5 ways to enjoy eggnog this Christmas

Eggnog is a traditional festive drink, with a history going back as far as the 1700s! Although it’s usually enjoyed in its milk punch liquid form, what five other delicious ways can you enjoy it this Christmas?


1. Chocolate and Eggnog Cupcakes

For a joyful twist on a cupcake, spiced chocolate cupcakes with eggnog icing are a deliciously indulgent Christmas treat. Adding cinnamon and cloves truly makes these chocolatey delights unique. The eggnog icing is subtle enough to not be too overpowering, with a nice balance of rich buttercream and delicate chocolate sponge.

2. Maple Bourbon Eggnog

If you have savoury taste buds, maple bourbon eggnog with bacon strips will be right up your street! This interesting combination is quick and easy only taking 10 minutes to make.  Serve in glass mason jars for a vintage twist before adding the crispy bacon on top.

3. Eggnog Doughnut Muffins

Doughnuts plus muffins with an eggnog spin, what more could you want? These tasty treats come shaped as muffins, but have a more solid doughnut texture. These are perfect for dunking in anything you like – melted chocolate, coffee… the possibilities are endless. To give the illusion of doughnuts, sprinkle powdered sugar over the muffins once baked, and remove from their paper case. These are best served when fresh, but are equally as tasty a few days later!

4. Eggnog Bread Pudding

A traditional staple, eggnog bread pudding certainly spices up the original recipe. Bread pudding is fairly simple, with just bread, milk, egg and sugar. The beauty of this bake is that you can add as many festive ingredients as you like, such as cinnamon, ginger, bourbon and more. Eggnog bread pudding can be enjoyed as a dessert on Christmas Day, or simply as a delight across the yuletide season.

5. Eggnog Cookies

With the luscious flavour of eggnog icing drizzled on top, eggnog cookies are a fun alternative to standard Christmas cookies. These take just 15 minutes to bake, and guarantee smiles all round.
