Chocolate Eggnog Recipe

Chocolate Eggnog Recipe

I love Christmas so much that I decorate in October. I don't care for eggnog, but it's such a tradition at Christmastime that I created an eggnog that I even like! —Debbie Holcombe, Brunswick, Georgia

Cook and stir over medium heat for 12-15 minutes or until mixture is just thick enough to coat a spoon and a thermometer reads at least 160°. Do not allow to boil. Immediately transfer to a large bowl.
