Festive Eggnog Dip

Create this Festive Eggnog Dip for a fun snack or dessert made from sweet leftovers.

Each winter, I buy my obligatory “’tis the season” carton of eggnog. Soon after enjoying the first cup, I’ve taken care of my craving—only to discover that I’m stuck with almost an entire carton of eggnog.

This season, instead of throwing away the leftovers, treat your family to a flavorful Festive Eggnog Dip. Paired with fresh fruit and cubed pound cake, this Festive Eggnog Dip is a fun way to enjoy the flavor of eggnog, but in another tasty form.
