Chocolate eggnog is a sweet twist on a holiday classic and the addition of peanut butter takes it up yet another notch. Enjoy this Buckeye Eggnog at your next family gathering.


  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter plus extra for rims
  • 6 oz dark chocolate chopped
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Whipped cream optional for garnish
  • Pinch of ground cinnamon optional for garnish
  • Pinch of ground nutmeg optional for garnish


  • Using an electric mixer with the whisk attachment whisk together egg yolks and sugar until thick and pale. Set aside.
  • In a saucepan over medium heat add the milk, cream, chocolate, and peanut butter. Stir continually until the chocolate has melted.
  • Remove from heat and slowly add the egg mixture, whisking constantly. Add vanilla. Return to heat and stir until smooth and thick enough to coat a metal spoon. Do not allow to come to a boil.
  • Refrigerate, covered, until thoroughly chilled, several hours or overnight.
  • Spread peanut butter inside the rim of serving glasses (easiest when using melted or warm peanut butter). Pour eggnog into glasses and serve with whipped cream, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
