White Chocolate Eggless Eggnog-12 Days of Christmas Treats
This wasn’t the post that wasn't supposed to go up today, but there are troubles with my kitchen range. Maybe today is a good time, though, as someone might like to try this for Christmas.
This White Chocolate Eggless Eggnog is good to make if someone is allergic to eggs, you crave eggnog flavor in the middle of July or you just don’t want to pay for the expensive stuff at the store.
One nice about this recipe is that you can make it sugar-free to serve to diabetics. Just use sugar-free pudding mix and Splenda in place of sugar. I prefer to use confectioner’s sugar in this recipe as it dissolves easier than granulated. Adjust the amount of sweetener to suit you taste.
I use 1 percent milk for drinking so that is what I use, but I like to add 1 cup of heavy cream to the mix. This keeps several days so can be made ahead for parties.
