12 Days of Sharing:Holiday Eggnog Fudge~Noel’s Kitchen Tips

Our Backyard on the Ranch

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. With the temperatures dropping, snowflakes falling, the fireplace lit and the holiday decorations are all through the house. To me, the holidays are so much fun when the whole family can get involved, especially the kids. One of the best ways to make wonderful holiday memories with kids is to bake holiday cookies and treats. Homemade baked goods are extremely popular during the holidays. The memories that creating Christmas baked goods provide is by far the most important thing.

This holiday season, I wanted to try some new Christmas recipes to share with family, friends and add to our team’s  Nevada County Bakers  family cookbook.

Today I’m sharing one of those new recipes with you as part of the 12 Days of Sharing, being hosted by In Jennie’s Kitchen.  This year I’ve enjoyed being active in my community and excited about being able to take part in the Share Our Strength campaign during this past year and dedicating myself to help in the fight against childhood hunger. Without community service, we would not have a strong quality of life. It’s important to the person who serves as well as the recipient. It’s the way in which we ourselves grow and develop.

By posting and sharing your favorite holiday cookie, candy or treat along with a favorite holiday memory, you can contribute to the Share Our Strength Campaign by raising awareness in your community and across America. In the year ahead, nearly 17 million children in America will face hunger. That’s nearly one in four children. This holiday season, you can help. Join us in the fight to End Childhood Hunger.

  2. Yum! That fudge looks fantastic. I’m not a huge fan of eggnog (to drink), but I think it sounds like a delightful fudge flavor. I’ll give this one a try!

  3. Thanks Jen! I cut down the sugar by 1 cup to 2 cups rather than 3 cups because it rather a sweet tasting fudge. I don’t drink egg nog that much either but I’ve only tried it as a drink and heard others rant and rave about egg nog fudge so I thought I’d give it a try.
