Eggnog Whipped Cream – A light and creamy whipped topping with all of the flavors of eggnog, vanilla and Fall. It is the perfect addition to coffee, hot cocoa or your favorite dessert!
Fall is in full-swing here in Montana and I am happy that I can finally start, #1: committing to one season of wardrobe and, most importantly, #2: creating all of the delicious Fall and Holiday treats that I have been chomping at the bit to put together. What about you? I’m sure I’m not alone here!
So, per the Fall norm, the kids and I have been on a crazy baking kick starting with anything from Apple Pie Tartlets to bread to Tie Dye Birthday Cupcakes (tutorial coming soon!) for my freshly minted 7 year-old. But the subject of today isn’t something that we bake but, rather, something we like to enjoy together while we bake and that is a little something that we like to call eggnog!
I have been wanting to make something with eggnog for a while now and the list of possibilities is pretty much endless but I wanted this to be something incredibly simple, not only for me, but for you too! So when this Eggnog Whipped Cream visited me in a dream one night (yes, I have food dreams. Admit it, you do too!), I knew that I MUST make it so!
Armed with 5 spare minutes and all of the 4 ingredients that I knew would complete my mission, I set off to make my dream a reality. I had a basic idea of how to make whipped cream based on what my lovely mother-in-law had shown me when I first came into this family and I remember being blown away at how easy it was. Using this knowledge, I played around with my ingredient quantities and came to the most heavenly result and this, my friends, is how our Eggnog Whipped Cream was born!
Since making it, I have put it on everything from my coffee to pie and I must admit I have been asking myself why it took me so long to create Eggnog Whipped Cream! If you are an eggnog lover, which I would imagine you are if you are here, you will be asking yourself the same question. So, who’s with me? Are you ready to create this treat that you didn’t know was missing from your life?
