Eggnog Mousse Party Cups

I promise, this is my last eggnog recipe for the year! The stuff is just so damn darn delicious, I want to eat/drink it for breakfast, lunch and supper…
Seriously – if you haven’t tried eggnog yet, try these eggnog mousse party cups, it’s such a great introduction!

I reckon these are perfect desserts for your NYE shindig – make them in advance, stick them in the fridge and smugly present them just when everyone thinks the night can’t get any better ;)

{Oh – and remember to add a sparkler!}

Eggnog Mousse Party Cups {LCHF, Sugar-Free, perfect party dessert}

[recipe title=”Eggnog Mousse Party Cups” servings=”6″ time=”30mins + chilling time” difficulty=”easy”]

You will need:

1 cup full cream milk
1 cup thick cream
1 cup whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 tbsp. xylitol
4 egg yolks
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp mixed spice
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tbsp. brandy
1/2 sachet gelatin {5 g}
1 tbsp. cold water
6 squares of my low carb brownies
6 squares Lindt dark choc {70 / 85%}

Prepare 6 glasses by crumbling 1 brownie into each glass {remember, this recipe makes 6}.

Next, prepare the eggnog custard:
Heat the milk & thick cream in a saucepan until hot but not boiling.
While this is heating, whisk the yolks, vanilla, xylitol and spices together.

Ladle the hot cream into the yolk mixture while whisking constantly until it’s all mixed in.

Return the mixture to the saucepan and heat gently, while continuously whisking, until it has thickened and is the consistency of pouring custard.

Add the brandy and stir through.

Dissolve the gelatine in cold water and add to the warm custard, stirring it until it’s dissolved.

Let it cool until firm.

Whip the whipping cream until stiff, then whip in the eggnog custard.

Pour the mousse into the glasses and top with a square of Lindt.

Refrigerate until needed.

The perfect way to end off a great year and make way for an exciting new one!

Enjoy! x
