No Bake Eggnog Cookie Truffles
I have been loving truffles this season! After making eggnog cookies the other day, I was curious if I could turn those same flavors into a truffle. In the end, I ended up using eggnog in an adapted version of my snickerdoodle cookie balls. The only hiccup I ran into was I tried mixing eggnog and white chocolate together for the coating around the truffles and it worked really badly so I suggest sticking to just using white chocolate as the coating. If you want more eggnog, you could mix 1/2 cup powdered sugar and a few tablespoons of eggnog into a thick icing and drizzle it on top of the white chocolate coating. These truffles are great to make and add to a holiday cookie tray or just to enjoy at home with a glass of eggnog.
Common Questions About Making Eggnog Truffles
Can I use chocolate instead of white chocolate?
You sure can! You could also roll them in a mix of chocolate and white chocolate or even just drizzle them with chocolate.
Can I freeze the truffles?
Yes, freezing the truffles until you are ready to serve them works great.
What can I decorate eggnog truffles with?
Sprinkles or just a little dusting of nutmeg or cinnamon are great garnishes but additionally, you could always just leave them plain too!
Can I use homemade eggnog?
Yes! I use my homemade eggnog recipe for these truffles every time I make them.
