  1. This looks freaking delicious Nicole, and I don’t even like eggnog. I have family members who are obsessed though, so I need to make this for them. Seriously, one year my brother went on an “eggnog diet” in college. Lost 7 pounds before the holidays. Gained it all back and then some by drinking eggnog every single day, available through campus vending machines.

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Haha, eggnog diet. I think my little brother has been on that same diet before!

  2. Natasha Campbell says:

    Looks delish! If I make some as Christmas gifts, do you have any idea how long it will last?

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Hi Natasha. Unfortunately this caramel doesn’t last for very long. I would recommend it being used within a week. So, maybe not the best for gifts.
