Tis the season, for baking! Annual goodies like fudge make wonderful gifts for anyone, and I usually make a couple of batches of eggnog fudge for those special on my list because it's not the usual chocolate fudge and dressed up with crushed peppermints make it even more festive!
3 c. sugar
1 c. eggnog
1 1/2 c. mini marshmallows
1/2 t. cinnamon, nutmeg
2 Tbsp. butter
6 oz. white chocolate chips
1 c. slivered almonds
Combine sugar and eggnog in a large saucepan. Bring to a rolling boil over med. heat, stirring constantly. Boil for 2 min. Fold in marshmallows, cinnamon and nutmeg. Bring back to a rolling boil, cook for 6 min., stirring. Remove from heat and stir in butter, chocolate chips and almonds. Stir until well mixed. Pour into a greased aluminum foil lined 9x9 baking pan. Cool completely at room temperature. Turn out of pan, peel off foil and cut into squares. Makes about 5 dozen.
Now, if I can only come up with a gingerbread fudge, I'd be delighted! Sweet treats is a plus to the Christmas season so if you like eggnog, treat someone special to this fudge, and yourself! This fudge recipe was featured in the Gooseberry Patch Christmas in the Country cookbook, so look me up!
