Just a few days from Christmas! I was hoping for a little snow but it looks like we will get cold rain instead. What’s a good drink to have when it rains? For me, it’s coffee.

But for the places where it is actually cold enough to snow, I have this recipe for hot chocolate eggnog for you. It is a little more involved than just pouring eggnog and hot chocolate together since the nog is already sweet. But I have it worked out for you. I used the Hartzler brand eggnog which is ready made  and available here in Ohio. There aren’t too many brands of prepared nog I will readily drink but that is one. Otherwise you can make it from scratch, although I don’t have a recipe up for that (yet).

Hopefully this will keep you warm on a chilly day. Or we can sip it in front of the a/c. 😉
