‘Tis the Season for ‘NUTELLA’ Eggnog

There’s something about celebrating the holiday season with a festive drink, sometimes a glass of wine just won’t do. When I think of the days leading up to Christmas, I think of decorating the tree, stringing up the lights and baking cookies- all accompanied with a glass of eggnog. I’ve tried a few recipes over the past few years and I finally have a sound one which I will share below. But the real gem in this article is my own concoction I decided to experiment with… wait for it… NUTELLA EGGNOG. Yes, you read that right, chocolate- hazelnut eggnog is everything you can ever want in a delicious holiday favorite.

 

Traditional Eggnog

Ingredients:
1 c. Heavy Cream
2 c. Milk
1/2 c. Sugar
6 Egg Whites
1 Tbs. Vanilla
Alcohol- 2 c. Amaretto, 1 c. Bourbon
Garnish with cinnamon and nutmeg

Directions:
Mix egg whites and sugar separately. Over medium heat, mix all other wet ingredients in a sauce pan. Carefully spoon in heated mixture (while continuously mixing the egg whites) small amounts at a time so the eggs don’t curdle. Add alcohol and garnish. Refrigerate. Enjoy! It’s that simple!

NUTELLA EGGNOG

 

There is a slight adjustment in the ingredients, all will be prepared the same way I have listed above for traditional eggnog.

Ingredients:
1 c. Heavy Cream
2 c. Chocolate Milk
1/2 c. Sugar
6 Egg Whites
1 Tbs. Vanilla
Alcohol- 2 c. Frangelico, 1 c. Dark Rum
Garnish with cinnamon and nutmeg OR Chocolate syrup

Eggnog is easier to prepare than it sounds, let me know what you think! Do you have a holiday cocktail you’d like to share?! Cheers!

I feel like- if there’s one fact everyone knows about me solely from social media, it’s that I’m obsessed with chocolate and cheese. Seriously, if I’m not posting about eating chocolate, I’m posting about eating cheese. One of my favorite gifts I have received is my Swiss ceramic fondue pot made for both chocolate and […]

Adding your own Personal Touch to Home Decor

Jon and I recently moved across the country (again) and this time it was during a pandemic. All things considered, the move went pretty well- but it definitely was not easy to adjust living in a new home and in a new city during “lockdown.” When we left Texas, we left a lot of the […]
