Eggnog Truffles

Eggnog Truffles, smooth eggnog and white chocolate centers, would be perfect as a Christmas/hostess gift!

Ready for more eggnog? I promise this is the last one (this week anyways). I apologize to those who are haters, but for people like me, who LOVE the stuff, we can only enjoy this treat for a limited time during the year (unless you make it yourself, but no thanks).

So today I bring you eggnog truffles. Oh yes. They taste like eggnog, creamy delicious eggnog. And how pretty in a bowl. Like most truffle recipes, they are easy to make, just need a little patience while you wait for the different steps to set up!

You CAN do this! You MUST do this! Enjoy!

Eggnog Truffles

Rating: 51

Prep Time: 3 hours

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 60 truffles


  • 2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup eggnog
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 tsp rum flavoring
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 cup marshmallow cream
  • 3 cup white chocolate morsels
  • 2-16oz pkgs vanilla candy coating
  • 1 Tbsp nutmeg, for garnish


  1. In large pot, bring sugar, eggnog and butter to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes (rolling boil). Remove from heat and mix in rum flavoring and 1 tsp nutmeg.
  2. Pour mixture into a mixing bowl (or use an immersion blender). Add in marshmallow cream and white chocolate morsels. Blend until completely melted and incorporated (took about 1 1/2-2 minutes). Pour into a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
  3. When set, remove by lifting parchment out of pan and lay on cutting board. Cut into bite size pieces. Roll each piece into a ball and return to cookie sheet. When all truffles have been rolled, put in freezer for one hour.
  4. Melt vanilla candy coating (according to package directions) and put in a deep glass or bowl. Using a toothpick, dip each truffle into melted chocolate, tapping the excess off. Set onto parchment lined cookie sheet. Immediately sprinkle with a tiny pinch of nutmeg. Repeat for remaining truffles. Allow to set about half an hour in refrigerator.
  5. Serve cold and enjoy!

    My hero!! I am in all sorts of an eggnog kick. I started off my Egg-nogging with a batch of Egg Nog Marshmallows. They are a bit too addicting. And it’s never a bad thing!! ~Megan

    Does it taste better if you use real rum vs the rum flavoring? Or can you not tell a big difference?

  31. posted Dec 12, 2011 at 7:47 pm

    I’ll let you know about the real rum. That’s what I’ll be using.

    These sound soooo good! I have been making eggnog treats as well. I have a little leftover and wasn’t sure what I would do with it. I don’t drink eggnog. I think this will be what I make with my leftovers!!

    I made these truffles and they were gone in a flash. The best tasting truffles ever. Made them for the holidays and will make them again when I can purchase eggnog.

    Do they have to be kept refrigerate? Will they melt? I would like to incorporate these into a yummy treat package for my in-laws but it won’t be refrigerated (because food is easier than presents when they have everything!).
