Rum Eggnog Sauce

READY IN: 5mins
Top Review by HisPixie

I wanted to like this but it was only OK. Once I added the eggnog, the "poof" in the whipping cream disappeared. I also think the quality of the eggnog can be important and I only had basic store-brand eggnog. I added 3 TBL of sugar and 1 tsp of vanilla in an attempt to bump up the taste. I had so-so flavored, runny sauce. :( Made for My 3 Chefs Challenge, Nov. 2009
