Fudge Friday! – Lazy Lady Eggnog Fudge Recipe

Hello All!  Who’s excited for this Eggnog Fudge Recipe!?

 

Quick update on my life – new location, sort of.  We’re back in VA.  New JOB! woohoo.  I am already a bajillion times happier.  The only bad thing about my new job is that one of the girls in the office owns a bakery on the side.  She’s a professional baker, and I am not.  I am a wreck who gets flour everywhere every time I bake anything.

 

So, I am totally jealous  inspired by her, but am currently way too intimidated to actually bring anything I bake into the office.  Maybe one day… when she’s on vacation.*

 

*Full disclosure, she’s adorable, and sweet, and an amazing baker.  All snark is solely for the purpose of humor, and that makes her all the more annoyingly perfect.

 

I think I did a lazy lady eggnog themed recipe a few years ago too, because I am a hot mess.  I’ve earned that title with years of practice.  As a matter of fact, I am such a mess, I don’t even have pictures for this fudge despite having made it.  Why?  Because I made it last night, despite knowing I wanted to post a Fudge Friday post and despite knowing this particular type of fudge takes longer to set.*

*see above statement attesting hot messedness.

 

But, I need to share this recipe with you.  It’s the easiest way to get fudge perfection on the planet, so you must be made aware.

 

The general premise is to melt a bag of chocolate (or flavored) chips with one can of sweetened condensed milk, and 1 teaspoon of extract until you make magic.

INGREDIENTS

1 bag white chocolate baking chips

1 can sweetened condensed milk

1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon brandy flavoring*

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg (divided)

*if you want to use real brandy, I recommend upping this to a tablespoon to get the full impact.  This is not enough booze to get anyone drunk, especially when spread through all of the fudge, so have at it!

 

Put the chips, milk, extracts, and 1/4 teaspoon of the nutmeg in a pot and cook on medium, stirring continuously, until the chips have melted.

 

Pour into a greased 8×8 pan and put it in the fridge for at least 48 hours.  Unlike standard fudge, this stuff takes longer to set, but the ease of preparation for guaranteed smooth and delicious fudge makes it worth all the waiting.

And yes, to answer your question, you can change any of the flavors listed here to get different kinds of fudge.  But, then you take away all my recipe ideas and I have nothing to do, and you’ve ruined my life.  Ruined.  Stay tuned for the break downs.

 

I’ve attached a printable/downloadable PDF if you want one.  But, this is super easy, so you probably don’t even need it:
