One of my favorite things to make during the month of December is truffles. They are simple to make, but look fancy. And who doesn’t love a ball of chocolate with a surprise flavor inside?  My husband loves gingersnaps and I love chocolate so it is fun to combine the two into a Christmas treat that can fulfill all our tasty desires. These are perfect for Christmas cookie exchanges, and make a great neighbor gift!

Prep Time 30 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Ingredients
  • 1 16 oz package gingersnap cookies (found in the cookie aisle near the Oreos and graham crackers)
  • 1 8 oz package cream cheese
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips
Instructions
  • In a food processor or blender, pulverize the gingersnap cookies.
  • Combine "cookie dust" with ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir through. Add in cream cheese and vanilla and mix until well combined into a smooth dough. Roll into about 48 small, bite-sized balls. Refrigerate or freeze until ready to dip.
  • Melt chocolate in a microwave, pausing to stir it every 15 seconds. Make sure the chocolate doesn't burn.
  • Once the chocolate has melted you are ready to dip. If the chocolate starts to harden you can place it back in the microwave for 10 seconds.
  • Use a skewer or fork to dip dough balls into the melted chocolate then place on waxed paper to harden. Drizzle and smear a little chocolate over any "naked" spots. Store in the refrigerator to finish hardening.
  • Try not to eat the whole pan.
