Rich and creamy eggnog truffles – easy to make and perfect for holiday parties!
2 1/2 cup white chocolate chips, divided
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon rum flavoring (found with the extracts, optional)
additional white chocolate and edible glitter for decorating (optional)
Melt 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips. Add cream cheese, powdered sugar, nutmeg, rum flavoring and mix until smooth. Cover tightly and chill for 2-3 hours or until firm.
Shape mixture into 1-inch balls and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Melt remaining chocolate chips.
Stick a toothpick or fork into one of the balls, dip into the melted chocolate (you can use a spoon to help get the chocolate completely coated), tap off excess chocolate, and place back on baking sheet. Repeat with remaining balls.
Chill for 30 minutes. Serve immediately or store chilled in an airtight container up to 1 week.
