Using Eggnog in Recipes

Eggnog is a festive and seasonal treat. I have memories of drinking Hood's Golden Eggnog with my brother, an usual change of pace from his typical beverage of choice at the time, whole milk.  We would drink the eggnog and sometimes shave eggnog over the top for a particularly decadent treat.  I haven't had eggnog in a while, but do enjoy it.  What's not to like, flavors of cream and sugar, almost caramel.  But, eggnog isn't only good for drinking, it can be used in recipes for desserts, sweets and even fudge.
Myrecipes features a Dried Fruit and Eggnog Bread Pudding that is made entirely from scratch, using eggs, milk, brandy and bread.  Try using panettone or pound cake in place of the white bread.
Taste of Home has a recipe for Eggnog Fudge using eggnog, sugar, marshmallow creme and whipping cream.
AllRecipes has an Eggnog French Toast Recipe using French bread. It is a simple recipe that has rave reviews.
Annie's Eats features a beautiful recipe for Cranberry Eggnog Muffins.  The muffins have a pecan crumb topping and look absolutely delicious.
The grocery chain Whole Foods has a recipe for Eggnog Panna Cotta with Spiced Pears.  It is a festive take on an Italian favorite dessert.
Healthy Food for Living has a recipe for Eggnog Brown Rice Pudding.  It is a simple recipe using brown rice, milk, eggnog, sugar and spices.
Lastly, myRecipes has a simple and quick Eggnog Pound Cake using cake mix. It uses pound cake mix, eggnog, eggs, nutmeg and vanilla.  It's an easy cake to make and keep in the freezer for when company stops over.
