Rich in taste and creamy in texture. This candy makes a great holiday gift idea!


  • 2 cups cane sugar
  • 1 cup eggnog
  • 2 Tablespoons butter, unsalted
  • 2 Tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Line an 8″ x 4″ loaf pan with aluminum foil and generously grease with butter.
  2. In a heavy 4-quart saucepan, combine sugar, eggnog, butter and corn syrup. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil. Insert a candy thermometer into mixture. Cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture reaches soft-ball stage, 234 to 243 degrees on candy thermometer (about 12 to 15 minutes).
  3. Remove candy from heat and cool, undisturbed until temperature reaches 190 degrees, about 15 to 18 minutes. Stir in vanilla. Beat with a wooden spoon until fudge has a smooth and creamy consistency, about 5 minutes. Pour fudge into prepared loaf pan. Cool completely; remove from pan and cut into squares.
