It’s that time of year when I begin to make some edible presents and these GingerBread Cookie Dough Truffles are just perfect. I wanted something simple, cheap and tasty to make and take to my various agents (acting and voice) and I really didn’t have a lot of time.
So these are quick and cheap and so scrummy – ONLY 4 INGREDIENTS and no baking required. So, there really is no excuse. Time to make some homemade Christmas goodies.
Ingredients for GingerBread Cookie Dough Truffles
200g ginger nut biscuits
130g cream cheese
120g white chocolate
2-3 tsp Christmas Sprinkles
2 lined baking trays
some space in the fridge for chilling
makes about 26 GingerBread Cookie Dough Truffles
1) In a large bowl crush/crumble your ginger nut biscuits until flour like. You can use a food processor for ease, I just used the end of my wooden rolling pin and a bit of elbow grease.
2) Chuck in your cream cheese and mix together. I started using a wooden spoon then finished off whisking with an electric whisk for a smooth finish.
3) Grab about a tsp – tsp and a half of the dough and roll into a small ball using your hands. I rolled them in-between the palms of my hands, then place on the baking sheets. Do this until you have no dough left. Chuck these in the fridge for 1-2 hour until firm, or, if you don’t have time, pop them in the freezer for about 20 mins.
4) When these have nearly finished their time in the fridge/freezer, melt your white chocolate. Click here for my preferred method to melt chocolate and go to number 11.
5) Once the chocolate has melted, remove the truffle balls and roll in the melted white chocolate. I did this by plonking the balls in the bowl, rolling them round in the chocolate with two small teaspoons and then removing and placing back on the baking sheet. Once each truffle is covered in chocolate, sprinkle with a few tsps of any christmas sprinkles that you fancy and pop back in the fridge until set (around 1-2 hours).
….and there you have it, GingerBread Cookies Dough Truffles done. Merry Christmas!
P.S. Best to keep in the fridge.
