How to make Spiced Chocolate Eggnog

Ingredients you’ll need:

  • large egg yolks
  • granulated sugar
  • milk
  • heavy/double cream
  • dark chocolate
  • vanilla extract
  • ground cinnamon
  • ground nutmeg

To make this eggnog, simply whisk together the egg yolks, and sugar until pale and thick. Set aside.

In a large saucepan over medium heat, add the milk, cream, chocolate, vanilla, and spices. Stir often until the chocolate has melted, and everything is combined.

Remove from the heat and pour into the egg mixture, whisking contantly. Pour the mixture back into the pan and heat gently on low-medium, stirring contantly, until smooth and thick enough to coat a spoon. Do not allow to boil or turn up the heat!

Remove from the heat, pour into a mixing bowl (or another heat-proof container), cover and refrigerate overnight, or for up to 3 days.

For a perfectly smooth eggnog, pour through a sieve before chilling.

This recipe is super easy to throw together, and is prepped in under 20 minutes. It also yields about 6 – 8 servings, but if you need to make less, simply halve the recipe, or keep any leftover servings in the fridge for up to 3 days. Pour into glasses and enjoy cold topped with whipped cream!
