Prep Time
Total Time
36 candies


1/3 cup
prepared eggnog
1/4 cup
Land O Lakes® Butter
1/2 teaspoon
rum flavoring
1/4 teaspoon
ground nutmeg
1 (12-ounce) package (2 cups)
milk chocolate chips
Powdered sugar
12 ounces
vanilla-flavored candy coating (almond bark)
Ground nutmeg, if desired


  1. Line large baking sheet with waxed paper; set aside.
  2. Combine eggnog, butter, rum flavoring and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat 4-5 minutes or until butter is melted. Add chocolate chips; continue cooking, stirring constantly, 2-3 minutes or until chips are melted and mixture is smooth. Cover; refrigerate at least 2 hours or until firm.
  3. Dust hands with powdered sugar. Shape mixture, working quickly, 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 at least 1 hour until firm.
  4. Melt candy coating in deep 1-quart saucepan over low heat; stir 8-10 minutes or until smooth. Remove from heat; cool 10 minutes.
  5. Place 1 truffle at a time into candy coating. Coat truffle, using small spoon; 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 into paper or foil candy cups.
  6. Store refrigerated in container with tight-fitting lid up to 2 weeks.

Recipe Tips

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

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

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

- 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!
