Who doesn’t love FUDGE?? There are SO MANY kinds, I have multiple recipes myself, right here on my blog.  The others all all chocolate — dark chocolate, milk chocolate, full of nuts or candy — this eggnog fudge?  This fudge here is different.

The texture alone will have you falling in love.  So smooth and creamy.  But if you are like us, and you love eggnog – –  you will need to make this recipe STAT.

This recipe isn’t new to my blog.  I actually blogged this fudge recipe for the first time back in 2013.  I got it from one of the first bloggers I had ever “met” when I started,  Joan,  from Chocolate, Chocolate and More.

This white chocolate eggnog fudge has always done crazy well at Christmastime for me, but the photos were not great, and I decided this year it would get a recipe revamp!


Have you ever made your own eggnog? Typically, I have always purchased mine at the store, but this year, after reading so much about homemade, I will definitely be trying to make it from scratch!

  1. This eggnog fudge is a great addition to a holiday dessert try. I made these last year and plan on giving them to neighbors this season! Easy and delicious recipe!

    1. hi, Charyl. I wouldn’t recommend it. You need to the candy thermometer to tell you when it gets to the right temperature and stage. You don’t need one that is super expensive, but you should have one. I hope that doesn’t hinder you trying the recipe!

  2. I made this recently. Making it again for a church bake sale. It turned out great! Got great reviews! I am, however, baffled by the 3/4 of a cup of egg nog minus two tablespoons, although I did follow it! I’m just curious how you arrived at that measurement!

    1. Madeleine, I wish it were a more clever story, but this recipe came from a friend, and I just make it how she did. I figured, if it worked, I would roll with it! 🙂

    1. I have never tried it? Sometimes chocolate can get pretty fickle when you add things to it? Unless you truly want alcohol, you could try incorporating the spices used in spiced rum? In addition to the cinnamon, there are cloves, allspice, ginger and star anise. You could ramp up the “spice” factor that way? Or try replacing the vanilla extract with a good quality rum extract?

  3. Have you ever tried this with dark chocolate and marshmallows rather than marshmallow cream. I have a recipe for “healthier” marshmallows and trying to use it some place.
