Chocolate Eggnog

By

Though its rich with chocolate, this not an eggnog for children. There is a heavy dose of Kahlua and rum, so this is for adults only. There are no raw eggs in this recipe, either.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate milk
  • 5 eggs
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar (packed)
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup Kahlua (or strong coffee)
  • 1/2 cup dark rum
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinammon

Preparation:

Combine milk and chocolate milk in a saucepan and scald (do not boil). In another bowl, beat eggs and sugar together until thick. Add about 1/2 cup of the hot milk to the egg mixture and mix through. Then stir the egg mixture back into the hot milk, and place over low heat. Add whipping cream and Kahlua. Cook and stir until mixture thickens. Do not boil. Remove from heat and add rum and cinnamon. Let cool and refrigerate until chilled. Serve with a sprinkling of grated chocolate and nutmeg.
