You won’t be able to resist this incredible recipe for Eggnog Fudge. This rich and creamy fudge has the perfect balance of spice, sweetness and smoothness.
This recipe for Eggnog Fudge comes from one of my favourite bloggers Recipe Girl. I had a few of my own adaptations like using a fresh vanilla bean and just a pinch of ground cloves. I am a firm believer, if you are going to indulge your sweet tooth, make sure you do so with fine quality ingredients. Using fine quality chocolate will definitely elevate the flavour of your fudge. The top of the fudge was sprinkled with a Holiday Spice Infused sugar I had bought a gourmet food store, but you can also use a bit of nutmeg.
Fudge is a terrific Holiday treat that also makes a great gift. Make a few batches to keep on hand as this fudge freezes great. Eggnog Fudge so tasty and this recipe will make you wish they sold eggnog year round.
