Today is day 12 in our 12 Days of Christmas event and to wrap up this event, we are sharing this amazing recipe for White Chocolate Eggnog Fudge!
This recipe almost made me pull out all of my hair, but after what seemed like 100 re-tests, and tests of the re-tests, this white chocolate eggnog fudge is finally ready to share with the world!
I wanted to make this recipe simple. As in no candy thermometer and minimal ingredients, but still taste like the real thing. That is exactly this recipe! It is easy, super simple, and only requires 7 ingredients!
You don’t need any special gizmos or gadgets to make this fudge, just a regular old saucepan, a spatula, and a baking dish!
Making the Fudge
First things first, you are going to need to line a 9” x 9” square baking dish with two layers of aluminum foil. Make sure that there are no holes in the foil and that it is fitted perfectly into the dish.
Brush the aluminum foil with 1 teaspoon of melted butter or spray the foil with a non-stick spray.
Grab a medium sized saucepan and combine the granulated sugar, eggnog, melted butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Give it a quick stir to combine the ingredients.
Place the saucepan over medium heat and bring fudge mixture to a boil. DO NOT STIR THE FUDGE.
As soon as you start to see the fudge start to bubble around the edges set a timer for 6 minutes and let the fudge mixture boil, again don’t stir the fudge during this time.
The fudge will boil vigorously during the cooking time, it shouldn’t boil over, just keep an eye on it, but make sure to not stir it!
When the timer is up, remove the fudge from the heat. Add in the white chocolate and stir to fully melt and combine the chocolate.
If you are using the chopped walnuts, stir in the chopped walnuts, and transfer to a mixing bowl.
This is an important step
Using a spatula or wooden spoon, stir the fudge mixture in the mixing bowl for 5 minutes. Doing this incorporates extra air into the fudge mixture and is the key to the fudge setting properly.
Pour the fudge into the prepared pan and the fudge let set in the refrigerator for at least 4-6 hours, but preferably overnight.
When the fudge has fully set, use the foil as handles to remove it from the pan to a cutting board. Chop the fudge up into squares and serve.
There you have it, a super easy and simple recipe for white chocolate eggnog fudge that is OUT OF THIS WORLD delicious!
