Long considered a traditional Christmas beverage, eggnog is blended with chocolate and rum and then divided into two separate fillings to create this elegantly swirled pie recipe.


Chocolate Eggnog Swirl Pie
Recipe from 
Servings: 8 servings
Prep Time: 25 mins
Total Time: 6 hrs 37 mins
     cup  all-purpose flour
    3/4  cup  finely chopped nuts
    1/4  cup  packed brown sugar
     ounce  semisweet chocolate, grated
    1/3  cup  butter, melted
     envelope  unflavored gelatin
    1/4  cup  cold water
    1/2  cup  granulated sugar
     tablespoons  cornstarch
     cups  dairy or canned eggnog
    1-1/2  ounces  semisweet chocolate, melted
     tablespoons  rum or 1/2 teaspoon rum extract
     cup  whipping cream, whipped
        Grated fresh nutmeg (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. For crust: In a medium bowl, combine flour, nuts, brown sugar, and grated chocolate. Stir in melted butter. Press mixture onto the bottom and up the side of a deep-dish 9- or 10-inch pie pan or plate. Bake for 12 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
For filling: In a small bowl, stir gelatin into the cold water; set aside. In a medium saucepan, combine granulated sugar and cornstarch. Stir in eggnog. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Stir in gelatin mixture until dissolved.
Divide filling into two equal portions. To one portion, add melted chocolate; mix well. To the other portion, add rum; mix well. Cover surfaces of both fillings with plastic wrap; cool for 2 hours.
Fold whipped cream into the rum filling; spoon into crust. Top with the chocolate filling. Using a table knife or narrow metal spatula, gently swirl the chocolate filling into the rum filling to marble. Chill for 4 to 24 hours. If desired, sprinkle lightly with grated nutmeg. Makes 8 servings.
