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.
