“I found these in the 2000 book Christmas with Southern Living - they are really good - and a good break from all the chocolate. Egg Nog lovers will love them. I know they got the thumbs up from my family of Egg Nog lovers. I put them on the holiday tray with Cookie Dough Truffles and AngieMe's Snow Balls (Oreo Truffles) - made a great presentation and all disappeared fast. Prep time does not include freezer/chill time.”
