Eggnog Truffles

I don’t know what it is about Eggnog that I love so much. I look forward to Eggnog ALL YEAR long, I swear I really do. When the lovely ladies over at Six Sisters Stuff shared this recipe for Eggnog Truffles I had died and went straight to heaven. I have made these in my Christmas Cookie selection for the last few years.

These delicious truffles taste just like a big glass of eggnog! They are so soft and yummy!
Ingredients
  • 1 lb (16-oz) white chocolate, divided (I used bakers chocolate)
  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon imitation rum extract
Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, cream together cream cheese, powdered sugar, nutmeg, and rum extract.
  2. In a microwave safe bowl, melt ½ lb (8 oz) of the white chocolate for 30 seconds. Remove from microwave, stir, and repeat in 30 second intervals until the chocolate is completely smooth.
  3. Add the chocolate mixture to the cream cheese mixture and beat until smooth.
  4. Refrigerate for about 2 hours or until chilled and slightly more firm.
  5. Melt the remaining chocolate.
  6. Remove the cream cheese and chocolate mixture from the fridge, and roll into one-inch balls. Roll each ball in the white chocolate, and place on a wax-paper lined cookie sheet.
Notes
(Optional) You can sprinkle the top with nutmeg as a garnish
