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!!!
- 2 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
- ½ tsp. corn starch
- ½ tsp. stevia or 2 tbsp. sugar
- ¼ tsp. cinnamon
- ¼ tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 pinch salt
- 2 cups eggnog (I used Dairy Free)
- 1 cup coconut milk, from carton (Do not use canned) or milk of choice
- 1 oz rum (omit for kid-free version)
- Freshly grated nutmeg
- In a medium sauce, over low heat,add all your ingredients, except the rum. Whisk constantly until thick and bubbly. Whisk in Rum, Pour into a mugs. Top with freshly grated nutmeg and whip cream if desired.
I am getting pumped up to watch National Lampoons Christmas Vacation!! You can bet that I will be drinking my Eggnog Hot Chocolate while watching it!!!
I can’t wait to see what the crew at #SundaySupper will be sharing with us this week. I wonder what their inspiration was? A movie? song or a tv show? What is your favorite holiday movie?
Have a great day!!
