We started getting our Christmas decorations out in November this year. We have so many activities and outings planned every weekend in December that I did not have a choice. The good part is that I am now ready for the holiday season! With decorations comes baking Christmas cookies, meat pies, meatballs stew, and Stewed Pig’s Feet. Can you ever tell that we are a French Canadian family! We also like to drink eggnog, so why not bake my favourite chocolate cupcakes with eggnog for a deliciously sweet Chocolate Eggnog Cupcakes for dessert at Christmas!

I absolutely love these chocolaty cupcakes and so did my family. I can’t wait to make them again! 

What is your favourite dessert for the holidays?
