42 Sweet Eggnog Dessert Recipes to Eat Under the Tree (1)

'Tis the season for all of your favorite holiday flavors! Gingerbread and candy cane might dominate store aisles, but we're partial to putting eggnog into as many recipes as we can. Though the cold drink is best known for, well, drinking, it's actually an ingredient you can add to many desserts to give them a kick of Christmas flavor. Christmas cakes are all the more sweeter with eggnog added in, mornings get brighter when eggnog French toast is on the menu, and nights by the Christmas tree feel a little more cozy with a plate of eggnog cookies to nosh on. The bottom line? When it comes to the holidays, you should absolutely put all your eggnog in one basket. (Sorry, we had to.) Merry Christmas!
