With all the holiday baking I’ve been doing, I decided I needed to treat myself. So, I took a break to watch some cheesy Christmas television and sip on one of these little babies. They’re quick to whip up and so tasty, too. Just make sure you use full-fat egg nog; the low-fat kind is just too thin to work here.
