It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The Christmas season has always been my favorite holiday since I was a little girl. I love all the pretty decorations, seeing family and friends, parties and, most of all, the food!

Eggnog is my very favorite Christmas drink. I love its creamy sweetness with a hint of spice. I will start buying it as soon as I see it hit the grocery store shelves. There is always a carton or two in my fridge.

Eggnog Dip captures the essence of eggnog in a creamy, sweet dessert dip. If you are a fan of eggnog, it’s a must-try!

    • Cream cheese – I use the regular cream cheese (not the light version)
    • Eggnog – I don’t use low fat eggnog here either. I want the creaminess!
    • Nutmeg
    • Rum extract – I find this product alongside the vanilla extract in the grocery store.
    • Cool Whip – Try making homemade stabilized whipped cream if you can’t get Cool Whip in stores.

    Substitutions and Variations

    • Can’t find rum extract? Substitute vanilla extract in its place.
    • Want a boozy dip? Use 2 teaspoons of dark rum instead of the rum extract.

    Storage Instructions

    Store any leftover eggnog dip in a covered container in the fridge for up to three days.

    As a general rule of thumb, you should not let the dip sit out at room temperature for more than 2 hours. After that, refrigerate!

    Yes, you can make this eggnog dip recipe in advance. I recommend preparing the dip up to a day before you want to eat it and store it until then in the fridge. Make sure it’s in a covered airtight container so it doesn’t absorb any “fridge smells”.

    Recipe Tips

    • Don’t stress if you can’t find rum extract. It may be hard depending on where you live. Leave it out or use vanilla extract instead.
    • Make sure the cream cheese is softened before you mix it in the recipe. It will be much easier to get a smooth and lump-free result. I let mine sit at room temperature for an hour before I need to use it.
    • Use store-bought cookies if you don’t have homemade cookies on hand. I like using gingersnap cookies!
