Eggnog Cookie Dip

Eggnog Cookie Dip Christmas appetizer

One of the very best thing about the holidays is the chance to chow down on someone else’s creation. Seriously. Whether it’s a holiday party, dinner at a friend or family member’s house, or just neighborhood treats it’s awesome to enjoy someone else’s hard work and many times I come home with a new recipe or idea. The tricky part is if you’re the host or giver. Ugh, sometimes I just cannot think of what to make for guests.  I mean, yes these gingerbread brownies with white chocolate frosting are the bomb diggity,  as are these Peanut Butter Cup Cookies that are flipping awesome, but those can only go so far. I mean, I can’t make the same thing for everyone every single time. This time it’s the eggnog cookie dip!

I’ve teamed up with McCormick for a little Holiday Baking and I’m excited to tell you that they actually have a fantastic website filled with loads and loads of ideas and recipes. I know, that kind of sounded like a weird thing to say, but I’ve found that so many brands, and grocery stores have not hopped on the recipe bandwagon. They want you to shop there or buy their product, but then there aren’t any ideas to help you succeed. Now, I’ll be honest, I was only posting a McCormick recipe today, but when I saw all of their recipes I just had to spout off on my little tangent here. They truly have created a great site full of wonderful ideas.

This particular recipe all started when I found a yummy recipe for Eggnog Truffles on the McCormick site. I could start it days in advance and then finish it up and send it out to all of my neighbors, or serve it at my next holiday get together. Hooray for something easy during all of this hustle and bustle! Plus, this recipe tastes like eggnog, or a spiced white chocolate ball of deliciousness, and who doesn’t want to eat that?!

Is White Baking Chocolate the Same As Almond Bark?

White baking chocolate is basically the same thing as white almond bark.

Does Eggnog Have Raw Eggs?

Most store-bought eggnog actually contains cooked eggs.

The pasteurization process heat-treats the mixture so that potentially harmful microorganisms (such as salmonella) are killed or reduced.

  • Oooo, my husband Loves eggnog (and I’m never one to pass it up myself…) so I have got to try this! I’d probably just attack it with a spoon–forget about the graham cracker dippers 😉

  • I’m confused…where is the recipe for eggnog dip? The recipe above is for the eggnog truffles (which looks delicious).

    • Reply
    • Oh, Maggie sorry about that. It is the correct recipe. I had just linked to the truffles recipe and had that on my mind so I named it wrong. Thank you soooo much for pointing it out to me.

      • It’s not the correct recipe. The recipe above instructs how to make the truffles, not the dip? I’d really like to make the dip – what changes do I need to make to the recipe above?

      • Hi Jennifer, I’ve gone back over the post and the recipe and I don’t see where it says that it’s for truffles. Can you show me? Maybe there is an error somewhere.

  • I think I need to try this! I’m hosting Christmas and a New Year’s Eve party and everyone would probably go crazy over this

  • Carrian, I am IN. LOVE. with this dip. That ball looks hooooooly cow-amazing. I’m pretty sure if I made it, any intention of giving it away as gifts would go out the window with one bite because I’d surely eat the entire thing.
