Winter holidays are a great reason to indulge in rich decadent food, and this eggnog fondue recipe definitely falls in this category!

Technically speaking, you'll be using the basic ingredients normally found in eggnog (milk, eggs, rum, vanilla, nutmeg, etc.) to bake your very own homemade pound cake, then you'll cut it up into bite-sized pieces and dip it into decadent Toblerone chocolate fondue.

No store bought eggnog required - unless you'd like to serve it as a drink along with this delicious dessert fondue!
