  1. Melt 8 ounces of the chocolate as directed on package. Beat cream cheese, confectioners sugar, nutmeg and extract in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed mixer until well blended and smooth. Add melted chocolate; beat until well mixed. Cover. Refrigerate at least 4 hours or until firm.
  2. Shape into 24 (about 3/4-inch) balls. Place on wax paper-lined tray. Refrigerate until ready to dip.
  3. Coat only 12 truffles at a time. Melt 4 ounces of the remaining chocolate in small microwaveable bowl on MEDIUM (50% power) 1 1/2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute. Using a fork, dip 1 truffle at a time into the melted chocolate. Tap back of fork 2 or 3 times against edge of dish to allow excess chocolate to drip off. Place truffles on wax paper-lined tray. (If there are any bald spots on truffle, cover with melted chocolate that remains on the fork.) Sprinkle truffles with nutmeg. Repeat with remaining 4 ounces chocolate and remaining truffles.
  4. Refrigerate 1 hour or until chocolate is set. Store truffles between layers of wax paper in airtight container in refrigerator up to 1 week.


  • Test Kitchen Tip: When dipping the truffles, do so in 2 batches (as directed above in Step 3) as the coldness of the truffles may cause the melted chocolate to harden.

I only made one batch of these truffles because I'm not really a fan of white chocolate. But that was a big mistake. They really do remind me of eggnog, and they're melt-in-your mouth good. I su...

Really good,very mild eggnog flavor. Would need to add to recipe to make it a five, maybe more rom and nutmeg.

These turned out REALLY good! Make sure you chill them. A bit of effort, but well worth it! These were hard to keep around-everyone kept sneaking them!

I made these for a holiday party. They not only taste great but are very visually appealing. I found the mix too soft, but froze it and tried my best. They kind of froze to the fork once the ...
