Eggnog Truffles

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

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

Yield: 6 dozen

Eggnog Truffles


  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup eggnog
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp rum flavoring
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 cup marshmallow cream
  • 3 cups 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.
  5. Immediately sprinkle with a tiny pinch of nutmeg. Repeat for remaining truffles. Allow to set about half an hour in refrigerator. Serve cold and enjoy!


  • I like to use Ghirardelli white chocolate wafers for the vanilla candy coating.

  1. Made these for Christmas, they were very good. The only trouble I had was the candy coating clumping up, so I would recommend people to keep half of the balls in the fridge while you do the first batch of dipping to prevent the truffle from breaking off into the melted candy coating (which causes it to clump). Anyhow, great recipe, I’ll be posting it to my blog soon. Take care.

  2. 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!).


  3. These turned out wonderfully! I made them for a holiday cookie exchange and won! Very impressive recipe! Thank you!

  14. i’m not generally an eggnog fan but i tried one of these when michael brought them into the office last week and all i could say was “oh my yum.”

  15. These look wonderful. I love eggnog and even freeze it to use throughout the year. I though I was following you by email, but I guess not. Well, I am now. Thanks for sharing.

  16. These look so good!! I just wish you could get egg nog in this country! I think I’ll make these when I come over to the States for Xmas!!

  17. 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

  18. I have a weakness for eggnog during the holidays and you’ve given me even more reasons to indulge in this annual treat. 🙂 Gorgeous photos, too!

  19. I think you need me to take those off your hands!!! Remember when you asked me to be your workout buddy? I am just thinking of you:-) Fine! I’m thinking of me too! And I need Eggnog Truffles today!!!!
