Merry Christmas Eve. I hope you are all spending time with your family or friends tonight. One tradition we started when we lived in Missouri was to make fudge on Christmas Eve.
You know the movie, How the Grinch Stole Christmas? Remember the scene on Christmas Eve where they pick a holiday cheermiester?
Well I always envied the Grinch when everyone was feeding him, their holiday fudge. Who wouldn’t want to sit in a holiday chair, and sample all these award winning fudge recipes?
Maybe it’s just a holiday fantasy I have, but doesn’t it sound like a dream? Can I be the holiday cheermiester this year?
But even if i’m not, this year we will be making eggnog fudge and drinking our eggnog along with it. Merry Christmas everyone.
This Egg Nog Fudge is about to make all your holiday dreams come true.
can i use non dairy egg nog for this recipe?
We have never made this recipe using non-dairy egg nog, however, I feel like if you did, it wouldn’t set up as well.
We wouldn’t recommend making it with non-dairy egg nog, but if you do, I would recommend letting it boil for 12-13 minutes, so it thickens up a little better.
I would also refrigerate it for 30 minutes longer than the recipe directions calls for.
how do you make your own egg nog?
I have personally never made my own egg nog, because time is money, however, I do have a recipe I have tasted and it was delicious.
Here is the recipe to make 6 cups of egg nog:
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 1/2 cups milk whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon nutmeg for garnish
Separate the eggs. Separate the yolks in a medium sized bowl and the egg whites in a large size bowl. Cover the whites and refrigerate until they are needed later on.
Whisk the yolks and the sugar together. Add the sugar to the yolk mixture and whisk until smooth. It should be a light yellow color, and very creamy.
Add the milk and cream. Add the milk and cream and whisk until well combined
Cover and refrigerate. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
Remove egg whites from fridge and whisk them in. Right before serving, whisk the refrigerated egg whites with a hand mixer at high speed until the whites form stiff peaks.
Add the egg whites into the eggnog mixture. Add the beaten egg whites that are fluffy and whipped, to the eggnog and fold or stir the whites into it.
This will give the eggnog a super creamy texture. It’s okay if some of the egg whites float, this is normal.
Serve the egg nog immediately, or within 24 hours.
