EGGNOG BROWNIES: National Eggnog Month

It shouldn't come as a surprise, but December is Eggnog Month. When else do you drink or bake with Egg Nog? If you're like me, I have eggnog around this time of year, but Santa doesn't always partake. So how else to use it? Well you can make Eggnog Brownies. These are absolutely delicious! If you already have brandy in your eggnog, you don't need to add more... And, as always, use the very best chocolate and Eggnog!

Happy Holidays!

1 tsp vanilla
