There it is in all of its glory. Even eggnog haters will be asking for this easy dip for gingerbread cookies. Technically, I belong to the haters category, and I love this recipe. So does my five year old.

I watched him lick his small bowl clean. Which is saying a lot. I would even go so far as to say this would be great as a cupcake filling or even topping to a pumpkin pie. It is creamy and just sweet enough that it does not overpower your cookie dippers!

Tips and FAQ’s:

This is the TOP of all eggnog dessert recipes. So quick to make and tastes insanely addictive. Below are some of the top questions I’m asked about this recipe.

What is eggnog dip?

Eggnog dip is a creamy dessert that is the perfect way to highlight the classic holiday flavor. Eggnog and cornstarch are combined in a small saucepan and cooked until slightly thickened. Sour cream and whipped cream are folded into the cooled mixture giving you a light and creamy dip recipe.

What to serve with dessert dip:

Eggnog dip is best served with your favorite Christmas cookies. We especially love to use crisp gingersnaps or gingerbread cookies.

My only advice is to make this at least one day in advance. It needs a while to cool completely and it is not too great warm.

Dust with a little cinnamon to give it a great appeal and be prepared to watch this disappear. This is great to take to family parties or get together because it is so simple to make. Be prepared to hand out the recipe!
