Best of Both Worlds: Cocoa Eggnog

I hadn’t ever made homemade hot chocolate before and I can’t believe how easy it is! Four simple ingredients and I was on my way. Then I wondered what would happen if I replaced the milk with eggnog? Ohh wow. It was amazing. What a simple way to add some serious flavor to your drink!

It was so decadent and rich. I loved the chocolate flavor with the eggnog.

This was probably about 435,687,289 calories, but the Sweet’N Low helps to shed a few. I love cutting a few calories when it doesn’t affect the flavor.

Full 3 Bite Rule Disclosure: I was selected to receive samples of Sweet ‘N Low as part of the DailyBuzz Food Tastemaker program. The product samples were completely complimentary but my experience, thoughts, opinions, and words are entirely my own.
