Candy canes, fruitcake, eggnog... there are no shortage of seasonal treats this time of year. However, I have always had an infatuation with eggnog, and its creamy essence reigns supreme atop my list of must-buys during the holiday season. Yeah, sorry fruitcake, nothing personal but no one likes you.
Was that too harsh?
This year I wanted to take my obsession with eggnog up a level and develop a Christmas-worthy dessert featuring its glorious flavor. Rich and velvety Chocolate Eggnog Pie is just the answer!
I swung by the grocery store to grab my ingredients, including Kemps Golden Eggnog, and I had plenty to make a few batches of this pie while reserving some of its golden nectar for my enjoyment as well!
Of course, I also couldn't help but pick up some Kemps Snowmen Ice Cream Treats too, for later.
This Chocolate Eggnog Pie was such as hit, my son was even raving about it the following morning. I think he was hinting that I should let him eat more for breakfast. Fat chance buddy.
The pie filling is comprised of chocolate pudding that is infused with eggnog rather than milk. It is a perfect substitution and the eggnog flavor really shines through. If you are an eggnog lover, this recipe is a no brainer.

If you enjoyed my Chocolate Eggnog Pie recipe then you should probably like me on Facebook and follow me on Pinterest too. That’s what I would do at least, because if you don’t get to know me but you still use my recipe it is kind of like taking candy from a stranger, and your mom taught you not to do that.

Have you ever tried replacing the milk in a pancake recipe with eggnog? My kids love it and it's differentiated just enough from regular pancakes to make it a nice holiday treat.
This assumes that I have enough eggnog leftover that I can cook with it...

I am SO in love with this chocolate eggnog pie, Ben! I made eggnog rice pudding a couple of years ago and ever since, I can't just chug it from the carton... I have to add it to ALL of the things!
By the way, there's no such thing as being too harsh with words where fruitcake is concerned. *Blergh!*
