Salted Caramel Eggnog Fudge Brownies

Egg nog bars

Full disclaimer, I’ve been sick for about two months with various ailments and I’ve been less ambitious with my baking this year, which means I’m relying on a lot of tried-and-true goodies. These bars, which I made for a couple of potlucks last year, had a fantastic yield and were a big hit. So, I decided not to blog about it right after the fact, instead I decided to keep my blog for a more timely holiday post.

Apologies for the fuzzy photo that doesn’t show clean lines. I nearly decided to skip the post because I didn’t have a great photo. Truth is, whenever I make something for a potluck for a group of people, I’m either scrambling to make it, or store it in a transportable container, so the photo often suffers.

I decided to make this recipe because I never met a salted caramel recipe I didn’t like. I also, similarly, love eggnog. Most people I know are either eggnog lovers or haters: there doesn’t seem to be an in-between. But you know what? Even the haters appreciated the refined notes in eggnog like the liquor and nutmeg, so I took a chance. Besides, if I can’t make an eggnog recipe over the holidays, when am I ever going to make it?

If you’re still with me, you can find the recipe here: Salted Caramel Eggnog Fudge Brownies.


I don’t usually have bourbon around but I always have whisky, so I used that instead.

Would I make this again?

Maybe not, because I didn’t really think about it at the time, but this is basically three recipes in one. And where I try to simplify my life at the holidays, this complicated my life.


Four stars out of five. I love salted caramel, and I may even love it with eggnog, but I didn’t need to have it with a brownie base. There was too much going on in that flavour profile and I could only handle the smallest amount without getting overwhelmed – and we all know I have a sweet tooth.
