Creamy Cranberry Eggnog Fudge
This creamy cranberry eggnog fudge recipe combines the flavors of the season into one scrumptious dessert. Perfect for cookie exchanges, treat trays, and gift giving. Quick and easy to make!
- 8 oz Baker's white chocolate (2 packages)
- 1/3 cup eggnog
- 6 tbsp butter
- 1 tsp rum extract (optional)
- 3.4 oz instant vanilla pudding (1 package)
- 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries
Line an 8 inch square baking pan with foil, making sure to let the foil extend over the edges.
Microwave the chocolate, eggnog, and butter on high for about 2 minutes, until the butter is melted. The chocolate will be nearly melted.
Remove from the microwave and stir thoroughly until the chocolate is completely melted.
Whisk in pudding mix, rum extract, and ground nutmeg until well blended and smooth, about 2 minutes.
Stir in the powdered sugar a bit at a time (about 1/2 cup each time) until blended.
Add in cranberries and mix until incorporated relatively evenly.
Press fudge mixture into pan.
Chill in refrigerator for 2 hours.
Use extended foil to help you lift the fudge from the pan. Cut into pieces and serve!
