I spare no expense when it comes to food. Recently, I’ve been buying my milk from the farmers market. This milk is fresh Jersey Cow milk that comes in glass bottles and is so worth the extra dollar or so that I pay to enjoy it. The taste and quality is amazing. Lucky for me, they make eggnog too, so I splurged on a bottle. It was the best damn eggnog I’ve ever had!This Eggnog Frosting is a traditional butter frosting with the delicious addition of eggnog, vanilla, and nutmeg. Its perfect for any holiday treat. 

So what does any sane person do when they have really good eggnog? Besides spike it with booze, of course. You make frosting! And cupcakes!

Because I didn’t thicken the eggnog with something like corn starch or flour (because I really didn’t want either in my frosting), I had to add  a fair amount of sugar to thicken it to the point where I could pipe it onto the cupcake. It definitely worked best when the finished frosting was cold, but even at room temperature it stayed on top of the cupcake. Needless to say – it was delicious!This Eggnog Frosting is a traditional butter frosting with the delicious addition of eggnog, vanilla, and nutmeg. Its perfect for any holiday treat.

    Made this frosting when the icing for my eggnog cookies failed. It SAVED my cookies, which were pretty bland. PERFECT! Thank you!
