Easy Gingerbread Truffles made with 5 ingredients! A delicious gluten-free and dairy-free gingerbread dessert recipe. Perfect for the holidays!
If you’re looking for an easy holiday dessert to mix up those cookie plates, look no further. I first made these last December for my family and knew they needed to make it to the blog this year.
Chocolate truffles are the ultimate two-bite treat. But so often the ones offered at holiday gatherings are not dairy-free. And the ones covered in cookie crumbs like these gingerbread truffles, are almost never gluten-free.
How to Make Gingerbread Truffles
I’m here to remedy that. Your ingredient list is really quite simple. You will need:
- Full-fat coconut milk
- Dairy-free chocolate chips
- 6-8 gluten-free/dairy-free gingersnap cookies
- Ground cinnamon
- Ground ginger
Start by heating the coconut milk in a saucepan and then stir in the chocolate chips. The chocolate chips will melt and form your decadent chocolate truffle base.
Allow the chocolate base to chill for at least 3 hours. This is most certainly the hardest part!
Once the chocolate truffle base has set, it’s time to roll. But first, pulse your gingersnap cookies in a food processor until you get fine crumbs.
Roll the chocolate into tablespoon size or smaller balls and then roll into your cookie crumbs. Serve straight away or keep them in the refrigerator until it is time to share!
