These are a perfect truffle for the holidays. They taste like egg nog, even though there the recipe does not call for any egg nog.
Recipe from: Mom's Crazy Cooking
1/2 pound white melting chocolate
4 ounces (1/2 package) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
1/4 tsp nutmeg, extra for sprinkle
1/4 tsp Rum Extract
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.
Shape into 24 (about 3/4-inch) balls. Place on wax paper-lined tray. Refrigerate until ready to dip.
Melt white chocolate in small microwavable bowl for 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. Sprinkle truffles with nutmeg.
Refrigerate 1 hour or until chocolate is set. Store truffles between layers of wax paper in airtight container in refrigerator up to 1 week.
