If you want to skip the gym time the best way is with my Spiked Eggnog Dip.
It’s holiday time and all the stores are full of Christmas decorations even though I haven’t even eaten my turkey yet! I’m going to have to start spiking my eggnog, both in my glass and in my spiked eggnog dip, to get through it all.
I’m always excited when this season finally rolls around because I take a break from my usual tasks and queue up the National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation DVD.
Watching Clark fuss with all those lights is so indicative of my life during this time of year while secretly wishing I was Beverly D’Angelo sipping my eggnog and not worrying about the cat food in the jello mold.
Just to be clear, we have never had cat food in our jello mold but we are a bunch of pranksters in our house so I am not ruling it out entirely.

TAPAS TIPS & TRICKS
- The only reason I drink eggnog is the bourbon. I know that quite a few people use dark rum, but I prefer the caramel flavors in the bourbon to the sweetness of rum.
- The bourbon lends itself to the cinnamon and nutmeg spices keeping it more savory than sweet. Let’s get real for a second, having your eggnog spiked is way better than plain old eggnog.
With only 6 ingredients to make this dip, you can be sure that it will be easy to throw together for last minute guests as long as you have eggnog in your fridge.
Cream cheese, eggnog, your favorite bourbon, powdered sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg are all that is required for this delicious holiday dip! Pair it with your choice of cracker or dip-to-mouth vehicle, but I found that it tastes great with cinnamon graham crackers.
Believe me when I say that I will have my spiked eggnog dip on my graham cracker dipping stick while I’m watching crazy cousin Eddie blow up the sewer system. All while snuggling with my kids on the couch thinking I smell burnt cat hair.
