    I seriously love truffles of any kind. I mean, you saw that during cookie week I made the vegan chocolate truffles and oh my god were they delicious. 

    Making truffles is something that I’ve been obsessed with ever since my mom used to go to her holiday cookie exchange. She made rich truffles one year and they were seriously so delicious that I remember almost making myself sick off of them because I literally couldn’t stop eating them.

    I know that kind of sounds like a horror story and one would think that someone wouldn’t ever want to eat truffles again, but not me. I’m pretty certain the next day I went back into the container and ate more. 

    Some years she would also bring home Oreo truffles, which were my most ultimate weakness. That rich and fudgy Oreo cookie mixed with cream cheese and other ingredients I’m even too scared to look up was literally my version of heaven.

    So I knew when cookie week was happening that I needed to include some kind of truffle in there, although not technically a cookie, they fit in the realm. I made the vegan chocolate truffles and they literally were so melt in your mouth delicious, I was giving myself some major props for that recipe.

    And with the holidays coming up and my obvious love for all things gingersnap flavored, I figured I would make some sort of fudgy truffle that resembled those flavors.

    Enter the easy gingerbread truffles.

    They seriously are easy. They don’t require any blenders or food processors, or even any stoves or ovens. All you need to do is put all of the ingredients into a bowl and mix. Then refrigerate and coat with chocolate if you would like! SO easy.

    They make for a great holiday gift too. I like to wrap them up in a little cellophane baggie with a cute bow and hand them out to the hosts as I’m going to their house for the holidays. Between these and the chocolate truffles, your friends and family will be loving you so much!

    I’m so excited to see what you guys think!
