Eggnog Frosting

Today I have the most AMAZING recipe for eggnog frosting.

Eggnog frosting is so good when smeared over the top of a gingerbread cookie.  I’ve put it on gingerbread cookies, cupcakes, and a spoon. Little fingers may have swiped samples when I had my back turned. It’s way over the top and sends buttercream frosting packing. (Although white chocolate buttercream is a close second).

This frosting tastes absolutely incredible and brings a whole new dimension to traditional buttercream frosting. Try it out this holiday season!

Eggnog Frosting


  • 2 tbsp butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup eggnog
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • Additional eggnog for thinning if needed


  1. In a mixing bowl, stir together all ingredients on low speed until blended. Turn mixer to medium and whip for 2-3 minutes until light and fluffy. Add additional eggnog one tablespoon at a time for thinning if needed. Frosting will frost 12 cupcakes or 24 cookies.
