This is quite good and different! After reading the reviews i made some alterations. I only used 2 cups of sugar instead of 3 because everyone was saying how sweet it was. Also, i added an extra half cup of eggnog, as everyone was saying it was too crumbly and dry. I cut it before it was fully finished hardening up to prevent any breakage as well. My boyfriend loved it and ate quite a few pieces. It is still super sweet even with only 2 cups of sugar. I might try 1 1/2 cups next time. Tip: Make sure you put it in a 9x9 pan because it was way too thin in a 9x13. Read More

Turned out hard and crumbly. Should use a candy thermometer to cook to the correct stage. Boiling for 6 minutes was much too long. Read More

This fudge is amazing! I normally don't like fudge but this one is so so good. I was a bit more liberal with cinnamon and nutmeg than the recipe indicated and I skipped lining the pan with foil and just sprayed it with Pam. Excellent and so easy! Read More

I don't know what happened to this fudge but it was a complete disaster. I followed the directions to the letter and it only came out as a dry crumbly mess the texture of granola. Couldn't even bother spreading it in the pan. It didn't burn so I don't know what happened. I did half the recipe but that should not have made a difference. Hope others have better luck. Read More

Like several others here my first attempt with this recipe was a disaster - the fudge was so grainy and hard I could hardly get it out of the saucepan. I was very disappointed. I searched the net and found some other versions of this recipe and several stressed the importance of using regular not low-fat eggnog - so I think that was my critical error. I tried it again with regular eggnog and a few other modifications I saw in other comments: 2 c. sugar only 5 minutes on the second boil 1/2 t. rum extract and I used an 8 x 8 pan. It turned out perfect this time and I can't wait to serve it on Christmas Day! Read More

I love eggnog & I loved the flavor of this fudge! It was great for Christmas-- I had more than 1 person tell me it was their favorite selection from my cookie plate. But it did turn out a little grainy & too soft... although the recipe does not call for a candy thermometer I would suggest using one anyway to get the best texture. Read More

I cut the recipe in half and omitted the cinnamon (I've never had it in eggnog so I figured it made sense to leave it out of eggnog fudge) and the almonds. I followed the recipe and even turned down the heat when it started to boil - but allowed it to keep boiling. It still turned out rather hard. Not need-to-use-a-hammer hard but not the smooth creamy consistancy that I look for in fudge. As for the taste it was good. Tasted like eggnog and VERY sweet. Read More

Liked the recipe not the directions. Fudge has to be brought to temperature (138 for soft ball) or it won't set. I used the quantities but brought it to 138 before adding the last ingredients. Turned out perfect but needs more nutmeg the primary flavoring for eggnog. I also sprinkled freshly grated nutmeg on top. Yes it's sweet it's supposed to be it's CANDY. Thanks for the recipe.

My husband said it would be cool if I could make eggnog fudge (he loves eggnog). So I searched for the recipe & made it for him. He loves it. He also took some to work and they gobbled it up. I added 1/2 tsp Imitation Rum flavoring and it was yummy. I think I will skip the nuts next time- kinda out of place to me when the drink doesn't have nuts in it. Thanks. Read More
