A Tribute to Holiday Tradition

Almost everyone I’ve asked about eggnog, either hates it or loves it. It’s certainly a dish that divides opinions. I personally really enjoy it! It could be because I grew up seeing my dad enjoy this iconic holiday drink every year. Perhaps it’s the nostalgic memories this spiced drink brings me that makes my love of it so much more profound. I still vividly remember how seeing the first cartons of eggnog of the season in the grocery stores brought excitement, signifying that the holidays were near. My dad would always make sure to snag a carton or two. 

These bars draw inspiration from the viral churro cheesecake bars that I made for the first time back in 2020. Back when I first tried the OG recipe a few years ago, I appreciated the simplicity and convenience which are SO important to consider during one of the busiest times of the year. This year, I wanted to add a festive twist and what screams “festive” more than eggnog?
