I once had chocolate eggnog from the store, but I could never find it again. I often thought of that eggnog around Christmastime. This year, I took matters into my own hands. I whipped up a fresh batch and opted for dark chocolate. This one is even better than the store bought. I used organic ingredients, but it isn't necessary. Pinch this recipe, and I guarantee a new family favorite.
