During the festive season I often find that some of the best gifts to give are homemade ones, they let your loved ones know that you care about them and have taken the time to make them something special. However, they don’t need to know how quick and easy it is to whip up a box of white chocolate eggnog truffles. Lots of discount stores are stocking gift boxes at the moment and its a great time to stock up and get your homemade gifts made! Homemade gifts don’t have to break the bank, it’s more about the time and effort taken to make them.

These mouthwatering white chocolate eggnog truffles are the perfect way to show your loved ones how much they mean to you this Christmas. So simple and quick to make you have have several boxes whipped up in no time at all. 

These eggnog truffles use M&S eggnog cream but if you can’t get your hands on that or anything similar you can make your own eggnog! I don’t have a recipe for it but here’s one from Jamie Oliver, so you know its going to be good. And if you want to check out the M&S eggnog cream its available here.

Ingredients – for the truffles 

  1. 200g white chocolate, chopped 
  2. 100g unsalted butter
  3. 100ml double cream
  4. 75ml Eggnog cream, or any flavour of your choosing

Ingredients – for the coating

  1. 200g white chocolate, chopped
  2. Decoration of your choice, I used rose gold edible sprinkles but you can use anything you want. 

Method – for the truffles

  1. In a large microwave proof bowl, add the chocolate, butter and cream. Melt on high in 30 second blasts, checking after each to ensure nothing is burning.  This should take between 1min 30 to 2 min. 
  2. When everything has melted remove from the microwave and add the eggnog. 
  3. Using an electric mixer, whisk everything together on high for a few minutes until the mixture has combined. 
  4. Transfer the bowl to the fridge to cool for at least 2 hours until the mixture has set enough to spoon out and roll into balls. 
  5. Spoon out a teaspoon of mixture and roll into a ball using the palms of your hands, place onto a plate. Repeat until all the mixture has been used.
  6. (optional) Place the plate of truffles into the freezer for an hour, I find that this stops the truffles from melting as soon as they are dipped into warm melted chocolate. 
  7. Once the truffles are out of the freezer, melt the remaining 200g of chocolate as before.
  8. Dip each truffle into the chocolate and leave to cool on a sheet of baking paper, if the truffles are cold the chocolate should solidify quickly.  Sprinkle the truffles with your chosen decoration whilst the chocolate is still melted. 
  9. Either serve now or store in a cool place away from direct sunlight in a sealed container. 
  10. I like to pop mine straight into the gift boxes and leave until ready to gift.
