Peppermint Eggnog

  • Christmas goodie #11 is peppermint eggnog.  You guys this is some seriously good eggnog.  It has taken me a couple of years to perfect but I have finally made the perfect eggnog.  Then I went and added some peppermint schnapps and made it even better!!  This eggnog is thick and rich just like what you buy.  I have tried many variations and none have turned out as well as this.  No egg whites to fold in even!

    For some reason eggnog is something we only enjoy around Christmas time.  My husband loves this stuff and I forget that you don’t have to wait until it comes out in the refrigerated section during the holiday season to enjoy a cold glass of thick, rich and creamy eggnog.  So save this recipe and make some during the summer and have Christmas in July! 🙂
