I’m thinking Y.E.S.
One of the many things that’s great about being married is all the amazing family recipes you get access to. 😉 Grandma’s Fluffy Sugar Cookies and Easy Chocolate Fudge are just two of the many tasty recipes Trevor’s introduced me to.
Like clockwork, as December came rolling around, so did my craving for all things holiday treats and sweets. More specifically? Eggnog and fudge.
There’s just something about sipping on eggnog while watching a Christmas movie that just makes me so darn happy. Who’s with me? 🙋
I had some leftover eggnog hanging out in the fridge when my craving for fudge struck.
So I thought what the heck? I’ll use eggnog instead of milk and make some fudge.
H.O.L.Y. Y.UM. you guys.
The eggnog makes my already fudge-y fudge, extra fudge-y and rich. I also added some cinnamon and nutmeg to really bring out those amazing eggnog spices and I swapped vanilla for bourbon.
I also doubled the original recipe, so this holiday chocolate fudge is ultra thick.
Literally. I’m drooling right now just thinking about it.
