White Chocolate Eggnog Fudge Recipe

One of my favorite things about the holidays is all of the baking and giving that is involved. Honestly, I hated eggnog until my youngest boy became obsessed with it. Then I slowly started to like it! Last year, I baked some of my all-time favorite cookies that were also made with eggnog! Safe to say I’m a fan now. I feel like eggnog is amazing when you bake with it or incorporate it into a recipe. It’s so creamy and tastes almost like a custard!

My husband hates eggnog. But I always make him try my recipes. The eggnog cookies also became his favorite last Christmas. He made me bake them for all of the neighbors. Like the cookies, this fudge turned out amazing. And when I had my husband take a bite he said, WOW, this is actually really good! It is the perfect holiday fudge recipe. And being a lover of white chocolate, I of course LOVED this recipe! Eggnog fan or not, this eggnog fudge is a dessert that everyone can appreciate! It was easy to put together and I know that you will love it too!

What You’ll Need for Eggnog Fudge

Only 6 ingredients to make this tasty fudge! I love that I can pick these ingredients up without having to spend a fortune. Its simple ingredients make it perfect for making in large batches and giving to friends and family! If you’re looking for individual measurements, they’re in the recipe card below.

  • Eggnog: This is best made from scratch! It only takes a few simple ingredients and really amplifies the overall flavor of the eggnog fudge.
  • Sugar: Granulated sugar melts down to add the perfect sweetness to the fudge!
  • White Chocolate: I love white chocolate! It’s so rich and milky. It matches perfectly with the flavor of eggnog.
  • Butter: You can add salted or unsalted butter here. I like using salted to balance the sweetness of the fudge a little.
  • Marshmallow Cream: Adds a tasty, fluffy texture and sweet flavor.
  • Nutmeg: You’ve gotta have a little spice for the holidays! The warm, nutty flavor tastes great dusted on top.

Time to Make Fudge!

Eggnog fudge is one of the easiest desserts to make. Fudge, in general, is super simple and tastes so amazing! All you have to do is mix, melt, and cool! You’ll have to try my vanilla and peanut butter fudge recipes. They’re easy and delicious, too!

  1. Prep Your Pan: To begin, line a 9×13 inch pan with aluminum foil and lightly sprinkle with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Boil Eggnog and Sugar: In a large pot over medium heat, combine eggnog and sugar. Bring to a boil stirring occasionally. Once it comes to a boil, stir constantly for 10 minutes.
  3. Mix in Remaining Ingredients: Remove from the heat and add in white chocolate chips, marshmallow cream, and butter. Stir until completely melted and incorporated.
  4. Pour and Cool: Pour into your foil lined 9×13 pan and spread evenly until smooth. Sprinkle the top with nutmeg. Let completely cool to room temperature and store in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

Tips for Making Fudge

Fudge is pretty easy, but needs certain conditions to have the best consistency! Here are a few tips and tricks on making the tastiest fudge possible. You’ll be a pro!

  • Only Use Butter: It’s best to only use butter when making fudge. A substitute like margarine has too high of a water content and will keep your fudge from setting properly.
  • Check Temperature With a Candy Thermometer: You’ll know your fudge mixture is ready to be poured into a pan when it reaches at least 234 degrees Fahrenheit. You can also test the mixture by putting a drop into cold water. If it turns into a hard ball, it’s ready!
  • Adding Nuts: This eggnog fudge is perfect for adding chopped walnuts, pecans, or almonds to!

Storing Leftover Eggnog Fudge

If this creamy fudge ends up having leftovers, here’s how to keep it fresh! It’s the perfect treat to enjoy days after it’s made.

  • In the Refrigerator: Keep your fudge wrapped tightly in plastic wrap or tin foil. You can also store it in an airtight container. It will stay good for up to 1 week.
  • In the Freezer: Eggnog fudge will keep in the freezer for up to 3 months. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap or put in an airtight container before storing.

    Just made this fudge today. Hope the eggnog flavor comes out a little more when it’s completely set because, although it smells like eggnog, I can only really taste the white chocolate. It’s good fudge, just the lack of eggnog flavor is really disappointing. (I used fresh quality ingredients and followed the recipe to a T.)

  2. Hi!!! I am so excited to try this fudge right now! I was curious if you know how long I can store it for? And should it be stored in the fridge?

  3. I love homemade fudge and yours looks and sounds perfect for the holidays! We don’t really drink that much eggnog but I do enjoy baking with it so thanks for sharing another way to use up the rest of our eggnog Alyssa:)

  4. Are you kidding me? Is someone trying to pull something over on the ole dogcatcher…or are these the best “doggone” (wink) cookies I ever chomped down on. I gave a couple to my pups and they went wild – one of ’em got so excited he had a wee wee in the kennel! Man those eggnog meltaway sliders were hum-dog delicious! Keep ’em coming Alyssa!
