Eggnog Fudge

1 cup eggnog
3 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 cup butter, chilled
6 ounces butterscotch chips
1 cup almond, chopped, optional

Line a 9 inch square pan with aluminum foil and set aside. Spray sides of a large saucepan with butter flavored nonstick cooking spray. Bring eggnog and sugar to a rolling boil at medium heat stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. Let boil for two minutes exactly with heat turned down to the lowest setting that will maintain the boil. Stir occasionally to keep the mixture from boiling over or burning.

Fold in marshmallows, cinnamon and nutmeg; the boil will probably stop until the marshmallows completely dissolve. Bring mixture back to a rolling boil for another 6 full minutes (start timing when the boil resumes). Stir constantly. The mixture will start to turn brown during the boil. If you get brown flakes in the mixture, reduce heat a little. Remove from heat and add butter, chips and nuts. Stir until thoroughly mixed or until fudge starts to lose its glossy appearance.

Pour into prepared pan. Sprinkle with nutmeg. Cool at room temperature. Remove from pan, remove foil and cut into 1 inch squares.

Store in an airtight container.

This is like a little piece of heaven! I have no idea where this recipe came from but am glad to have it! I’ve been making this for years and it’s very good. A bit of work but totally worth it!!
