Fabulous recipe. I didn't have dark rum so I used brandy instead...I'm a Wisconsin girl! ALso used plenty of nutmeg to bring out the eggnog flavors. I hope they last until the holidays since I don't have time to make another batch!

got a question for you? if you have a package of premixed eggnog powdered stuff can you use it in this recipe instead of all the ingredients and how would you do it? i have some leftover eggnog and want to use it up besides the pouch of eggnog premixed to make some truffles so any advice on how to go about it?

Are Melting Chips the same as Baking Cips?

From the taste of these wonderful candies you would never guess they do not have eggnog.

The combination of rum, nutmeg and vanilla turn these into a yummy little bite of eggnog heaven.
