"This is an old favorite of my mothers. She made it every Christmas time. So it holds good memories for me. Besides, it's out of this world."

"People would not quit hounding me for this. I made it for Christmas gifts with a few other kinds & this was all they'd talk about. They were threatening to steal it out of each other's mail boxes at work. I used white chips for the chocolate & vanilla instead of rum. Thanks for the winner recipe :)"
"I made three differant types of fudge this year from my Christmas Tray and this was really good. I've always had trouble getting the right consistancy for fudge and these directions made it really easy. I used a candy thermometer to measure the boiling time and it came out creamy and smooth. I did chill for about 2 hours to make sure it would cut and it was great. A differant taste from regular fudge and a nice treat. Thanks for posting."
"I've made this twice now. The first time with the ingredients listed here (no nuts) and the second time I used Cinnamon eggnog, ground cinnamon instead of nutmeg, and vanilla instead of rum. Both times it turned out perfect and unbelievably delicious. This is a great recipe!!!!!"
"This came out perfect. I followed the recipe exactly, except I backed off the rum extract to 1/4 tsp. as I don't like rum flavor in my egg nog. I also didn't have a candy thermometer so I boiled for 10 minutes and it came out perfect. Thanks for sharing. I will make it again."
"I made this as one of three fudges for my Christmas baskets, and I know people are just going to love it! I have never heard of, made, or eaten eggnog fudge before. I am not a huge eggnog fan, but this tastes just like a vanilla milkshake (I think)! I have to admit, I did change a few things though: In place of the nutmeg in the fudge, I used cinnamon, and I sprinkled a little allspice on top of the fudge after it had cooled a little bit. I also used vanilla extract in place of rum extract. I also used a (12 oz.) bag of white chocolate chips instead of bar chocolate, and I omitted the nuts - I'm SORRY! Here, have some fudge. :) I boiled my mixture for 10 minutes, and I used a 9x12 pan, since I wanted to make a lot. The consistency was out of this world, perfect! I plan on trying it with maybe brandy extract..? My husband wants me to put nutmeg in it next time, and he doesn't even care for fudge OR white chocolate (but he loves eggnog). So, yeah, this one's a keeper. This is permanently on my holiday baking list. Thank you!"
"These definitely taste like eggnog but like others commented, it is pretty rich. I omitted the pecans. Maybe putting these in would have balance out the sweetness a bit."
"Okay, but I don't care for eggnog."
"So good and i think i even overcooked the chocolate. But very good. Some people couldn't tell there was eggnog in it, but i could for sure. So good. Good thing i only made half a batch."
"Lovely fudge and so easy! Used Horizon lowfat organic eggnog, my favorite, and a bag of white chocolate chips. Great combination of white chocolate and eggnog flavors. Thanks for sharing the recipe!"
"This was pretty good, the consistency was perfect. It was extremely rich however and you have to be in the mood for it!"
"If you are looking for eggnog in fudge form- this is the recipe for you! It is soo rich and creamy, I couldn't believe how great this turned out."
"SO good. Mine turned out perfect the first time. I didn't have any fluff, so I used 2 1/4 C mini marshmallows, and 2 tsp. light corn syrup melted together insted. SO SO good...just try it!"
"This is a keeper!! I used white almond bark instead of milk chocolate. I should never have made it! I can't keep my hands out of it! I didn't have any rum extract so I used vanilla rum instead. Next time I will leave out the pecans. It was very easy to make. The only problem I had (besides making a pig out of myself with it) is that it stuck like heck to my pan. I thought I had buttered the pan enough, but I guess not."
"Yummy!! Made just as directed...wouldn't change a thing!"
"You have a WONDERFUL recipe here....I put it on 2 different goodie trays and so many people now want the recipe. It is so creamy and sooo good. Thank you so much for such a great recipe. It is definitely going into my Christmas regular list."
"I made about 20 pounds of this stuff last year. I followed the recipe and used the listed ingredients. It was unbelievably easy to make.... and soooooo freaking good!! I am going to make it this year for gifts."
"This was my first time making fudge and this recipe made me look like an old pro. I made this for our Christmas Eve party and was it a hit. Everyone loved it and commented on how creamy it was as well as the unique flavor. I too used a bag of white chocolate chips and vanilla as that is what I had on hand. Thanks for a great recipe!"
"Absolutely delicious! I wasn't sure how 3/4 cup eggnog could actually make an entire pan of fudge taste like eggnog but it DID! I took another reviewers advice and used a bag of white chocolate chips and vanilla instead of rum! I highly recommend this recipe."
"You can really taste the eggnog. Everyone loved it!"
"This came out soooooo good! I handed it out for Christmas this year and everyone asked me for the recipe! I followed the recipe, only I sprinkled cinnamon on top to make them look pretty. : ) YUMMMMM!!!!"
