National Egg Nog Day & Holiday Recipes Using Egg Nog

Updated on August 18, 2014

Over 25 Egg Nog Recipes!

Egg Nog - eat it, drink it, smell it, touch it, decorate with it, wear it or look at it.  December 24th is National Eggnog Day; a most unique holiday with so many scrumptious ways to celebrate it.

I really enjoy non-alcoholic eggnog, but my husband doesn’t so I haven’t had it in a while.  Last year I really wanted some so I decided to go ahead and buy it.  After having a cup or two I was wondering what I was going to do with the rest of the holiday beverage.  That’s when my quest to find recipes for “remaining” eggnog started.

You will see the results of my search for the best eggnog recipes here, but don’t stop there.  Check out all the eggnog products you’ll find listed here to help bring a little flavor into your holiday cheer.

What is Egg Nog?

Traditionally it is a holiday beverage of milk that is sweetened by sugar and/or cream, which has raw eggs that are whipped into a froth. 

It may also contain a touch of vanilla extract, ground nutmeg or cinnamon.

Peppermint Eggnog Fun

WARNING: Don’t do this on your best cups or crystal.

Looking for new ways to wow your kids over the holidays?  Try making this peppermint candy cane and white chocolate rim craft and then fill the decorated cups with non-alcoholic eggnog.

You need: 12 peppermint candy canes, broken into pieces and 3 ounces of chopped white chocolate.

Directions:  Place candy cane pieces in a food processor until they are finely crushed.  Use a strainer to sift out the dust.  Pour into a shallow dish.

Melt white chocolate in a microwavable bowl for 40 seconds at a time until chocolate is melted completely.  Stir with spoon to make sure it is smooth. Cool for a few minutes.

First dip the rim of each cup into the melted white chocolate and then dip it into the crushed peppermint.  Place cups on a tray in the refrigerator until you are ready to fill them with egg nog.

Safety Concerns

New FDA regulations allow for packaged eggnog to contain less than 1% egg yolk solids and milk or milk products. 

Non- alcoholic eggnog can be made more safely by using pasteurized eggs.
