Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter (226g)
  • 1 ½ cups white chocolate melted (9.3 oz / 262g)
  • ¾ cup eggnog (180ml)
  • 3 tablespoon rum
  • 2 vanilla beans* (or 2 teaspoon vanilla extract)

Coating

  • 2 ⅓ cups white chocolate melted (14.1 oz / 400g)

Instructions

  • With a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment beat butter on medium speed until soft for about 1-2 minutes. Add melted chocolate and mix until creamy for about 1 minute. Add eggnog and mix on low speed just until combined. Add rum and vanilla* and mix until well combined and smooth. Chill for about 15 minutes in the freezer until firm enough to scoop with an ice cream scoop. Level the back of the scoops with your hand by pushing slightly against it (watch also video above). Place scoops on a parchment paper layered sheet. Freeze for about 1 hour.  
  • Dip truffles in melted chocolate and let dry in the fridge for about 10-15 minutes. Sprinkle with nutmeg or cinnamon before serving if desired. Store leftovers in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks.

Notes

*First, cut off the straight end of the vanilla bean. Then place the tip of your sharp knife below the curled end and cut the vanilla bean through the middle of the bean lengthwise. Although you don't need to cut it all the way through, it's ok when you do so. Then open the vanilla bean and scrape out the flavorful seeds with the back of your knife. Just use the seeds.
