Whip cream in a large bowl until stiff peaks form, set aside.

In a separate large bowl add mascarpone, eggnog, vanilla and nutmeg. Beat until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Gently fold whipped cream into mascarpone mixture. Set aside.

In a separate medium bowl whisk egg nog, coffee and rum together.

To assemble, dip lady fingers one at a time into your coffee and eggnog mixture and make a single layer in the bottom of your baking dish, approximately 20 cookies in total.

Spread half of your mascarpone cream mixture on top of the lady fingers.  Grate over 1 oz of dark chocolate. Repeat dipping and layering with remaining 20 ladyfingers. Cover with remaining mascarpone mixture. Mix together cocoa powder and cinnamon in a small bowl and sift overtop using a fine mesh strainer.

Finish by grating or making curls of white chocolate to sprinkle over top. Then dip cranberries in corn syrup. Shake off any excess syrup and then dip in white sugar. Garnish any way you desire with cranberries and mint. Chill until ready to serve, enjoy!

Servings: Makes 10-12 servings
