Ingredients

1/3 cup prepared eggnog
1/2 teaspoon rum flavoring
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 (11.5-ounce) package (2 cups) milk chocolate chips
Powdered sugar

12 ounces vanilla-flavored candy coating (almond bark)
Ground nutmeg, if desired

Directions

Line large baking sheet with waxed paper; set aside.

Combine eggnog, butter, rum flavoring and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat until butter is melted (4 to 5 minutes). Add chocolate chips; continue cooking, stirring constantly, until chips are melted and mixture is smooth (2 to 3 minutes). Cover; refrigerate until firm (at least 2 hours).

Dust hands with powdered sugar. Working quickly, shape mixture into 1-inch balls. (Truffle mixture will be soft. Repeat dusting hands with powdered sugar to make shaping easier, if necessary.) Place balls onto prepared baking sheet; refrigerate until firm (at least 1 hour).

Meanwhile melt candy coating in deep 1-quart saucepan over low heat; stir until smooth (8 to 10 minutes). Remove from heat; cool 10 minutes.

Place 1 truffle at a time into candy coating. Use small spoon to coat truffle; immediately remove and place onto waxed paper. (Work quickly so truffles do not melt.) Sprinkle with nutmeg, if desired. Repeat with remaining truffles. Let cool 30 minutes. Place truffles in paper or foil candy cups.

Store refrigerated in container with tight-fitting lid up to 2 weeks.

Recipe Tip

When placing dipped truffle onto waxed paper, swirl the top to create a decorative design on truffle.

Recipe Tip
Spiral candy forks are available at cake and candy decorating stores and are made for dipping candies.

Recipe Tip
Stir together 1/2 cup powdered sugar and 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg in small bowl. Roll truffles in powdered sugar mixture rather than dipping in candy coating.

Recipe Tip
Do not substitute low fat eggnog for regular eggnog in this recipe. Truffles are meant to be rich and creamy.

I am making these again for the third Christmas this year. They are so delicious--love the nutmeg, rum and milk chocolate combo--and are becoming a tradition. I also give them as teacher gifts.
I made these for the first time last year and am planning to make them again today....they were very easy to make, turned out beautifully, and taste wonderful! I made an assortment of 6 truffles, and these were the ones that were most people's favorites! Great recipe : Thank you!
