modified version of an old nestle vbb website recipe (the original used nestles swirled holiday morsels which i don't think is produced anymore...we never liked those so we start with other red & green substitutes before deciding that sprinkles were the perfect substitute!). my neice helps me make this every Christmas Eve!

2 teaspoons rum extract
1 1/2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
1/4 cup red, white & green sprinkles

1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 stick of butter or margarine, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
