Ingredients

  • 5-6 cups gingerbread cookies Make sure they are crispy cookies, so they will break up well in the food processor
  • 8 ounces softened cream cheese
  • 1 ½ cup white chocolate I know a lot of people use candy coating, and you can use this as well, but I prefer white chocolate
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil
  • 2-3 tablespoons christmas sprinkles I used gingerbead, red, and green

Instructions

  • Blend cookies in a food processor or blender until they resemble a rough cornmeal. You can add the cream directly into the food processor or blender if you prefer, or move to a bowl and use a spatula or hand mixer to blend. Mix the 2 well.
    Now, scoop your mixture onto a parchment lined baking sheet. You don't have to use parchment, but it is so much easier to clean up after if you do. I used my small size OXO scoop with is about 2 teaspoons. If you want your truffles a little bigger, you can go for 1 tablespoon.
    Roll them in your hands until the balls are smooth.
    Place in the fridge for about an hour until they are set.
    Place your white chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl with the coconut oil. Keep in mind white chocolate can burn easily, so don't walk away during this step. I set it for 20-30 second intervals to melt. Mix between each one. Depending on how high your mixrowave is, this time is a variable. Also note the chocolate does not need to be completely melted in the mocrowave. You will want it to be about 80% melted. Then remove from the microwave and mix until it is smooth.
    Begin dipping the truffles one by one, coating them in the melted chocolate. With a fork, lift the truffles out and tap to remove excess. Place back on the parchment lined tray. Immediatley top with your sprinkles. The truffles are chilled, so the chocolate will harden pretty quickly. If it does set before you get the sprinkles on, simply dot a touch of chocolate to the top and add the sprinkles.
    Once all the truffles are dipped, place back in the fridge to set. With any excess chocolate you have, you can always mix in some nuts and dried fruit. Then drop by spoonfuls on a parchment sheet. Allow to set.
    I found the truffles are best within 3- 5 days. Keep them stored in the fridge in an airtight container.
    Now, sit back and enjoy. You deserve it!
