What You Want Now (aka Eggnog Hot Chocolate)

There are some days that just call for hot chocolate at noon. The baby is fussy (I know, he’s 2, but he’s still our baby!), a work deadline is nearing, and there’s a slight, but not offending, chill in the air. You’ve had a late breakfast (omelets from the Ladies with garden pesto dollops and torn pieces of maplewood smoked bacon on top) and you’re not ready for a full lunch. Today, clearly, was such a day.

Glenn, in his infinite genius, wondered what it would taste like to use eggnog in the hot chocolate. What it takes like, friends, is glorious wonderment in a mug. Infinitesimal deliciousness. Fist bump excellentness. You get the jist. It’s wonderful. It’s delicious. It’s what you want to have in your mug, in your house, right now.

This is a thick, rich, decadent beverage. Keep that in mind when determining portions. It’ll generously serve 4, and give 6-8 a nice shot of chocolate splendor.

 

Eggnog Hot Chocolate
Makes: 4 generous servings
The Goods:

-3 cups eggnog
-1 cup whole milk
-3 ounce dark chocolate bar, chopped fine
-2 Tablespoons dark cocoa powder
-2 Tablespoons sugar
-Freshly grated nutmeg, to your liking
-A pinch of salt if desired

The Deal:
1) Heat the eggnog and milk on medium-low heat until the mixture starts to simmer.
2) Whisk in the rest of the ingredients.
3) Continue to whisk frequently for about 5-8 minutes, until the ingredients are fully incorporated.
4) Let it cool a little bit before serving (it will thicken a bit as it cools).
