Well, not really. According to dictionary.com, nogging is "masonry, as bricks, used to fill the spaces between studs or other framing members."
...So not anything like nogging at all. A bit like egg nog though... without the eggs. In my book, that just makes it nog. The dictionary, of course, disagrees with me, and says that nog either contains eggs or is beer. This drink fits neither of those descriptions, but I assure you that it's mighty tasty anyway.
Eggless Nog with White Chocolate
- 1 Tablespoon Cream
- 1 Tablespoon Maple Syrup
- 1 teaspoon Cornstarch
- ¼ cups High-quality White Chocolate Chips
- 1 dash Nutmeg
- 1-½ cup Milk
In a large mug, combine cream, maple syrup, and cornstarch, stirring to combine. When the mixture is smooth, add the white chocolate chips. Microwave on high for 15 second increments (stirring between each increment) until the white chocolate chips have softened. Stir until smooth. Add the nutmeg and then stir in milk, a bit at a time, until the mug is as full as you like – mine holds about a cup and a half.
Microwave on high for 2 minutes or until it’s heated to your liking. Garnish with whipped cream and more nutmeg, if desired. Consume immediately!
NOTES: Ingredients are given for one large mug. If you’re just making this for yourself or for you and a friend, the microwave is the way to go. If you’re making a larger batch, you will probably want to do this on the stove. The basic instructions are the same, just combine the ingredients in an appropriately-sized pot instead of the individual mugs and be sure to whisk constantly.
