White Chocolate Eggnog Truffles
- 1 cup white chocolate
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter, chopped into cubes
- 3 tbsp heavy cream
- 40 drops Hedessent Eggnog Flavouring - available in Limited Edition Holiday Kit
- 15 drops Hedessent Almond Flavouring - available as a 60ml OR in the Limited Edition Holiday Kit
- Pinch salt
- 1 cup white chocolate candy coating wafers
- Coarse sugar
- Place the white chocolate, butter and heavy cream in a small pot over medium-low heat. Constantly stir until just melted and smooth. Alternatively, place the ingredients in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave in 30-second intervals until just melted, about 90 seconds total. Stir in between each interval.
- Stir in the salt and flavourings.
- Scoop out enough mix to form 1-inch balls. Lightly coat your hands in icing sugar and roll the truffles between your palms until round and even.
- Place the balls on a parchment lined baking sheet.
- If using the coating, place the wafers in a small pot over medium-low heat. Constantly stir until just melted and smooth. Alternatively, place the wafers in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave in 30-second intervals until just melted, about 60 seconds total.
- Use a fork to dip the truffles into the coating and drip off any excess. Place back onto the sheet.
- If you want to top the truffles with the coarse sugar, do it right away before the coating sets.
- Repeat with the rest of the truffles. Let set for at least 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
