Today for #SundaySupper we had to make something that was inspired by our favorite holiday music, movies, and TV shows. I chose my all time favorite holiday movie which is National Lampoons Christmas Vacation. I love that movie! I watch it every year! However, I haven’t yet this year, but I think it will be perfect to watch on Christmas Eve.
I just love this cooky family! Never a dull moment when Clark W. Griswold is involved. So what did I make that was inspired by the Griswolds? I made The Griswolds famous Eggnog, but with a spin!!
Clark and Eddie served up some Eggnog in the famous Moose Mugs, but unfortunately I didn’t have a Moose Mug but I did find out you can buy it online. I would have gotten one if I had time to place an order, but after this post, what would I do with moose head mugs?
My Eggnog as I stated above has a little twist to it! I added cocoa to it to make it an Eggnog Hot Chocolate! For adult version, I added a little bit of rum to it! Yum!!! This is one drink I can get into!!! My drink is creamy, chocolaty, rich and has the perfect amount of spice and will please all hot chocolate and eggnog lovers. Just omit the rum for a kiddie version!
The Eggnog Hot Chocolate is super easy to make. In a medium sauce pan, I added Dairy Free Eggnog, unsweetened coconut milk, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, stevia, cinnamon and cornstarch to thicken it up. I whisked it together until it got thick and bubbly. I poured it into my Christmas Mug and topped with whip cream and freshly grated nutmeg. So good!!!
