The Best Chocolate Eggnog Cupcakes Recipe

christmas-tree-and-decorations

 

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?

  1. These cupcakes sound good. At this time of year I really enjoy a Christmas pudding (Plum pudding) literally swimming in custard, yummy but oh so filling. 🙂
