What Is Eggnog?
Eggnog is a traditional holiday drink made with milk, eggs, cream, nutmeg, and cinnamon. It’s normally “spiked” with rum or brandy and served at parties during Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year. It’s a rich, creamy beverage full of warm spice flavors.
Ingredients Needed To Make Eggnog Cheesecake Dip
- Eggnog – your favorite store-bought brand
- Cream Cheese
- Whipped Cream – you can substitute Cool Whip
- Granulated Sugar
Equipment To Make Things Easy
My go-to piece of equipment for making this recipe is a hand mixer. I use it to blend the cream cheese with the eggnog and to make the whipped cream. I also use, mixing bowls, measuring cups, and spoons.
PRO TIP: make sure the cream cheese is softened to help it blend with the other ingredients.
I like to make fresh whipped cream for this recipe. The texture is light, and I slightly sweeten it with sugar.
You can substitute Cool Whip for homemade whipped cream. Keep the measurements the same when switching out the ingredients.
Can This Dip Be Made Ahead Of time?
Yes, absolutely! That’s one of the secrets to this recipe. You can make it up to 2 days before you want to serve it. Keep it stored, covered, in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
