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
