Eggnog Doughnut Muffins

Eggnog Doughnut Muffins

Christmas breakfast here we come! Lucky for me, since I just made these, I got this Christmas style breakfast a week early. Yesterday I took my latest favorite holiday cookie, these Melt-In-Your-Mouth Eggnog Cookies, to my in-laws family Christmas party. Yes, I wanted to devour all 30-whatever of those cookies, but somehow I managed to get them to the party :). Since I woke up this morning and my cookies were gone, but I still had half of a carton of eggnog, I decided to make another holiday inspired treat. Me and my kids call these “Santa Drink Muffins” because we all know eggnog is the preferred drink for Santa Clause. I’m pretty sure eggnog is available all year where I live but I try to resist buying it until the holidays because it makes it that much more savored and enjoyed.
