Made this last year and it came out great. Just finished another batch, and I'm sure it is just as good. I think it could use a little more eggnog though. 1cup instead of 2/3 cup. Maybe next time. Also I just use 2 tbs of milk instead of whipping cream as I don't always have it on hand. Don't think it makes any difference as long as you cook to 238 deg. Enjoy.

FUDGE CRUMBLES WHEN CUTTING IT -- MADE IT TWICE AND SAME THING HAPPENED BOTH TIMES.

I have used this recipe for about 3-4 years now, and it never fails to get rave reviews. I usually make a double batch, because people request that I bring it to holiday gatherings so much! Top notch fudge!
