Sassy Sweets: Eggnog Cinnamon Bark

Print Friendly and PDF


Earlier this month I decided that I wanted to make little baskets of goodies for all our neighbors.  Genius!  I thought to myself.  We really only know a few of the childless neighbors.  The ones with children keep to themselves.   What better way to introduce ourselves than with a little sweet surprise?

We've already been slowly transforming our floor (yes, I give us all the credit).  For Halloween, I put decorations on the door.  We're the first door when you get off the elevator so people see these things.  I was thrilled when we also had a few trick or treaters.  For Thanksgiving / fall, I made a gorgeous autumn wreath that hung with honor until we got our act together and took it down (last week).  This week, surprise!  Another neighbor has put a wreath on their door!  I added my Christmas wreath to my door!  We're really getting into the spirit over here!

The best way to cap off a great year is with sweets.  On Facebook, I've been talking a lot about John's love for eggnog.  I thought about making eggnog cookies but I couldn't figure out how to get the taste to really shine through.  I have more great eggnog recipes next week for breakfast / desserts but I wanted one quick and easy that would be a good addition to our baskets without a lot of work...enter, my newest creation - eggnog cinnamon bark.  If you ask me, this should be even bigger than peppermint bark.  But who's asking, really?

Eggnog Cinnamon Bark (made by The Growing Foodie)
Serves:  10
3 cups white chocolate chips
1 cup eggnog
1/2 cup cinnamon chips
2 tablespoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg

Cover a cookie sheet with tin foil.  Set aside.  In a small saucepan combine white chocolate chips and eggnog.  Stir until melted.  Meanwhile, microwave cinnamon chips, until melted.  Pour the white chocolate chip/eggnog mixture onto the cookie sheet.  Drizzle melted cinnamon chips on top.  Dust with cinnamon and nutmeg. Place in the fridge to firm up, about 10-25 minutes (or freezer for 1/2 the time).  Break it lightly with your hands (I like to use a hammer...get out some aggression) and store in plastic bags until ready to use.
