This is the best way I can think of to toast in the New Year – with or without alcohol.
Mocha Eggnog Recipe
My friend made these for Christmas Eve but they would be just as delicious on any cold winter’s night in front of a fire – especially if you want to use REAL RUM instead of the extract.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 10 min.
MAKES: 10 servings
5 cups chocolate milk
4 cups eggnog
1 cup heavy whipping cream, divided
2 tablespoon instant coffee granules
2-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon rum extract
In a large saucepan, combine the milk, eggnog, 1/2 cup cream and coffee granules; heat through. Remove from the heat; stir in extracts. In a small bowl, beat remaining cream until stiff peaks form. Dollop over eggnog. Yield: 2-1/2 quarts.
Editor’s Note: This recipe was tested with commercially prepared eggnog.
