You could definitely use store-bought egg nog instead, but I don’t think anything really compares to the egg nog recipe my friend Barb shared with me last year. On the other hand, if I’m going to make egg nog, I might prefer to just drink it straight and save the stuff in the carton for using in hot chocolate instead.
- 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/3 cup white sugar
- 1 pinch salt
- 1/3 cup water
- 2 1/2 cups homemade eggnog*
- 1 1/2 cups milk
Combine cocoa powder, sugar, salt and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Let simmer for 1-2 minutes, stirring often.
Add eggnog and million and continue heating over medium-low until hot.
Top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of nutmeg.
Makes 4 servings.
