BRB, Making Starbucks’s Five-Ingredient Eggnog Truffles for Every Holiday Party This Year

starbucks egg nog latte truffles recipe cat

You know Starbucks’s holiday menu like the back of your hand, so you’re no stranger to the magic that is the eggnog latte. Made with steamed eggnog, roasty espresso and a snow-inspired flurry of nutmeg, the drink is equal parts refined and nostalgic: subtly sweet and super festive. If you think it can’t possibly get any better, meet the bev’s edible soulmate, eggnog latte truffles.

This Starbucks recipe is ridiculously simple to pull off, as it only calls for five main ingredients (plus optional-but-essential sprinkles as a garnish). The truffles are made with Starbucks blonde roast, an ideal mellow pairing for sweet white chocolate and spiced eggnog. Even better, they don’t require any baking time—all you need is your handy microwave (or stovetop) and a freezer. Read on for the full recipe.


  • ⅓ cup eggnog
  • 2 cups white chocolate
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground Veranda blend coffee
  • White chocolate and sprinkles for garnish (optional)


  1. Warm eggnog and add Veranda Blend grounds until it combines into a creamy cup. Then, add in white chocolate, nutmeg and butter and heat on lowest setting.
  2. Stir constantly until completely melted and transfer to a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours until the mixture is cooled and solid.
  3. Once cooled, scoop into tablespoon-sized balls and roll. Once all the truffles are rolled, store them in the freezer.
  4. Remove the truffles from the freezer. Melt the chocolate in a pot and coat the truffles completely. Cover with sprinkles or a dash of nutmeg and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  5. When the shells have hardened, they’re ready to eat.
