If you haven’t noticed by now, we are all about easy, quick (and delicious) treats. Truffles are one of our favorite desserts because they can be made with a few simple ingredients and no baking.
Plus, the recipe can easily be doubled or tripled so you can easily give them out during the holiday season to co-workers and neighbors.
I don’t know about you, but I am loving all these holiday treats, and I personally believe, it is never too early to start making them.
Especially when it comes to these delicious and simple Gingerbread Truffles.
how to make gingerbread truffles:
Step 1: Place gingersnaps in a food processor and crush until they are fine crumbs (if you don’t have a food processor, you can put cookies in a resealable plastic bag and smash with a rolling pin until they are crumbs).
I usually just use my blender. But food processor, or rolling them out with a rolling pin will also work. You want the crumbs to be pretty fine, or else you will have lumpy gingerbread truffles.
Step 2: Place crumbs in a medium bowl. Add cream cheese and mix until well-blended. I used a hand mixer for this step, but you could also use your hands, or a good mixing spoon.
You could use add the cream cheese to the blender or food processor as well.
Step 3: Roll cookie mixture into 1 inch balls (makes about 36 balls). I used my hands for this step, to make them completely round. You could use a cookie scoop, but they will be large and look more like domes.
Step 4: Place balls on a cookie sheet lined with a baking mat or wax paper and stick in the fridge for about 45 minutes.
Step 5: Melt almond bark according to directions on package. Dip each cookie ball in almond bark and place back on lined cookie sheet.
Step 6: Top with nutmeg (if desired). you could also do cinnamon, or white sprinkles as well. I prefer the hint of nutmeg, but anything will do.
I have even topped mine with a few gingersnap cookie crumbs.
Step 7: Repeat with remaining cookie balls and place back in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
Store leftover truffles in a covered container in the fridge.
I usually put mine in little bags, and hand them out to neighbors. These make the perfect holiday gift for friends and family.
The best hack to dipping truffles and candy in chocolate
Dipping items in chocolate, can get a little tricky. However, it is possible to make beautiful, flawless, dipped truffles and chocolates, without much work at all.
All you need is a plastic fork.
Simply remove the two middle prongs on the plastic fork, so you only have the two outside ones.
Place your chocolate ball, or truffle on the two prongs and dip it in the chocolate. Move it around until it is fully covered, then use the two plastic fork prongs, to remove it from the melted chocolate.
Then place your truffles on a covered cookie sheet, and place in refrigerator to harden.
