These creative eggnog desserts will put everyone in the Christmas spirit. They are so fun and unique you’ll be the star of the party!
As much as I enjoy eggnog when the holidays roll around, I’ve never thought about making eggnog desserts. In fact, I’ve never even seen an eggnog dessert at a party, and I can’t figure out why!
Nothing says the holidays like eggnog and sweet treats, so why not combine them to make a dessert that everyone will rave about? From cakes and pies to trifles and fudge, there are so many ways to enjoy eggnog instead of just drinking it from a glass!
I don’t know what it is about eggnog. People either seem to love to drink it or claim they can’t stand the stuff. I have one daughter who will be drinking it from now until New Years, and another daughter who you couldn’t pay to drink it!
But something wonderful happens when you add eggnog to a dessert recipe. No matter which camp you fall into, you’re sure to enjoy the rich taste of one (or more!) of these eggnog desserts that are perfect for your holiday celebrations.
