I love brownies and will usually find any reason to make them. Topping them with nuts, some type of sauce, and Bluebell’s Homemade Vanilla ice cream makes for the best dessert!
After moving into our new home, I had to make a massive grocery shopping trip. I usually set aside a time to plan out my trips because I love coupons and any sort of deal, plus if I ever go into a grocery store without a list, I go way over budget.
Well, this day was a little different. 🙂 I made a list but because we had absolutely no food at the house, I gave myself a pass to by anything extra that we may need and eggnog was one of my exceptions. Others may have considered the eggnog purchase pretty reasonable with it being December, BUT no one in my family drinks milk or eggnog SO I had to use it in something.
I actually love the taste of eggnog but I can’t stand drinking it (if that makes any sense). I thought to myself, it would be awesome if there was a brownie that tasted like eggnog and wouldn’t you know it, Pinterest led me to a great recipe on Mother Thyme’s page.
With a few changes and with the addition of the Eggnog Rum Sauce, this was YUM! I can’t think of any better word for it other than YUM!!!
