I found this recipe in Katie’s Good Things Catered blog. They just looked too good not to try! They are absolutely delicious and fairly easy to make. My co-workers are going to love getting these for Christmas! Though, I must have made my ‘balls’ (that’s for you Kristin) too big b/c I only got 66, and I made a double batch. Oh well!
14 oz. white candy melts
1/3 c. eggnog (must be the full fat kind)
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp freshly ground nutmeg
splash good bourbon
6 oz. dark chocolate
decorations of choice
In large (shallow and wide) bowl over pan of boiling water over medium low heat, combine white chocolate, eggnog, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir until completely melted and smooth. Remove from heat, add bourbon, stir well to incorporate and place bowl in the fridge overnight (or until completely firmed, this will depend on temperature of fridge and deepness of bowl you placed mixture in).
Remove bowl from fridge and roll 1 tsp. of truffle filling into balls. Place formed balls onto wax paper lined baking sheet and place in freezer.
Meanwhile, melt dark chocolate, stirring until smooth. I had to add a tiny big of vegetable oil to my chocolate b/c it was too thick and wasn’t giving me the smooth pretty truffle I was after.
Remove truffles from freezer, roll to make sure evenness then coat in chocolate and sprinkle with decoration.
Place finished truffle back onto wax paper lined baking tray and repeat with remaining truffles. Let stand for 1 hour or until completely dry and serve or package in airtight container for up to a week.
Yields about 50 truffles.
