Ingredients

For Gingerbread truffle

  • 500 grams Gingersnap Cookies
  • ½ cup Cocoa powder
  • ½ cup pecan Roughly crushed ( reserved more for garnishing)
  • .5 Tablespoon Ginger powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Instant Coffee powder
  • cup Creame Chesse (see notes)
  • Big Pinch of salt

For Chocolate Coating

  • 150 gms good quality dark chocolate

Instructions

  • Mix everything mentioned under Gingerbread truffle. When you pinch the mixture in between your finger if it comes together, then it is the right consistency.
  • Scoop a tablespoon of mixture and make a smooth tight ball. Repeat with the rest of the mixture.
  • Rest the shaped balls in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours.
  • And the end of the resting period, chop chocolate into small chunks. Using a double boiler or microwave melt the chocolate.
  • Remove the shaped balls from the refrigerator. While still cold dip each ball in melting chocolate using a slotted spoon. Shake off extra chocolate and place on a parchment paper.
  • Sprinkle remaining crushed pecan on the top, when still wet.
  • Store in an airtight container.

Notes

  • Start with ¼th cup cream cheese and increase a tablespoon each until you reach the desired consistency.  The amount of cream cheese required depends on the type of cookies you use.
  • These truffles were of right sweetness for us, so I didn't add any sweetener.  If you want you can add honey or sugar.
