Mint Chocolate Eggnog
makes 14 - ½ c. servings
4 large eggs
1/3 c. sugar
1/3 c. cocoa powder + extra for garnish
¼ t. salt
1 quart + 1 c. reduced fat milk
1 t. pure vanilla extract
1 t. pure peppermint extract
1 c. heavy whipping cream
Soft peppermint sticks (optional)
1. Whisk eggs, sugar, cocoa, salt, 1 c. milk, and both extracts in a small pot. Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, for approximately 5 minutes until thick and foamy. Set aside and let cool.
2. Strain egg mixture (to remove all solids) into a pitcher and stir in 1 quart milk.

Optional: Dust with cocoa powder and serve with soft peppermint sticks, if desired.
