Introduction: Homemade Eggnog Custard
It is Eggnog Season! Stores bring eggnog out pretty early every year (starting in the early fall) and I have gotten really good about not buying it right away. So I waited until now so I could make Eggnog Custard. If you love eggnog and you love custard, then you are in for a special treat! This custard is rich and creamy, smooth and delightful and you actually taste the eggnog! This custard has 6 pretty basic ingredients and doesn't take long to prepare, the waiting for it to set up is the hard part. You can also add whipped cream and cranberries coated in sugar on top with a dash of cinnamon to make this dessert look all the more festive and special. If you want to see how I make this Homemade Eggnog Custard, follow along with these simple steps or watch the video.
