easy homemade truffles

Today, Wednesday, and Friday we are going to post a delicious Christmas cookie recipe. And if you know anything about us, you know that it was also be EASY.

The recipe for today is for decadent Gingerbread Truffles. It is a MUST TRY. Trust me on this one.


16 oz. box of gingersnaps

one block of cream cheese (softened)

one package of candy melts


gingersnap truffles

Gather your ingredients. I use a lot of store brand things because I am frugal like that... but if you have a brand you prefer, go with it!

Grind up your gingersnaps in a food processor. I started with just a few at a time, but later decided that I could just throw the whole box in at once. Once you have a lovely bowl of gingersnap crumbs, add your block of softened cream cheese. Mix mix mix until you have a shiny ball of squishy goodness.

Form your "dough" into truffle balls and place them on a cookie sheet covered with foil. I used a 1/2 teaspoon and made heaping mounds. I recommend using two separate cookie sheets for this. This recipe made exactly 36 truffles.

Put the truffles into the fridge for about thirty minutes or so to help them firm up.

Follow the instructions on the candy melts to get them ready. Take one cookie sheet out of the fridge and, using a toothpick, dip the truffles into the candy melts. Don't worry about them being too pretty. You can add a drizzle later to cover up and ugly messes. Once they are all dipped, put them back in the fridge and do the same thing with the other cookie sheet of truffles.

Once my were set, I drizzled some leftover candy melts and Christmas colored sprinkles on the top.

These things are GOOD. Like eat-four-in-one-sitting good.

I do recommend keeping them refrigerated since there is cream cheese involved.

If you are going to a cookie exchange, these will definitely be a crowd favorite. Make them for the teachers at your child's school. Or... make them for YOURSELF.
