When I sat down to watch a Christmas movie and relax for the night, I felt like something was missing. Grumples was curled up next to me, my tree is up, and the living room couldn’t get any cozier. And then it hit me; I needed a holiday treat to kickstart the season.
Listen to this song while you read the post. It’ll put you in the spirit for sure!
While I was at BJ’s grocery shopping for the week, I saw the Bolthouse Farms low fat eggnog. I’m pretty much an eggnog expert. I’ve tried almost every brand and if I haven’t tried it, I’ll buy it and try it! I have three different cartons of eggnog in my fridge. I’d really like to try and make my own crockpot eggnog this year. I’ve heard it’s pretty easy, so if you have any recipes, please share! The Bolthouse eggnog tastes very unique, it’s full of spice and has a very thick consistency. I wasn’t too sure if I liked it at first, but it grew on me quick.
I was going to just have a cup of eggnog, but chocolate sounded really good too, so I decided to make an eggnog hot cocoa. In a pot on medium high heat, I stirred up 1/2 cup egg nog, 1 1/2 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder, 1/2 packet stevia, and 1/4 cup of vanilla almond milk.
I added light whipped cream on top with a sprinkle of cinnamon.
You can add extra cocoa powder if you want it to be more chocolatey. I usually use a light hot coca mix with eggnog, but this was a delicious quick fix when you don’t have any in the house. It hit the spot and put me in the Christmas spirit even more.
I added a hazelnut wafer for a little something extra.
Tonight, I’m watching Christmas with the Kranks.
