Eggnog Fudge-Smooth and creamy. A subtle eggnog flavor but not overwhelming, the perfect Christmas Fudge.
I adore Eggnog. Creamy, thick, that eggy, sweet flavor. I just can’t get enough of it. As soon as I see it on the shelves, I start stocking up. I have no idea why grocery stores and really, dairies, torture me all year long. Only selling it for about 4 weeks out of the year. Usually it shows up the week before Thanksgiving, and then about the second week of December is the last shipment shipped to stores.
And 2 of the kids love it as much as I do. I have to fight for every drop. Is it wrong of me to say I’m glad the hubby and the picky eater don’t like it? And why can’t you buy it by the gallon? My local grocery store only sells quarts. Common, really? I can’t walk into the house with just a few quarts of this heavenly nectar. I’f I go to the “big” store I can get a half gallon. I’m still buying 3 at a time.
Don’t think this is a lot. Remember, it’s only half gallon jugs. When I buy milk, I buy 3 GALLONS at a time. If we have fresh, still warm out of the oven cookies, you can see close to a gallon disappear at that one sitting. There are 5 of us after all.
And I know I can make my own eggnog but I haven’t found a recipe I like yet.
So, since it’s eggnog season, and I can get my hands on it for the next few weeks, I’m taking full advantage.
I’ve got a few treats you can make with eggnog and I’ll share them all but I wanted to start with this fudge.

Crap, now she likes eggnog too.
