If you read my recent interview with Stephanie Hollman, you’ll know that we were talking about the holidays. Well, egg nog and the holidays. Seems we both have a shared appreciation for the egg drinks this time of year. She is responsible for me craving her recipe for “Thin Mint Egg Nog,” and I was really dying to try it. Sadly, when her assistant sent me the recipe, it was missing a few things (like eggs, lol) so I filled in the gaps and made this yummy version. I’m sure she won’t mind. So together, I give you my and Stephanie’s Minty Chocolate (aka “Thin Mint”)Egg Nog recipe. I cooked it, so no worries about salmonella. 😉
