Caramel Eggnog Syrup

Tags: ,

As promised here is the recipe for my Caramel Eggnog Syrup that goes with my Chocolate Eggnog Baby Pancakes. This one is not to be missed. It is good beyond measure. Perfect for the Holidays and good enough to drink with a straw, this will bring smiles to the whole family.

Enjoy friends!

Here are your ingredients. Nice and simple. That’s sugar in the measuring cup.

Pour your eggnog into a saucepan over medium heat.

Add the sugar and butter to the saucepan as well.

Cook and stir until mixture bubbles like this 🙂

Once bubbly, add baking soda and vanilla stirring. Syrup will foam up a bit. Don’t freak out, lol!


Let syrup cool for about 5 minutes and it will thicken and reduce back down.

Here you have my Caramel Eggnog Syrup. Make it….you won’t be sorry.


Caramel Eggnog Syrup


  • 1 stick/1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup eggnog
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  1. Place butter, sugar and eggnog into a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir until bubbly, about 3-5 minutes. Once bubbly add baking soda and vanilla stirring. Syrup will foam up doubling it’s size. Remove from heat and let cool for 5 minutes stirring occasionally. Transfer to a serving dish. Drizzle over pancakes 🙂

    Hello, this looks fab. Im hoping I can get eggnog in the UK supermarkets to make this. Once made, how long will it last for, unopened and opened?? Im thinking this would be nice in coffee too. 🙂

      Hi Nicola, it lasts covered in the refrigerator for 3 or 4 days. It’s not as thick once reheated, but still delicious 🙂

    This looks like the greatest thing that ever existed. I think I picked the worst week ever to start weight watchers 🙁

    Okay, so I was looking at the carton of eggnog a couple of days ago and wondering if I could make a caramel buttermilk syrup, but out of eggnog. Ponder no more! It can be done! And I think maybe it NEEDS to be done, stat. 🙂

    Can it be stored? If yes, than how : in the fridge or on the shelve? I love eggnog and would love to preserve it for a while in this beautiful delish way.:))))
