White chocolate eggnog ganache

  • Break half of the couverture (4.95 oz / 140 g) into small pieces and put them in a mixing bowl.
  • Heat the eggnog in a pot (do not boil!) and empty it over the chocolate pieces
  • Let it sit for two minutes, and then stir the mixture with a whisk until smooth. 
  • Pour the white chocolate mixture into a squeezing bottle. Let it cool down for 15 minutes (or until it reaches 77 °F // 25 °C) in the fridge.

Filling the chocolate hollows

  • Fill the hollow spheres with the white chocolate eggnog ganache until just below the rim.
  • Afterward, put them into the fridge for several hours (about 8 hours). 

Sealing the chocolate hollows

  • Now melt the remaining couverture in a water bath.
  • Take the cooled hollow spheres out of the fridge and seal them with your chosen sealing tool (squeeze bottle, syringe, or dropper). 
  • Place the sealed chocolates in the refrigerator for 30 minutes until firm.

Coating and decorating the truffles

  • Use the already melted chocolate from the sealing for the coating.
  • Prepare a cooling grid or wax paper to place the chocolates to dry.
  • Now, one by one, take the chocolates, dip them into the tempered chocolate coating and then carefully lift them out.
  • Let the excess chocolate drip off briefly and place them carefully on the cooling grid or wax paper.
  • While the chocolate coating is still soft and moist, you can decorate your eggnog pralines with holiday sprinkles according to your taste.
  • Once the chocolate coating is solid and your pralines are ready.
