The freezing steps are worth it for the delicious results you get with these truffles. They're better than drinking homemade eggnog.
Yield: 2 dozen
- 8 (1-ounce) squares premium white chocolate (we tested with Baker's)
- 1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 1/4 cup refrigerated eggnog
- 2 tablespoons dark rum
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans, toasted
- 6 ounces vanilla-flavored candy coating
- Melt white chocolate in a glass bowl according to package directions. Add powdered sugar, butter, and eggnog; stir gently until mixture is smooth. Add rum and nutmeg, stirring just until blended. Cover and freeze at least 2 hours.
- Let truffle mixture stand at room temperature 1 to 2 minutes to soften, if necessary. Using 2 small spoons, shape mixture into 1" balls. Quickly roll in pecans. Place on a wax paper-lined jellyroll pan; cover and freeze until firm.
- Melt candy coating according to package directions. Remove truffles from freezer; reshape into balls, if necessary. Using two forks, quickly dip each truffle into melted coating. Place on wax paper to harden. Store truffles in freezer up to one week.
