Eggnog can be a hot topic over the holidays. Some tend to think it’s a disgusting concoction, while the rest of us are swooned by it’s thick creamy nutmeg-y loveliness, that may or may not remind you of a socially acceptable way of drinking of something comparable to pancake batter, laced with booze. If you simply can’t get enough of eggnog (pfft, as if one can get enough!) then here’s some recipes to get the eggnog party going all season long in recipes that aren’t just for sipping.

1. Christmas Meringues With Eggnog Buttercream

These are a really fun idea for making a cookie, that’s not quite a cookie. They’re light and airy and will be gorgeously displayed on a dessert table over the holidays. With buttercream filling that’s laced with eggnog and rum flavoring, they’ll melt right in your mouth.

2. Eggnog Overnight Oats

Now, I realize that eggnog is a typical evening and occasionally mid-day drink to enjoy. However, you’re an adult and nobody can tell you what to do. So yay! Breakfast eggnog, with a spoon!

3. Eggnog French Toast

My parents are the kind of people who like to saturate the holidays with everything holiday. So this is exactly the type of breakfast they’d whip up on Christmas morning. Plus, did I not just give you permission to enjoy breakfast eggnog? Let me tell you the ways…

4. Eggnog Snickerdoodles

Snickerdoodles are my favorite sugar cookie to make. Why? Well, because I’m impatient baker and don’t like the the process of all the rolling and the cutting. Making the dough was enough work, thank you very much. So this recipe is completely in my realm of do-able for me, and they always turn out! This recipe takes a classic snickerdoodle, and makes it FESTIVE with eggnog!

5. Eggnog Dip

Served with graham crackers or ginger snap cookies, this recipe is a step away from me just face planting in the bowl.

There’s something special about tapping a spoon against the top crust of a creme brulee, breaking it, and diving in. This one comes to you with an added bonus of being dairy-free, but full of nog.

10. Eggnog Fudge

Whipped up in less than 15 minutes, it’s your favorite winter bevvie, served up as fudge!

11. Eggnog Macarons

These are a great option if you or a loved one is gluten free, or grain free. Macarons, are made with almond flour! The “cookie” portion is flavored with nutmeg (a token spice often topped on eggnog) and the icing filling, is eggnog frosting. Oh, my.

12. Healthy No-Bake Eggnog Balls

I had to throw in a healthy one… because over the holidays and with the sheer mass of indulgences to be tempted with, it’s always lovely to have a few you can truly feel okay about enjoying, guilt-free!
