Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 (1 ounce) squares premium white baking chocolate (we tested with Baker's)
  • 12 cup sifted powdered sugar
  • 14 cup butter, softened
  • 14 cup refrigerated eggnog
  • 2 tablespoons dark rum
  • 14 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 12 cup finely chopped pecans, toasted
  • 6 ounces vanilla candy coating


  1. Melt white chocolate in a glass bowl. Add powdered sugar, butter, and eggnog; stir gently until mixture is smooth.
  2. Add rum and nutmeg, stirring just until blended. Cover and freeze at least 2 hours.
  3. Let truffle mixture stand at room temperature 1 to 2 minutes to soften, if necessary.
  4. 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.
  5. Melt candy coating according to package directions. Remove truffles from freezer; reshape into balls, if necessary.
  6. Using two forks, quickly dip each truffle into melted coating. Place on wax paper to harden. Store truffles in freezer up to one week.
