Everyone does a cookie exchange this time of year, am I right? You go to someone's house, you bring a designated sized batch of cookies (maybe three dozen), then you bring home a mix of three dozen cookies.
While the party itself is usually fun, hanging with friends and drinking wine or holiday punch, the cookies can be everywhere from delicious to disgusting.
I've brought home some that I just can't eat, no matter how much dunking I do in my coffee. I think it's because in my family, we have certain flavors of Christmas cookies we enjoy every year. It's hard to veer off the well traveled path of cookie eating.
And one man's Gingerbread cookie, is another man's trash.
You know what I NEVER get sick of though?
Candy. Fudge, to be exact. You can't go wrong, and the flavors are endless. Instead of sending my neighbors off with a plate of cookies, I make an assortment of fudge. And the best part is, I can make the fudge today, keep it in my fridge, then slice off pieces throughout the month.
I usually like to make about 6 different flavors and give a variety to people. And, because I always have some in my refrigerator, I have some ready when neighbors I rarely speak to show up with a plate of cookies!
Today's Eggnog Fudge is delicious. Similar to these Eggnog Truffles, these creamy bites of fudge are the perfect treat for the holidays! Each pan makes about 64 pieces, so there is plenty to share!
My favorite assortment of fudge includes this Gingerbread Fudge, a classic Chocolate Fudge, Butterscotch Fudge, Butter Pecan Fudge, and so much more! I may even make a batch of English Toffee or Saltine Toffee to add to the candy plates!
ENJOY! Happy Holidays! Check out some of my other favorite candy recipes!
