Wondering what to do with that leftover eggnog? Try our decadent eggnog fudge. It’s a smooth and creamy dessert everyone with love! I love when eggnog makes an appearance in desserts and baked goods. This fudge is no exception. With eggnog as the star of this fudge, it makes this holiday fudge come to life with each and every bite. The spices and creaminess are so enjoyable. This fudge is truly a must make!
For soft-set fudge, let it set on your counter-top at room temperature for 4-6 hours. However, for firm fudge, let it set in your fridge for the same amount of time.
The extra nutmeg garnish is optional. With that being said, it will add a touch of flavor to the outside of the candy. Now, if you’re not a fan of nutmeg, leave it off.
Using a candy thermometer is not optional. If you don’t have one, then I recommend you purchase one before starting this recipe.
