‘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 three 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 explore this year… 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! Cheers!
