In 36 hours I plan to have a decorated tree, stockings hung, wreath on the door, and at least 45 million pictures on my iPhone of two little babes surrounded by twinkle lights. #thankyoupinterest  I will be retrieving the rest of my winter clothes from the garage pronto because I hear it is supposed to snow back home. Prettttty much every day for the next week in fact.

I also plan to make a batch of these hot fudge stuffed chocolate chip cookies, this salted caramel shortbread (ohmagosh YES.) and another loaf of that mouthwatering gingerbread with cream cheese frosting.

I NEED.

Ingredients

  • 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)

Instructions

  1. 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.

  2. Shape mixture into 1-inch balls and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Melt remaining chocolate chips.

  3. 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.

  4. Chill for 30 minutes. Serve immediately or store chilled in an airtight container up to 1 week.

Recipe Notes

For decorating, allow dipped truffles to chill at least 15 minutes, then drizzle extra chocolate across the truffles in any design you wish. Sprinkle with edible glitter/colored sugar if desired. Return to fridge for at least 15 minutes longer or until chocolate is set.

This looks like a very elegant recipe and I am going to give it a try. I would suggest that the photo might “read” better if you had a darker background. Seems to me that the truffles just blend into the background and don’t show how beautiful that really are.

Wow, these could get me into some serious trouble! YUM!

These truffles look perfect, exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!

these look amazing!

Hi again, Tiffany 🙂
Here’s a tip. After “dough” is rolled into balls, it’s a good idea to put them in fridge while the other chocolate is melting. Otherwise, the balls get too soft and will not stay on the fork or toothpick. Just a head’s up.
Have a great day and stay warm! 😉
Best regards, Sharon

LOVE eggnog! These look so decadent and delicious!!

Could you use almond bark as a substitute for the white chocolate in the filling and outside coating? I have extra laying around, but didn’t know if you had tried it. Thanks!
