Egg nog is one of those Christmas traditions that tends to be somewhat polarizing. Either you love it or you despise it. I for one am pretty much obsessed. One of my favorite versions is Harris Teeter’s light egg nog mixed half and half with skim milk and a splash of Italian Sweet Cream coffee creamer. It is a combination I have perfected over time and I find it to be ideal because there is less guilt but still plenty of sweetness. I have never added liquor to my egg nog because I think it would make my egg nog too heavy and probably make me sick. I have seen many desserts this year that incorporate egg nog. I find myself to be very interested in all of these.
Egg Nog Martini * Egg Nog Cake
Egg Nog Macarons * Egg Nog Fudge
Egg Nog Cookies * Egg Nog Pound Cake
Egg Nog Cupcakes with Spiced Rum * Egg Nog Cookies
I also found this recipe for Homemade Egg Nog and I decided to try it out while I watched “Elf” for the 5th time so far this year. Nothing like fatty egg nog on a Thursday.
Here is what it looked like in the picture.
Here is mine:
I can be fancy and put cinnamon sticks in my picture too.
Summary and Results:
It tasted very smooth and did not have the after taste that some store bought egg nog has (that’s almost a little like licorice). I would say that this recipe is perfectly spiced and tastes slightly like custard. Quite delicious all in all. However, I will still be buying my Harris Teeter egg nog regularly. This is definitely more of a special occasion kind of deal.
How do you like your egg nog? If anyone else has any excellent egg nog recipes or combinations, please let me know as I am more than willing to try.

I am one of those people that LOVE egg nog. Both with and without liquor. It’s good with liquor actually and I am not a rum fan. I can only have 1 drink if it has liquor in it though. I like my egg nog any way I can find it but I’m sure yours would be the best. Will there be egg nog on Saturday? I haven’t had any yet this Christmas season. By the way, your cinnamon stick suuuuure are fancy!
