You know what I love drinking this time of year? Eggnog. It has such a unique taste, and it’s one that I find delicious! I wouldn’t have ever thought it could be used as an ingredient to make food, but I’ve discovered several recipes that prove it can. These tasty treats are great for holiday parties, breakfast dishes, or after dinner desserts.

With a graham cracker bottom and whipped cream on top, these mini cheesecakes are just right for serving at your holiday dinner table.

6. Eggnog Rice Pudding

Forget about the figgy pudding. This year, it’s all about the eggnog rice pudding! I love rice pudding in its classic form, but OMG this version sounds even better. Not only does it use eggnog, it also has raisins in it, so it’s like a rice pudding oatmeal breakfast or dessert most amazing thing I’ve ever tasted on earth.
