Salted Caramel Eggnog
Who knew making eggnog was SO EASY to make at home? Make this recipe on the stove in under 15 minutes.
3 cups whole milk
1 cup heavy whipping cream
4 cinnamon sticks
3/4 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon grated nutmeg
2/3 cup white sugar
1/2 cup caramel syrup, plus more for garnish
1 tablespoon sea salt, plus more for garnish
3/4 cup good quality dark rum (optional)
2 egg whites for garnish (optional)
In a large saucepan, combine milk, cream, cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg. Bring to the boil over a medium heat. When bubbling remove from heat. Allow to sit for at least 5-10 minutes to steep.
In a large stand mixer, beat eggs and sugar on medium/high until fully combined.
Pour egg mixture into the milk and whisk quickly until fully combined.
Add caramel, sea salt and rum (if using). Continue whisking to fully combine.
When you're ready to serve, beat the egg whites on high until foamy peaks form.
Pour the eggnog into the glass leaving room at the top for the fluffy egg whites.
Garnish with nutmeg and caramel sauce.
