Eggnog Snickerdoodle Blondies

by Erin

Snickerdoodles are great but have you had eggnog snickerdoodle blondies? Perfectly dressed up for the holidays or just to enjoy all winter long.

It is post PhD graduation week, and a short week at that with only 3 days left before I no longer have a “work” to go to. I’ll be whisked away for the holidays and return for just one last month in Memphis before packing up and moving in with family.

Hopefully with the new year will come responses to all the jobs I have applied to but have yet to hear from. I am really excited/anxious to see where I end up next!

Eggnog Snickerdoodle Blondie Bars

But on to these bars. After I became addicted to the snickerdoodle blondies that Alex sent me last month, I decided to make my own with eggnog in order to continue my eggnog streak.

These bars turned out to be just as magical as the traditional version with some added holiday spirit, making them a great treat to make for your upcoming holiday parties (or a way to use up any leftover eggnog).

Speaking of, here are some other great recipes that use up eggnog:

This was a complete waste of ingredients. Even more unfortunate was that I made 2 batches and baked them off at the same time. It appeared that there was too much sugar and it was just a mess. Do not make this recipe!

Mark, I am terribly sorry. After double checking the recipe it is completely my fault. There was in fact too much sugar as it should have been 1 cup and not 2 of brown sugar. I have fixed this in the ingredient list for the future. Again I apologize for having you waste ingredients.

wow! I love that you adapted these for egg nog lovers! These blondies were really quite addicting and now you just made a brand new version!

I have done zero things with eggnog this year. And am feeling slightly guilty about it. Especially after seeing these. Good thing there’s still time to pick some up!

Tracey December 16, 2013 - 7:46 pm

I adore snickerdoodle blondies, but you just took it to another level with the eggnog! These are happening as soon as I get to the store for more eggnog :) I’m so excited to see where your next chapter leads you!

So exciting that you’re almost done. I’ll tell you to savor it because I went right from my PhD to postdoc to my job. A little time off would have been nice to decompress :)
