Eggnog Brownies and Eggnog Hot Chocolate

Today is National Eggnog Day! If you're like me, I always have eggnog around this time of year, but Santa doesn't always partake. So how else to use it? Well you can make Eggnog Hot Chocolate. Mix cocoa powder with equal amounts of hot water and eggnog for a delicious twist to your hot chocolate.

Or you can make Eggnog Brownies. These are absolutely delicious! If you already have brandy in your eggnog, you don't need to add more...

Merry Christmas!

I love the flavor of eggnog but not really drinking eggnog. So, eggnog brownies sounds perfect. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!
