There’s no denying it- we are in full-blown Christmas mode, aren’t we? There has been a whole lotta holiday baking going on in this house, and absolutely no shortage of sweet treats. I’ve been whipping up countless goodies this month between catering events and making edible gifts for friends, family and clients. So today I wanted to round up my five favorite eggnog recipes for the season because it’s such a classic flavor that lends itself to loads of different holiday treats. It was SO difficult to pick only five this time- I actually considered changing this series from Five Faves to TEN Faves! But in the end I was able to narrow it down to these irresistible eggnog confections- I know you’re going to want to make them all (and you should!):
These soft and pillowy eggnog marshmallows have been one of my most popular recipes to date, and it’s no wonder why- they are SUPER yummy! They’ll make a fantastic DIY gift along with a batch of homemade hot cocoa mix. Eggnog Marshmallows– Le Petit Eats
These eggnog macarons look SERIOUSLY amazing. I might need to abandon all other holiday baking projects in favor of these. Eggnog Macarons– The Gunny Sack
I can personally vouch for the yumminess of this recipe because I adapted a version of it last week for a holiday dinner I catered. I made a gingersnap cookie crust and accented it with a cranberry mandarin conserve and the guests went gaga over it! Mini Eggnog Cheesecake– Baked By Rachel
What’s more festive than a red and green funfetti cupcake with eggnog buttercream frosting? Cannot wait to give these a try! Eggnog Cupcakes– Baker By Nature
Start your day off on the sweetest note without ever leaving the house with this Starbucks copycat eggnog latte. Starbucks Copycat Eggnog Latte– Diethood
