surprising thing is that I haven’t tried lavender fudge yet. Is there something wrong with me?

Honestly, I was worrying this fudge won’t set because of real eggnog. Some recipes I saw suggested making eggnog fudge without…actually adding any eggnog (only nutmeg), but I didn’t like those. It’s like eating a coffee cake (Hello, David) which doesn’t have any coffee.

White Chocolate Eggnog Fudge

Thus, I decided to risk and stirred in real eggnog! Some recipes also suggested infusing fudge with just a little (like 1/4 cup) of eggnog. But I was a rebel and thought I’d rather use more chocolate to be able to add a little more eggnog. That was still a risky thing to do, but White Chocolate Eggnog Fudge turned out awesome!

It’s very creamy and has a melt-in-your-mouth texture (Please keep it refrigerated!) The most importantly, it tastes like eggnog. Certainly, it has a very delicate, subtle, flavor, but you’ll definitely feel the well-pronounced nutmeg flavor and eggnog in the background. Hint: if you savor fudge for 2-3 seconds, the flavor will become more distinctive.

I also wanted to incorporate some rum, but I needed to sacrifice as I didn’t want to reduce the amount of eggnog.

So if you cannot imagine Christmas without eggnog, don’t forget to buy…and then use some for this luscious White Chocolate Eggnog Fudge!

  1. Ben, this fudge looks so good. I love that eggnog is in it – I’ve never thought of that, and I always am looking for a fudge recipe that’s different from the ordinary milk chocolate. Thnaks for the recipe!

  2. I still have a bit of eggnog leftover from my pie and I’ve been wondering what to do with it. This fudge would be perfect! I can’t believe anyone would make eggnog fudge without adding eggnog. That’s just crazy! It should just be called nutmeg fudge and I certainly wouldn’t want to eat nutmeg fudge. Have a great weekend, Ben!

  3. What a fun holiday recipe, Ben! I haven’t broken into the eggnog yet, although I’m thinking I might have to pick up some at the store this weekend. I try to hold out as long as I can…but I know I won’t be able to hold out on this fudge. And well done by actually including eggnog in it! (For the record, I did create a cappuccino coffee cake one time that actually has coffee in it!) I’m thinking Santa will love having a batch of this fudge next to the fireplace…you know, to wash down the cookies and all. Haha! Well done, my friend!
