eggnog truffles

eggnog truffles~ bite sized morsels of holiday bliss!

Mmmm, eggnog. Some people dislike it (like my hubby) some people love it, me personally? –  it’s like drinking melted ice cream. Mmmm.

This recipe is for y’all that would rather eat it and not drink it.

The center literally melts in your mouth. I need to go eat one but it’s 5:42am. I don’t think my belly would agree with a truffle this early. Maybe at noon.

Hey, did I mention that this was a middle of the night recipe? Yep. Lack of sleep is genius sometimes.Except the next day at 3:30 in the afternoon, you know when you wish you had an energy drink – but you’re too tired to go buy one? I guess I should stock up on my candy cane green tea this time of year. Red Bulls make me spastic.

The “hardest” part about this recipe is the dipping- a few tips:

use a spoon to gently roll the ball in the coating, and then transfer it to a drying sheet using a fork. Add the sprinkles quickly- while the coating is still wet.

Store them in the refrigerator, unless you live in an igloo.

Enjoy!
