GODIVA always conjures up memories of decadent indulgence in one of the most delicious chocolates you’ll ever eat. So when I was asked to help create a few fun ideas for them, my sweet tooth and I were overjoyed and ready for the task! I wanted to make something that was as luscious as the chocolate itself but also let the chocolate remain the hero in the recipe.

I decided to create the most delicious truffle eggnog ever to spark a little joy this holiday season! To make this treat, I used truffles from the 24-piece Signature Truffle Gift box, which not only works for recipes but would make any recipient swoon!

Why Do We Drink Eggnog At Christmas?

Eggnog has been touted as having its roots in the British aristocracy. It is said, in the winter, the wealthy would drink warm milk and egg beverages seasoned with pricey spices such as ground nutmeg and cinnamon and expensive liquors like brandy and sherry to keep it from spoiling.

When the drink passed to America, rum was used. During the American Revolution, it is thought that rum was replaced with moonshine since supplies of rum from the Caribbean were low.

That scarcity could account for eggnog’s designation a special occasion-only drink.
