Eggnog Truffle Cups

“If you like homemade eggnog, you'll love these elegant truffle cups,” Terrie Malsom, Vermillion, South Dakota, suggests a tasty way to say “cheers” to the holidays. To save time, use small premade chocolate cups.
  • Total Time
    Prep: 30 min. + freezing
  • Makes
    3 dozen


  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons shortening
  • 6 tablespoons eggnog
  • 1 package (10 to 12 ounces) white baking chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon rum extract
  • 1/4 to 3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg


  • In a microwave, melt semisweet chips and shortening; stir until smooth. Using a narrow pastry brush, brush the inside of 1-in. foil candy liners with 1/2 teaspoon melted chocolate. Freeze for 45 minutes or until firm.
  • Using 1/4 teaspoon chocolate mixture for each cup, brush on another layer of chocolate. Freeze until firm.
  • In a small saucepan, bring eggnog to a boil over low heat. Remove from the heat; stir in white baking chips until melted. Stir in extract. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until filling begins to set.
  • Spoon or pipe 1-1/2 teaspoons filling into each cup. Freeze until firm. Carefully remove and discard foil cups. Cover and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Just before serving, sprinkle with nutmeg.

    I love this recipe! I use it every year and my family begs for them! I could not find my cook been they came in and was so very excited to find the recipe! The only thing I change is I use a present candy mold to make them more festive!

    These were a huge hit... However had trouble with putting the chocolate in the candy foils... The foils kept collapsing... So I ended up using the silicone mini muffin cups... Which made it larger than it was suppose to be... But so worth the effort... By request I am making it again this year...
