Eggnog is one of those love-it or hate-it things that’s pretty divided into those two categories. Some people get SO excited for the holidays because of eggnog, and others cringe at the thought of it. And while I wish I could commit to a side, I’m honestly in the middle.

Sometimes, I crave eggnog and the sweetness it brings. It’s just so reminiscent of the holiday season and gets me in the spirit. Other times I can’t stand the thought of drinking it since it is so sweet. But despite being divided on the drink, I was not so picky about these cookies! In fact, I couldn’t keep my hands off of them; they’re just so dang delicious!

I get that baking cookies is probably one of the last things you want to do during the hustle and bustle of the holidays, but I guarantee you will adore these cookies! The buttery, sweet aroma that wafts through your house as they bake is simply intoxicating… and I absolutely love the festive touch of a healthy dunk in Vanilla CandiQuik paired with bright, cheerful holly berry sprinkles. If you haven’t done a cookie exchange or gift platter yet, these are sure to be a huge hit!

Now… serving these Eggnog Spice Cookies with eggnog? That depends on what side you’re on :)

Eggnog Spice Cookies
Sweet and buttery eggnog cookies are lightly spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg and rum extract for a festive treat! Dip in Vanilla Candiquik and top with sprinkles for an added Christmas-y touch.
Recipe type: Cookies
Serves: 24
  • 1 box white cake mix
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup melted butter
  • 2 tsp rum extract
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground nutmeg
  • Pinch ginger
  • ½ pkg Vanilla CandiQuik
  • Holiday sprinkles (I used holly berry ones, but anything festive will work!)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with silicone liners or spray the sheets lightly with cooking spray; set aside. Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine the cake mix, egg, melted butter, rum extract, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger with a spoon until blended and a soft dough has formed.
  2. Portion the dough into Tablespoon-sized balls and place on the prepared baking sheets about 1-2" apart. Bake for approx. 8-10 minutes, rotating pans halfway through baking time, until cookies are golden brown and appear just about set. Do not over-bake as the cookies will continue to cook slightly as they rest. Allow cookies to cool completely on the baking sheets.
  3. Once cookies are cool, melt your Vanilla CandiQuik according to package directions. Dip each cookie half into the Vanilla CandiQuik and return the cookie to the baking sheet; immediately sprinkle with the holiday sprinkles. Allow the cookies to set before serving or packaging.
