Key Ingredients You’ll Need
Gingerbread Cookies: You will mix the gingersnap cookies with cream cheese to form the truffles.
White Almond Bark: You will dip the truffles in the white chocolate to make it look exactly like a snowman.
Decorations: You will need orange gumdrops, Twizzler pull, and peels, Mini Reese’s Cups, Mini Oreos, and black frosting to make the perfect snowman.
How To Make Snowman Truffles
Step 1. In a food processor, add the cookies in and pulse until you have fine crumbs. Add the crumbs and cream cheese into a large bowl and combine using an electric mixer. Scoop 1 1/2 Tbsps of the crumbs into your hands and roll them into balls. Arrange them onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Chill in the fridge or freezer to chill.
Step 2. Melt the white chocolate in a heat-safe bowl in 30-second intervals when the cookie balls are ready to dip. Stir until smooth and fully melted. Add some of the melted chocolate onto the parchment paper to look like a puddle. Dip the balls into the chocolate with 2 forks and gently shake the excess off. Set each ball onto each of the little puddles of chocolate. Once the chocolate has hardened, you can begin to decorate.
Step 3. Use one peel from the Twizzlers and wrap it around each of the truffles to make a scarf. Cut the gumdrops into a small triangle for the nose. Make 2 eyes using the black frosting. You will also secure the oreo on the snowman head using the frosting. Put a mini Reese’s cup on top to make the hat. Serve and enjoy!
