It's been quite some time since I updated my blog with an actual recipe, but I just couldn't NOT include this one. This fudge is the bomb-diggity (I went to high school in the late 90's, so I have the privilege of using those crazy phrases). I found the recipe on-surprise!-Pinterest, and I'm SO glad I gave it a try this year. I was a little behind on my holiday baking (and by "a little behind," I mean I hadn't done any baking at all), and I was desperate to find a quick treat to throw together so I could hand something out to our neighbors. Well, let's just say I'm glad I bought enough ingredients for more than one batch. Will devoured almost an entire batch on his own, and I may have been guilty of sneaking a piece or two here and there. Anyway. I guess technically this is a Christmas recipe, but since I drink eggnog in January...I declare this delicious fudge a winter treat. *gavel*

3/4 cup egg nog
10.5 oz white chocolate bars, chopped into small pieces
1/2 tsp freshly grated nutmeg, plus a little more for the top of the fudge
7 oz marshmallow creme
1 tsp rum extract (okay, so I know this recipe calls for rum extract, but I'm all about using honest-to-goodness rum. I mean...good big or go home, right?).
