It’s holiday party season which means it’s also eggnog season! Today, I am partnering once again with Davidson’s Safest Choice Eggs to bring you this delicious, seasonally appropriate recipe for Peppermint Bark Eggnog.

Peppermint Bark Eggnog

You might recall my love of eggnog from previous posts on this blog. Last year I highlighted my delicious Candy Cane Eggnog and the year before I shared my family’s famous Coquito recipe. It’s no secret, we are big eggnog fans in my house and I always have a special batch ready for holiday guests. This year, my guests will be treated to Peppermint Bark Eggnog which can be enjoyed as a martini or shooter.

I have a special weakness for peppermint bark. So much so that I really can’t have it in the house or I will eat it all. What’s not to love? The minty taste of peppermint combined with delicious chocolate, it’s a match made in heaven – almost as good as this Peppermint Bark Eggnog.

To make the Peppermint Bark Eggnog, I start with my traditional eggnog recipe and then add peppermint extract, peppermint schnapps and white rum (if making an alcohol version). The ingredients are combined and served as either a martini or shooter, which has been drizzled in chocolate syrup, and topped with a dollop of fresh whipped cream and peppermint bark pieces. It truly is dessert in a glass.
