Eggnog Truffles

I’m not sure why I love egg nog so much, but I really look forward to it all year long! Maybe it’s because they make you wait all year to have it!

The other day I went to a potluck Christmas party, and my friend brought these truffles. Seriously, I could have died and gone straight to heaven. They are like big, tasty glass of eggnog with every bite! I begged her for the recipe, and she finally let me have it – and she told me I could share it with you!

  • 1 lb (16-oz) white chocolate, divided (I used bakers chocolate)
  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon imitation rum extract


  1. In a small bowl, cream together cream cheese, powdered sugar, nutmeg, and rum extract.
  2. In a microwave safe bowl, melt 1/2 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.

  1. I'm having difficulties rolling these into balls as well. Very sticky. I've had them in the fridge for 4 or 5 hours now because I found 2 wasn't enough and they're still very sticky. I'm now trying to freeze the mixture to see if that helps but I think the measurements may need to be tweaked for next time.
