Ingredients

  • 36 Gingerbread Oreo Cookies
  • 8 oz. cream cheese softened
  • 6-8 oz. almond bark baking chocolate or melting chocolate wafers
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

Instructions

  • Using a blender or a food processor, pulse cookies until ground and are fine crumbs. {You are using the entire cookie; cream and all!} Pour crumbs into a large bowl and stir together with softened cream cheese. After it becomes too hard to mix with a spoon, use your hands until a uniform ball is formed. Using a cookie scoop, measure out each truffle, one by one onto a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper. After all the truffles are scooped, roll each one in between your hands to smooth. 
  • In a smaller bowl, melt almond bark until smooth. In a separate bowl, stir sugar, cinnamon and ginger together.
  • To make the truffles: dip each one into the melted almond bark, rolling around to cover and then remove using a fork, letting excess drip off before placing back onto wax paper. Sprinkle the top with spiced sugar. Continue this process until all truffles are coated. Store in refrigerator  until ready to serve.
