How to Make Eggnog Truffles

To make these Eggnog Truffles you just need a little time and a few simple ingredients. You’ll need:

  • Cream cheese
  • Powdered sugar
  • Rum extract
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg
  • White chocolate melts
  • Eggnog

containers of ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, rum extract, egg nog, cream cheese, confectioners sugar and candy melts

Step 1: Make Truffle Batter

First, combine cream cheese, powdered sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and rum extract in a medium mixing bowl.

Mix on medium until the mixture is nice and smooth. It should look like this:

Next, combine some white chocolate melts with eggnog in a microwave safe bowl.

Cook on 50% power for one minute to melt the chocolate. Stir and continue heating in 20-second intervals until the chocolate is fully melted.

Then, put the bowl in the freezer for 15 minutes to make the batter easier to shape.

Step 2: White Chocolate Coating

Roll the truffle dough into 1 inch balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Melt more white chocolate melts in the microwave.

Dip each truffle ball into the melted white chocolate and place back on the lined cookie sheet.  Immediately, sprinkle ground nutmeg on top of each eggnog truffle.

Leave the truffles on the baking sheet and place in the refrigerator for at least half an hour to make sure the white chocolate sets.

After the white chocolate coating has set, you can serve your Eggnog Truffles. If you won’t be serving them right away, transfer them to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator or freezer.

You can store them in the refrigerator for up to two weeks and in the freezer for up to two months. If you freeze them, just remove them from the freezer and let them sit at room temperature for a few hours before serving.

Ingredients
  

  • 12 oz bag Wilton white chocolate melts or white chocolate almond bark, divided
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons eggnog
  • 4 oz cream cheese 1/2 block, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon rum extract
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg plus more to garnish

Instructions
 

  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Add the softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and rum extract to a medium mixing bowl.  With an electric mixer, mix on medium speed until completely blended and smooth. Set aside.
  • Add 2/3 cup of the white chocolate melts and the eggnog to a microwave safe bowl.  Microwave at 50% power for one minute. Remove from microwave and stir until completely melted and smooth. Since all microwave wattages are different, you may have to microwave for an additional 20-30 seconds until the chocolate is completely melted. Fold the melted chocolate into the cream cheese mixture.
  • Place bowl in freezer for 15 minutes for easier handling.
  • Roll the truffle dough into 1 inch balls and place on the parchment lined cookie sheet.  Place in refrigerator for 15 minutes to allow to harden.  (Rolling the dough into balls with your hands will soften the dough quite a bit).
  • Melt the remaining white chocolate melts in the microwave at 50% power for one minute (or more, if needed). Remove from microwave and stir until completely melted.
  • Dip each truffle ball into the melted white chocolate and place back on the lined cookie sheet.  Immediately, sprinkle ground nutmeg on top of each eggnog truffle.
  • Chill for 30 minutes to allow the white chocolate coating to completely harden.

Notes

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator (for up to 2 weeks) or the freezer (for up to 2 months).
