Peppermint is — hands down — our favorite holiday flavor. And even though it’s cold outside, we just can’t pass up peppermint ice cream.
Makes 3 quarts
2 quarts eggnog
1 16-oz. can chocolate syrup
½ cup light rum (optional)
1 cup whipping cream
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
baking cocoa (for garnish)
1. Combine eggnog, chocolate syrup and rum, if using, in a punch bowl, stirring well.
2. Beat whipping cream with an electric mixer on high speed until foamy. Add powdered sugar; continue beating until stiff peaks form.
3. Dollop whipped cream over eggnog; sift cocoa over top. Serve immediately.
