Christmas Morning Egg Nog Muffins

by aimee @ shugarysweets on November 18, 2012

Quite possibly the easiest, most delicious mini muffin ever.

Even my egg nog hating husband enjoyed these! Plus, this recipe makes about 72 mini muffins. That’s a lot of muffins folks. I freeze them in ziploc gallon freezer bags (1-2 dozen per bag). Thaw on counter before serving…these are fantastic to keep on hand during the holiday season!

Seriously. Look at the nutmeg in there. Mmmmm…..

Go make a batch of them today so you have some in YOUR freezer for Christmas morning! One of our favorite traditions is leaving a cup of eggnog (instead of milk) for Santa. I think he would enjoy a few of these muffins instead of cookies too! At least I know OUR Santa would!!

So, if I came down your chimney dressed as Santa I’d be greeted with some of these eggnog muffins? They look and sound amazing. I need to find a good homemade eggnog recipe as they don’t sell it at my local supermarket.

I’d love it if you came over to my Sugar & Slice Sunday Link party and link these bad boys up!

Haha, this cracked me up! Yes, you will find some of these muffins with a cup of eggnog.
You definitely need to make some homemade nog…I’ve got more eggnog recipes coming soon!!

Can I please move in with you? Or can’t we at least be neighbors, so you can bring me all these awesome goodies you make. As soon as I pick up a carton of eggnog, these muffins will be the first thing I make for sure!

Jenn, haha, what’s one more in the house!? I need someone else to eat more of these goodies!

Jocelyn @BruCrew Life November 18, 2012 at 10:46 pm

I love eggnog a little too much…no way would these last long enough to freeze. Between my son and I, we would demolish the whole batch. Too funny because we leave Santa eggnog too:-)

Trust me, they are too good you will HAVE to freeze them to keep yourself from eating them all. And I’m pretty sure Santa would love these with his cup of eggnog….

Ashley @ Kitchen Meets Girl November 18, 2012 at 11:24 pm

Okay, I can drink eggnog by the gallon, sooooooo I’m pretty sure these wouldn’t last long in my house. I don’t know about Santa, but Mrs. Claus is going to put in a request for these Christmas Eve. They look divine–and that picture with the nutmeg flecks? Perfect!!

Reply

aimee @ shugarysweets November 19, 2012 at 8:47 am

We drink a lot of eggnog this time of year too! It’s a good thing I don’t make my own or we’d be in trouble all year long!

Medeja November 19, 2012 at 2:08 am

How gorgeous! I should probably find where to get eggnog first :)

Yeah, I forget not everybody has eggnog available. I have seen some great recipes to make your own online! I think you need to do that, I have more eggnog recipes coming soon!

Elizabeth November 19, 2012 at 2:53 pm

These look amazing but do you think I could use butter instead of Crisco? We don’t use shortening in this house :(

And if you ever feel like moving, the house next door from me is for sale. I’ll make the coffee if you make the muffins.

I haven’t tried all butter, but most recipes you can easily swap and substitute. I imagine they would be just fine! Just be sure to use unsalted butter!

Paola @ gnom-gnom.com November 19, 2012 at 3:28 pm

I’m not even a huge fan of egg nog either, but these do look amazing! Same question as Elizabeth, possible to substitute directly with butter?

I haven’t tried it with all butter, but most of my recipes work just fine to substitute. Be sure to use unsalted butter! Let me know!

Looks good! Did you ice them before they went in the freezer or after?

Reply

Before! Then I just thaw them on the counter for about 20 minutes! ENJOY!

Hi these sound delicious just wondering if these can be kept at room temp with this glaze?

I’m right in the middle of making these, still waiting for the oven to preheat so I can pop the muffin tin in, and I’m wondering if the dough is supposed to be as thick as it is. It seems like drop-cookie dough, and muffin batter is usually thinner, more runny. I thought maybe I hadn’t added enough eggnog, but I checked your recipe and I did everything right. Is the batter normally thick than regular muffin/cake batter?

Reply

aimee @ shugarysweets December 21, 2012 at 6:54 pm

It is a little more dense! You’re doing fine :) ENJOY!!!

keri December 21, 2012 at 7:05 pm

Ok, yes. They just came out of the oven looking perfect! Thanks!

Cheryl December 25, 2012 at 7:28 am

I made these yesterday for my xmas eve get-together. Taste was great but everyone said they were very dry:( I found the batter very thick and even added extra eggnog.to try and thin it out. Anyone else make them and found the same?

Reply

Mona November 1, 2013 at 1:00 pm

Yum!! Can’t wait to try them! I love anything and everything eggnog! Is there any way I can substitute Crisco for something else?

Reply

Sam November 2, 2013 at 12:24 pm

I’ve been asked to make Eggnog muffins for the Sheriff Dept that my husband works for. They aren’t ‘into’ the mini muffins. How long would you suggest I bake them in normal size muffin tins? And roughly how many would the recipe make? Wondering if I need to go buy more tins…again :)

lisa g. November 21, 2013 at 5:46 pm

For regular size muffins..how long would it take to bake?
Also, same oven temp?
Thank you!

Linda December 5, 2013 at 3:15 pm

These were a big hit. My group loves mini size. They say that justifies eating more. They likes them not being over sweet and said they were great with coffee. Given our current cold snap there is a lot of coffee being drunk to justify more muffins!

Annie P December 10, 2013 at 2:57 pm

Just finished making these. I haven’t done the glaze yet but I snacked on one to just test them and it was delicious.

Debbie December 19, 2013 at 9:06 am

Hi there! I plan to make these tonight…they look so good! I was thinking of adding rum to the glaze but not sure what it will do to the consistency. What do you think?

Reply

Angela December 21, 2013 at 6:28 pm

Could you bake this recipe in mini loaf pan?

Reply

aimee @ shugarysweets December 22, 2013 at 3:47 pm

I’m sure you could. I don’t know how long you would bake it for though!

Reply

PamelaDee December 28, 2013 at 3:45 pm

How would you adjust the time to make regular muffins? I don’t have a mini muffin pan.

Reply

Tiffany November 6, 2014 at 7:18 am

Just baked these, and the recipe was not so great. Batter was way too thick (like cookie batter consistency), and muffins turned out too oily (it drenched the muffin liners!). Maybe the recipe needs more eggnog?
