The holidays are upon us, which means it’s time to whip out some of our favorite seasonal drinks and dishes. Today I’m going to share with you my new go-to Holiday drink: Peppermint Oreo Very Vanilla Eggnog. It is easy to whip up and has been a hit among my family. To make it even easier, rather than make my own Eggnog, I used International Delight’s Very Vanilla Eggnog, though you could certainly whip-up your own homemade version.
Let’s get right to the recipe, shall we?
Vanilla Eggnog (store bought or homemade)
Candy Cane Oreo Cookies
Place several candy canes into a blender and pulse until ground. Alternatively, place candy canes into a baggie and crush with a spoon.
Pour the carton Eggnog into the blender, add in 10-12 Oreo cookies. Blend well.
I made this Peppermint Oreo Very Vanilla Eggnog in the morning, photographed them and placed them in the fridge. My (picky) kids had them for dessert and I was prepared to hear “ewwww!” but instead I didn’t hear anything until their cups were empty! It was definitely a hit and I think it will be our new Holiday go-to drink. My oldest likened it to an Eggnog Milkshake. Can’t get a better ringing endorsement than that!
FOR ADULT EYES ONLY: Want to turn it into an adult drink?!? Add a splash of Peppermint Schnapps to your glass!
