Hello and happy December! It’s that time of year again for all eggnog lovers! And Mr. Hungry is definitely the ultimate eggnog lover! That’s why I was so excited to partner with Shamrock Farms to use their Traditional Eggnog, which features a custom blend of spices for the creamiest premium taste, a holiday favorite in our house for sure! Plus, I know I’ve said it before, but I love that they never add artificial growth hormones, ever.
Did you know that Shamrock Farms Eggnog is a small-batch recipe perfected over three generations? And that it’s made from pure, fresh Shamrock Farms milk and cream from one of their family of local farms?
It’s also available in two sizes for the traditional eggnog, both 12 and 32 oz. And for those who want a lighter version, Shamrock Farms Eggnog Light is available in a 32 oz size. You can use traditional OR the light to make these donuts, I tested both, and they were both delicious!

Now, let’s make some delicious baked eggnog donuts, shall we?
This recipe is sooooooo easy to make. Combine your dry ingredients first, then your wet ingredients, then mix it all! To fill the donut pan (I have a silicone donut pan, but you can use a non-stick as well), I put the batter in a ziplock bag and then cut off the corner and piped it into the donut holes. You could also use a real piping bag or spoon it in.
I didn’t take any pictures of making the glaze, but that’s super easy as well. Just mix a couple of tablespoons of Shamrock Farms Eggnog with powdered sugar. Now, I’ll let you in on a little secret. I double dipped these donuts! That’s right, I did it, and I’m not sorry! I dipped them once, add sprinkles, let them set, and then did it again.
I only did that because my first batch of frosting came out a little thin, and I wanted it to be bright white! Mr. Hungry liked it dipped once, thought the double-dip was a little too sweet. I say there is no such thing as too sweet, but then again, frosting is a favorite dessert of mine. You can also adjust the original glaze’s thickness by adding more eggnog to thin it out or more powdered sugar to thicken it up. Your choice!
Make sure to store these in the refrigerator since the glaze contains unbaked pure fresh Shamrock Farms Traditional Eggnog!
