Christmas Morning Drinks- Eggnog and Hot Chocolate


Christmas morning, we have sourdough cinnamon rolls or sticky buns.  I make them the night before and allow them to rise overnight in the fridge.  I also make these two drinks and stash them in Mason jars in the fridge.  Christmas morning, when everyone gets up, I pop the cinnamon rolls in the oven and pour the hot chocolate into a pan and put it on the stove on low.  By the time we’re done opening gifts, breakfast is ready to eat.  I really prefer it this way because it doesn’t require time in the kitchen to get a memorable breakfast made, knowing I’ll spend the afternoon in the kitchen cooking our big meal to eat around 1pm.  The kids feel like they’ve gotten a special treat but it didn’t put me behind and make lunch late and we got to eat breakfast instead of a hurried brunch so the big meal could be served in time.

The Christmas Mailer, including these recipes and the recipe for GFCF Cinnamon Rolls/Sticky Buns is available for purchase here.

  1. Hi Kerry Ann! We just started a tradition this past Christmas to have sourdough cinnamon rolls and eggnog for breakfast on Christmas morning also. SD cinnamon rolls are the BEST cinnamon rolls I have ever tasted! And homemade eggnog….YUM!!! Reading your post has really put me in the mood for both of these treats. Your eggnog recipe sounds delicious. I’m going to bookmark it and give it a try sometime. Thanks for sharing!
