Egg Nog Mexican Hot Chocolate + Another GIVEAWAY!

Egg Nog Mexican Hot Chocolate I had a lot of fun coming up with these holiday recipes! Hope you all enjoyed them :) This is my last Christmas-themed one of the  season and my last giveaway too! Insert sad face here.

BUT, don’t worry! My giveaways don’t end until the 23rd! You’ve got lots of time to enter all my wonderful prizes! KitchenAid mixers, Calphalon Pots and Pans, Chocolate prize packs, BUTTER prize packs, a Cuisinart food processor….all sorts of things with your name on it! You can check all the 12 Days of Giveaways prizes HERE.  Remember: the giveaways all close on the 23rd, so get your entries in! I’ll draw names on the 24th and announce my winners.

Onto this recipe! It’s super simple to make and tastes absolutely divine! Egg Nog + hot chocolate are my kind of thing. As I was mixing this up, I thought back to my Starbucks days as a barista. Egg Nog Lattes and Gingerbread Lattes were crazy popular around this time of year. So were the peppermint mochas….and the Egg Nog Chai.

I guess what I’m trying to say is you all love your hot drinks. So, give this one a whirl after a long day of shoveling snow and get cozy with a blanket by the fire. Just thinking about that makes me relaxed already. Ahhhh…….

Egg Nog Mexican Hot Chocolate 2 No step by step photos today because this is ridiculously easy to make and takes under 5 minutes in the microwave. Yes, I said microwave! I don’t want to dirty a pot I have to wash if I can just dirty a cup instead! #lazymomsunite

Feel free to find a cookie, some more chocolate or some other snacks to eat along side. Yummy holiday treats make me happy :) Actually, all food makes me happy. Except maybe chicken livers. But I can explain why later.

    Is it the cinnamon that makes it “Mexican” hot chocolate?

    I think I’m one of those few people who think cinnamon and chocolate do NOT mix, ick. Cinnamon ruins yummy chocolate. Now I like both seperately but for some reason not together. But i’m totally going for it, sans cinnamon :)

    If you really want to add the Mexican in…put in a dash of cayenne as well. Not enough to make it spicy, but enough to hint at background heat. Now THAT is a true Mexican cocoa!
