These Gingerbread Truffles are so easy desserts. All you got to do is combine Gingersnap crumbs with cream cheese, make small truffle balls and freeze them. Then coat them in white chocolate and serve!
It's so wonderful that this time of the year, all you get to see are Peppermint. Gingerbread, Eggnog, and Chocolate desserts, the moment you open any social media handle. People love baking at this time of the year and these four are obviously everyone's first choices. And why not! It's finally the end of the year and it's time to just forget everything and drop every concern and just whip up the cutest desserts in the kitchen.
Today I made these Gingerbread Truffles with my boys. When it comes to cute desserts, I always turn towards them. They seem to have the cutest ideas which I love so much. Today I made these Truffles with them. It was so much fun. We started out by making the Gingersnap crumbs. And they won't let me use the food processor. So, I actually had to take the Gingersnap cookies in a zip lock bag, seal it and hand it to them along with a rolling pin. And they pounded these cookies to crumbs for me! 🙂
Then we took turns in making small truffle balls!
They even tried coating these with chocolate but they weren't perfect at it, so I finished the rest.
The best thing about coating truffles with white chocolate is that it needs extra time to set. White chocolate sets perfectly even at room temperature so it was like just seconds after coating the truffles with chocolate, they were ready to be eaten. I dusted the top with some Cinnamon Sugar for that extra sweetness and it was AMAZING!
Seriously! These Quick Gingerbread Truffles are beyond delicious...
Ingredients needed to make Quick Gingerbread Truffles
- 2 cups Gingersnap cookies crumb
- 8 oz Cream Cheese (softened)
- White Melting Wafers (10oz)
- Cinnamon sugar for dusting on top (optional)
How to make Quick Gingerbread Truffles
First, make the gingersnap cookies crumb. To make the crumb, take the Gingersnap cookies in a ziplock bag. Seal it and pound it using a rolling pin, until you get the crumbs. You can alternatively, use a food processor to pulse the Gingersnap cookies.
Make sure you're using hard store-bought Gingersnap cookies. Do not use freshly baked Gingersnap cookies. If you're using homemade cookies it should be at least a day old.
Combine the Gingersnap crumbs with Cream Cheese.
Make small tablespoon-size Truffle balls. Roll it between your Palms to get an even round shape.
Place them on a silicone mat lined dish. Freeze for 30-45 minutes.
Meanwhile, Melt the White Melting Wafers in the oven at 30 seconds bursts. If it's not melting properly, then add a few drops of coconut oil and then melt it.
Whisk it until it gets smooth and creamy.
Remember to melt the White Melting Wafers only 5-10 minutes before you're about to get the truffles out. White Chocolate will harden up quickly even if kept at room temperature and then you will have to do everything again.
Now, get the Truffles out and dip them in melted white chocolate. Dip these once with a fork and then roll and coat the other side.
For an even and smooth layer of white chocolate, quickly take them out from the chocolate, tap the fork at the edge of the plate to drip off the excess chocolate, and then slide it slowly on a silicone mat lined plate using a toothpick or knife.
Dust the top of the truffles with some Cinnamon Sugar. To make Cinnamon Sugar, just combine some brown sugar with some ground Cinnamon. Mix until combined. Dust over the truffles and serve.
