Eggnog Fudge Truffles

This recipe was originally developed to go in my 2015 Christmas Edible Gift hamper. This one was a new fudge flavour for me. I figured that since Eggnog is largely cream, one of the main components of fudge, that it would work very well. It did. Using ready made eggnog is easier, but you can…
