Eggnog White Hot Chocolate
- 1 cup heavy cream, optional
- Pinch powdered sugar, optional
- 4 oz. white chocolate
- Tiny pinch of salt
- 1 cup eggnog
- 1 cup milk
- Pinch ground cinnamon
- 1-2 shots of whisky or bourbon
- Mini candy canes, for garnish
Place heavy cream in a stand mixer and whip on high speed. Add a few pinches of powdered sugar and whip until medium or stiff peaks form. If you do not have a stand mixer, you may use a handheld mixer – or if using a whisk, beat by hand. When finished, place in fridge until ready to use.
Place a small nonstick saucepot or skillet over low heat and add the white chocolate and a tiny pinch of salt. Gently stir with a whisk until melted and then slowly add the eggnog, milk, and cinnamon. Whisk until smooth and incorporated and heated through- no need to boil. If you need an extra umph, and are of age, add a shot of whisky.
Divide between 2 mugs, place a dollop of whipped cream on top and garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon and/or a mini candy cane.
