Gingerbread Truffle Ingredients
To make the filling gather up your ground spices such as cinnamon, ginger, allspice, cloves, nutmeg, and black pepper. Then reach for the salt, powdered sugar, cookie butter or Biscoff spread, and your gingersnap cookies.
RECIPE NOTE: The cinnamon and ginger can be increased for an even spicier truffle, but I would not use more than 1 teaspoon of each. My mom preferred them spicer and I preferred them with the measurements called for in the recipe card below.
The chocolate shell is made up of melted white chocolate chips paired with coconut oil. If using melting wafers or almond bark instead of the chocolate chips omit the coconut oil.
Make them festive by picking up some holiday sprinkles to sprinkle on top of them as the chocolate coating dries!
How To Make Gingerbread Balls
Prepare your large baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper and set it aside. Grab the gingerbread cookies and add them to your food processor and process until they turn to fine crumbs.
Then add in the spices, powdered sugar, and cookie butter to the food processor and mix together.
Once the gingerbread mixture is thoroughly combined, roll into balls using a medium cookie scoop to help portion them out.
Next, place the rolled balls onto your lined baking sheet to be chilled in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
When ready, melt together the white chocolate chips and coconut oil until smooth, and begin dipping each ball in the melted chocolate. Place the dipped gingerbread balls back onto the baking sheet, sprinkling with sprinkles if desired, then allow chocolate to harden.
Dress these truffles up to share with others by placing them individually in decorative baking cups inside small treat boxes. Tie them off to finish them up by using your favorite holiday ribbon!

You can add more gingersnap crumbs. You can also try chilling the mixture before you portion it out into balls.
Linda Holland says
I have mixed this by the recipe, but it is not stiff enough to roll into balls. What did I do wrong. It taste very good, but what can I do?
Rebecca Hubbell says
Hi Rosina, this is biscoff spread, it looks like it’s available on Amazon in Canada but is not widely available at grocery stores. https://www.amazon.ca/Biscoff-Creamy-Spread-14-1-Ounce/dp/B01GGWBB94 It is NOT hazelnut spread. If you cannot find any cookie butter, you can substitute with 8 ounces cream cheese and an additional 1/2 cup of powdered sugar. This will give more of a Gingerbread Cheesecake flavor, but still delicious. You may also want to increase the cinnamon and ginger since you’re losing the spices from the spread.
Hi Rebecca for anyone living in Canada what can we substitute for cookie butter( what is cookie butter)? Or Biscott spread ( do you mean a hazelnut spread??
Thank you for your reply
