FAQ & TIPS For this eggnog fudge-
Do I need a candy thermometer?
This easy eggnog fudge turns out best if you have a candy thermometer. Candy thermometers are designed to monitor the temperature of homemade candy so that you don’t overcook the sugar and they are the best way to measure the temperature as you make this homemade fudge recipe. However if you don’t have one you can still make this fudge. If you have an instant read thermometer (the kind for meat) and it can go high enough you can use it to measure the temperature as your fudge cooks. Or if you don’t have any thermometer you can water test and cook your mixture to the soft ball stage. For more information on how to do that check out this post for all the details and instructions.
Can I use homemade eggnog?
I’ve only tested this recipe with store-bought eggnog so I can’t say for sure if homemade will work. However if you want to use your own eggnog you can try! As long as it is a classic real eggnog recipe and not low fat, sugar free, or made with any dairy alternative it should work beautifully!
I like alcohol in my eggnog can I add it to this fudge?
If you like the flavor of spiked eggnog there is an easy way to add that flavor to this fudge. Just add a teaspoon of rum extract to add the flavor of rum without adding too much liquid to your fudge!
