Eggnog Brigadeiros

Yesterday I spent most of the day in pajamas, drinking eggnog flavored coffee, listening to Christmas music and baking, cooking and candy making. 
In short; I was in heaven.
When planning what I was going to include in my Christmas goodie boxes I came across this recipe and had to give it a shot.
A Brazilian candy made of sweetened condensed milk, butter and spiced rum...seriously how could something with that ingredient list not be good?!
You start out with the egg yolks, sweetened condensed milk, butter and freshly grated nutmeg in a heavy saucepan and cook it on medium low heat constantly stirring. And stirring. And still stirring.
I may have wimped out during the constant stirring and asked Louis to take a turn at the stove.
Twice
After they are ready you chill it, scoop it into small balls and roll it in a coating
I chose a mix of grated white chocolate and colorful sprinkles to roll mine in
They are sticky and sweet and include rum
Do you really need any more convincing to try them?! 
Next time I think I will try the chocolate version and add frangelico at the end to do a Nutella spin on them!

What is your favorite Holiday treat to hand out?
