  • Line a 9x9-inch pan with aluminum foil; set aside.
  • In a heavy bottomed saucepan, add eggnog and sugar, bring to a rolling boil over medium to med-high heat (watch that mixture does not boil over the pot, if boiling to hard, turn down heat slightly, but continue a rapid boil), stirring constantly; boil for 2 minutes (this must be timed for exactly 2 minutes).
