    Things To Grab

    • Large saucepan
    • Large bowl
    • Whisk
    • Candy thermometer
    • Fine-mesh sieve
    • Extra-large bowl or pitcher
    • 8-oz. glass mugs

    Directions

    1. In a large saucepan, combine milk, vanilla extract, instant coffee, and cinnamon. Bring to boiling, whisking occasionally.

    2. In a large bowl, whisk together egg yolks and sugar until thoroughly combined. Slowly add milk mixture to eggs whisking vigorously. Pour mixture back into saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly until mixture reaches at least 165 degrees and coats the back of the spoon, about 5 minutes.

    3. Remove saucepan from heat; add milk chocolate chips. Stir until completely incorporated and smooth. Stir in half-and-half and brandy, if using. Strain mixture though a fine-mesh sieve into an extra-large bowl or pitcher. Cover and chill at least 4 hours or up to 24 hours.

    4. Before serving, dip an 8-oz. glass mug in chocolate syrup and line the rim with chocolate covered espresso beans and chocolate sprinkles, if desired. Ladle 6-oz. of eggnog into each mug and garnish with a dollop of frozen whipped topping, if desired.
