It’s our last Virtual class of the year! Join us for Holiday Elves: Cookies & Eggnog. We’ll enjoy Chocolate Gingerbread Cookies straight from the oven. We’ll also make festive eggnog, delicious for sipping, easy to store, and delightful to gift. You can enjoy it with or without the booze.
Sign up for the class and make it easy on yourself: order the kit, too! You can also join the class without ordering the kit: we’ll send you a shop and prep list after you sign up.
Ingredients for Holiday Elves
These ingredients will yield 30 – 45 cookies, depending on the size you choose. As for the eggnog: the ingredients we list will make 6 servings of eggnog. It will keep for over a month in the fridge (if you have booze in it) — plenty of time to drink or to give as a gift! If you prefer to cut the eggnog amount in half, we’ve starred the ingredients to halve.
