Egg Nog Blondies


If I wonder why my jeans are getting a litte snug it’s because of dangerously delicious Egg Nog Blondies.  

I’m feeling a little guilty for eating almost this entire batch, but trust me you want to give these a try.  I am trying to convince myself not too feel to bad because I used light egg nog;  like that really helps in the midst of chocolate chips, white chocolate chips and brown sugar.  In the end, these are worth every bite.  I’ll just tell my twins to run around a little more to help me burn off some more calories.   


Let’s talk a little about these perfect treats as to my lack of willpower when it comes to eating these, or any sweets for that matter.  I had got a bit of egg nog to have on as I do every holiday but also with the intentions to create a delicious dish or two since egg nog is such a traditional holiday beverage.  My Pumpkin Brownies/Blondies (or as I have named them, Pumpkies) were popular this fall.  I wanted to create a holiday blondie and this combination was turned out fantastic.  It has the perfect hint of egg nog, it’s not overpowering.  If you serve these to guests, they will be pleasantly surprised of the flavor since these don’t scream egg nog when you look at them.  These are good just plain, but with the addition of a white chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate and walnuts makes these a treat that will be hard to keep on hand.  


The texture is between a brownie and cake.  Its not as soft and light as cake, but it is not as hard and chewy as a brownie.   It is soft, moist and delicious.  The perfect dessert to serve for a holiday gathering!   


Enjoy!

  1. With all these delicious looking egg nog recipes floating around I feel like I need to give it another chance!

  2. I adore blondies and these flavors make the perfect holiday blondie…love it!

  3. You know, I’ve never even tried egg nog!! I wonder if I’d like it….

  4. Oh my husband would be a happy guy if I made these, thanks for the recipe.

  5. A cross between a brownie and a cake? I’m sold! How delicious. I’ve not seen eggnog in the shops here but I’ll have to keep an eye out for it this week.

  6. I am ALL over these! Yum! I love eggnog so I know these will be great and fitting for the season!

  7. I would not be able to eat just one of these. They look fantastic! Great pictures.

  8. Hi Jennifer!
    These look yummy! I love Eggnog. I wish I took the time to make things with it. Thanks for adding these Blondies to my Blog Hop!

    Merry Christmas! :)

  9. made these for christmas eve. my oven is very hot so i turned the temp down to 335. worked out really well. can’t wait til my guests try them! thanks for the recipe!

  10. WOW – these look so yummy. I just bought (on sale with coupons) 2 containers of Silk EggNog so will use that in these, now if only we could reduce the butter & make these even more healthy!

  11. These are my new favorite, but instead of chocolate morsels I add cinnamon chips. They freeze very well and taste fresh out of the oven when I reheat them in the microwave!

  12. Im wondering how it would be without the chocolate chips. I might leave them out and double the white chips

  13. That’s a great idea! I think they will be just as good with white chocolate chips.
