Eggnog with a Cookie Ornament Garnish

A holiday party without eggnog is like Christmas without the tree! Well, almost. Instead of the traditional sprinkle of nutmeg on eggnog, try chocolate curls on top and a cookie ornament garnish on the side.

  • 4 ounces eggnog
  • 1 ounce Brandy (optional)
  • 1 bunch chocolate curls
  • 1 cookie ornament with a ribbon


Add eggnog and brandy, if desired, into a mug or holiday cup with a handle.

To make chocolate curls:

Slide a vegetable peeler along the edge of a room temperature chocolate bar and add as a topping on eggnog.

To make a cookie ornament:

Buy or make a batch of round cookies such as chocolate chips or the chocolate covered biscuits in the photo.

Use a skewer to poke a small hole in the cookie and slip a thin ribbon through.

Tie the ribbon around the mug's handle allowing the cookie to dangle as an ornament.
