It’s time for the holidays! And everyone knows what that means…time for holiday baking! Everyone I know does the usual frosted sugar cookies that look too good to eat. This year I wanted to be a bit different so I decided to make some…Festive Gingerbread Cheesecake Truffles!

These one-biters are so cute! The filling can be whatever flavor you want . I opted for some Oreos that I had on hand for a quick recipe but if you have some actual gingerbread handy, use those. Hey, you can even use those sugar cookies that you haven‘t gotten around to decorate ;)

These gingerbread men are bite sized and so adorable to make. And best of all, it’s a no bake recipe. Have fun!

Step 1: Ingredients

For these cute cheesecake truffles, you’ll need:

  • 4 oz. of softened cream cheese
  • 8 Oreo cookies (or whatever cookie you’re using- note: prepare extras for those I’ll-just-try one-to-make-sure-they-taste-okay moments)
  • chocolate- I used both dark chocolate and white chocolate. I used white chocolate to draw the gingerbread men’s faces but when I made these with shortbread bread cookies I used the dark chocolate over a white chocolate layer.
  • Any other decorations you want- I had some slivered almonds that I pressed into the middle of some of the gingerbread men too. Some colorful sprinkles also make these look great too.

And that’s it for the ingredients! Very simple and easy-to-get too :)

Here’s the list of equipment, you need:
  • A freezer :)
  • A rolling pin
  • A rubber spatula
  • Cookie cutters- now I used gingerbread men, but change it up! Maybe cut out some Christmas tree truffles or Hanukkah candles?
  • Toothpicks- the secret to those adorable faces on the gingerbread men (no clean up either!)

Got everything? Well let’s get started!
look fantastic
Thank you!
These LOOK SOOO CUTE =D!! They look gud
Thank you for the nice comment :)!
These look so cute! Can they be called something other than "truffles" though? I assumed these were ganache based. They appear to be more like a crumbly cookie. DELICIOUS looking. Now to figure out what I want to do with all this Oreo filling...
I was thinking the same too! I remember there was an Oreos truffles instructable that used Oreoes and cream cheese coated with chocolate... <br>But then again, if those were proven to be irresistable for me...what will these be? :D
You should try it out sometime. And definitely take pictures if you do! (Aren't they so cute? :)
:3 Maybe I'll make them for Valentines day :D
Oooo good idea. And use a heart cookie cutter, too!
Thank you! I call them truffles because of its similarity of the &quot;regular&quot; truffle. They're truffles in the same sense oreo and cookie dough truffles are truffles. And they definitely were delicious (they took way too long to firm up in the fridge for my tastes LOL). And that's a surplus of food I'd be glad to have around (try using it as frosting :)
I guess I've never had Oreo or cookie dough truffles. o_o All the truffles I've had were cocoa ganache based.
You definitely should...although they're a little too addicting :)
Your Ginger bread and chessecake are very pleasant to the eyes, how wish I can get hold of a piece just to get a feel. But I must confess that ginger is a highly medicinal plant that is good for the human health.<br> I'm a Nigeria and we grow alot of ginger here both for food and for export. I have a blog where encourage people to become an exporter of ginger to the western world where it's used alot.<br> you can check out my blog here at<strong> <a href="http://www.naijabizcom.blogspot.com">www.naijabizcom.blogspot.com</a></strong>
