Eggnog Muffins


Eggnog MuffinsTis’ the season to be jolly… and drink eggnog!

Eggnog is a favorite holiday indulgence for me, especially when served with a little Captain Morgan Private Stock rum.

Eggnog and rum are the key ingredients in this very easy muffin recipe, along with golden raisins and freshly grated nutmeg. Top them with a little eggnog glaze and serve them Christmas morning or leave a few on a plate for Santa.
