Gingerbread Oreo Truffles
The Christmas season is here! This means I’ll be cranking out festive treats like these Gingerbread OREO Truffles almost daily! They’re super easy to make and delicious. You can serve them at a holiday party or package them in a pretty box for gifting.
Grab the kids to help you make this recipe! My 3-year-old and 6-year-old LOVE helping me mix, roll, and dip these Gingerbread OREO Truffles! Their favorite part of helping is placing the decorative gingerbread man sprinkle on top of each truffle.
Let me show you how easy these OREO truffles are to make!
Using a 1-Tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop filling into level tablespoon amounts. Roll into a ball, and place onto a cookie sheet to chill.
Dip the chilled balls into the melted chocolate, scoop out using a fork, and scrape off excess chocolate on the side of the bowl.
Place the dipped balls on a wax-lined cookie sheet, place decorative sprinkles on top (optional). Chill for 1 hour in the refrigerator and enjoy!
