Simple Eggnog Cupcakes

Hello Friends!

Do you like eggnog? I like it this time of year and I decided to incorporate the flavor in some cupcakes. I honestly like the cupcakes better than the drink. I made this recipe with store-bought eggnog that does not have alcohol. We are in full festivity mode here with school parties, group gatherings and full on parties.

This dessert is perfect for those times when you want to bring a festive, homemade dessert, but do not have a lot of time to spend making it.

My next gathering is an Ugly Sweater Party this weekend. Have you been to one of those yet? There will be a huge white elephant gift exchange and it is always a bit crazy, but so much fun. There will be 50 people or so involved so it gets a bit intense.

These are also great for New Year’s Celebrations.
