Dark Chocolate Cinnamon Easter Eggnog
4 egg yolks
2 cups milk
cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup finely chopped dark chocolate
2 tablespoons unsweetened dark cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup chocolate liqueur (such as Godiva Original Liqueur)
1 teaspoon vanilla
Garnish (optional): whipped cream& cinnamon
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, whisk together egg yolks, milk, sugar, dark chocolate, cocoa powder, and cinnamon. When mixture is well combined and just starts to boil and bubble, remove from heat.
Pour mixture in a bowl over an ice bath and whisk for several minutes until cool. Whisk in cream, liqueur, and vanilla. Serve immediately or store in refrigerator.
Top with whipped cream and cinnamon if desired.
Makes 4 (about 1-cup servings)
SNAPPY TIPS: Make sure you whisk the egg yolks and liquids well while over the heat so that the eggs don’t curdle.
SNAPPY SUBSTITUTIONS: If you don’t like dark chocolate you could use original unsweetened cocoa powder, and substitute your favorite chopped chocolate for the chopped dark chocolate. You can also substitute any liqueur for the chocolate liqueur.
Why should Eggnog be just a winter holiday drink?? Dark Chocolate Cinnamon Eggnog is perfect for Easter or spring! Goes great with my Cake Batter Truffles! From my blog - http://www.snappygourmet.com
