I made this for Christmas. It's very rich and yummy! Source: "Braum's Holiday Recipes (2001)"
- 1 cup eggnog
- 3 cups sugar
- 1 1⁄2 cups miniature marshmallows
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1⁄8 cup butter or 1⁄8 cup margarine, chilled
- 6 ounces butterscotch chips
- 1 cup chopped almonds (optional)
- butter-flavored cooking spray
- Line a 9 inch square pan with aluminum foil and set aside.
- Spray sides of a large saucepan with butter flavored nonstick cooking spray.
- Bring egg nog and sugar to a rolling boil at medium heat stirring constantly with a wooden spoon.
- Let boil for two minutes exactly with heat turned down to the lowest setting that will maintain the boil.
- Stir occasionally to keep the mixture from boiling over or burning.
- Fold in marshmallows, cinnamon and nutmeg; the boil will probably stop until the marshmallows completely dissolve.
- Bring mixture back to a rolling boil for another 6 full minutes (start timing when the boil resumes).
- Stir constantly.
- The mixture will start to turn brown during the boil.
- If you get brown flakes in the mixture, reduce heat a little.
- Remove from heat and add butter, chips and nuts.
- Stir until thoroughly mixed or until fudge starts to lose its glossy appearance.
- Pour into prepared pan.
- Sprinkle with nutmeg.
- Cool at room temperature.
- Remove from pan, remove foil and cut into 1 inch squares.
- Store in an airtight container.
Great flavour! Very easy to make. More of a hard fudge than a soft, creamy fudge.
this sounds very yummy as i love eggnog.finally an eggnog rcipe without any alcohol in it.im defently gonna give it a try.i'll rate it after i make it lol.
Very good fudge. Tastes just like eggnog. I used white chocolate chips instead of butterscotch. I also added some yellow food coloring, just to identify, added 1 cup cherries for the almonds.
