  1. Add cream cheese, powdered sugar, nutmeg and rum extract to a mixing bowl. Mix together cream cheese mixture using a cooking spoon.
  2. Add 8 ounces (1/2 pound) white chocolate to a microwave-safe mixing bowl. Open the microwave oven door and place microwave-safe mixing bowl in the microwave oven. Close the microwave oven door. Proceed to cook white chocolate on high (100% power), for 30 seconds.
  3. Remove bowl from microwave oven and stir until chocolate is smooth. Use a cooking spoon to mix together the white chocolate.
  4. Add the chocolate mixture to the cream cheese mixture and beat until smooth using a cooking spoon. Cover mixing bowl with food safe plastic wrap. Place bowl in refrigerator and allow the candy mixture to chill for about 2 hours. The mixture will be slightly firm when ready to make the truffles.
  5. Line baking sheets with waxed paper. To do this, pull out waxed paper from waxed paper box until the waxed paper is the size you need to line the baking sheet. Tear off the waxed paper and lay it on the baking sheet.
  6. Add the remaining white chocolate] to a microwave-safe mixing bowl. Place the bowl in the microwave oven. Close the microwave oven door and set the microwave oven to the high (100%) setting. Melt remaining chocolate using the high setting (100%), stir chocolate once or twice during cooking. Cook until the chocolate is melted and smooth. Use a cooking spoon to stir the chocolate.
  7. Remove bowl of melted chocolate from microwave oven. Place the mixing bowl on a clean kitchen counter. Remove the cream cheese and chocolate mixture from the refrigerator, and roll the candy mixture into one-inch balls using your impeccably clean hands.
  8. Dip the one-inch balls into the melted chocolate. You can use a fork or candy dipper to dip the candy balls into the melted chocolate. Place the one-inch candy ball onto the fork, or the candy dipper, and dip the candy into the melted chocolate. Be sure to cover the candy in a thin layer of melted chocolate. Place the dipped candies onto the wax paper lined baking sheets.
  9. Allow the candies to set (the candy shell will harden) before placing onto a pretty platter. You can also place the candies into miniature muffin paper liners and add to food-safe gift boxes to share with friends.
