We are one week shy of Christmas Eve!
That gives me seven days to fit in a few more holiday-themed recipes; let’s start with this uniquely delicious “butter”.
There’s no actual butter in the recipe, but the texture is smooth & creamy and the flavor is rich & decadent, so I couldn’t come up with a more appropriate name.
Sweet (but not cloyingly so), the butter is perfect as a component to your favorite desserts or as part of an indulgent breakfast or snack. The sky is the limit in terms of how you can enjoy it; here are some ideas to pique your creativity:
- spread on toast
- sandwich between cookies
- slather on a baked sweet potato
- stir into yogurt
- melt into oatmeal
- dollop on top of cupcakes or muffins
- straight off the spoon
I’m completely guilty of the last one.
Why drink your eggnog if you can eat it?!
White Chocolate Eggnog “Butter”
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 4 minutes
Keywords: boil dessert side snack white chocolate Christmas winter
Ingredients (1 small jar)
- 3/4 cup Eggnog-Spiced Macadamia Nut Butter
- 1 cup all-natural white chocolate chips, such as Sunspire
- 1/4 cup light or coconut milk eggnog (such as So Delicious)
- 2 tsp coconut oil
Combine all ingredients in a double boiler (I just place a heat-proof metal bowl over a saucepan filled with one inch of simmering water) and heat until melted, stirring frequently.
Stir until fully combined, then pour into an airtight container. Refrigerate until set, at least 2 hours.
Store in the fridge.
