There's no wrong way to have eggnog!

You can finally have your eggnog and eat it too, because these streusel-topped treats are eggnog in muffin form! Filled with sugar, spice, and everything nice (AKA our free range butter and eggs), they're the perfect addition to your cozy afternoon on the couch with a fuzzy blanket and a good book. Even better, have the kids to help stir the batter and form the cinnamon streusel crumbs so that you can get into the holiday spirit as family.

To make the streusel

  1. Stir together dry streusel ingredients until well blended.
  2. Add 3 tablespoons melted butter and blend with a fork until uniform coarse crumbs form. If the streusel seems a little dry and won't clump up, you can add extra melted butter a teaspoon at a time until those coarse crumbs form. Set aside.

To make the muffins

  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with cupcake papers.
  2. Scale dry muffin ingredients together and whisk to fully blend.
  3. Add eggnog, eggs, vanilla, and 1/2 cup melted butter last, and mix until smooth and well combined.
  4. Evenly divide batter between all 12 muffin cups.
  5. Using your hands, squeeze streusel crumbs together, then loosely break them up while sprinkling generously over each cup of batter.
  6. Bake for 16-18 minutes until centers feel dry and set when gently pressed.
  7. Allow muffins to cool or enjoy warm!

Nellie's Notes

In a rush? Simply skip the streusel altogether, mix up the batter as directed, and bake for a slightly shorter time of 15-17 minutes.
