These Gingerbread Truffles will melt in your mouth. Literally. They are gluten free and dairy free. Make them as a hostess gift, for your own holiday entertaining, or just to enjoy noshing on yourself.
Is it me or does anyone else bite the head off of a gingerbread man first? Ok… just checking. I love the flavor of gingerbread anything and everything!
For the inside filling, I used one bag of Mi-Del Gluten Free Ginger Snaps and one 8 oz container of Daiya Dairy Free Cream “Cheese”. I also used Primal Palate’s Organic Gingersnap Spice Mix. The easiest way to crush up the ginger snaps is in a Nutribullet. Be sure to let the cream cheese come to room temperature and then add it in to mix everything all up. It couldn’t be easier!
My preference is to use Blackstrap molasses over regular molasses. Blackstrap molasses is the dark, viscous molasses that remains after the extraction of sugar from raw sugar cane. It has the consistency of a thick syrup, as the third boiling of sugar syrup yields blackstrap molasses. Blackstrap molasses contains essential vitamins and minerals like vitamin B6, calcium, manganese, magnesium, potassium, iron and selenium. Molasses may help to relieve PMS symptoms, stabilize blood sugar levels, improve bone health, treat symptoms of ADHD and boost skin health. Research has shown that children with ADHD are also deficient in zinc, magnesium, calcium and iron, which help to support brain function, and makes blackstrap molassas a great alternative to refined sugar.
For the chocolate coating, you can use regular dairy free chocolate (like Enjoy Life) or a vegan white chocolate. Mix in a little bit of Bulletproof Brain Octane or extra virgin olive oil. Always remember, when working with chocolate (and yes, even vegan chocolate), you never want to get it wet, or heat it too long, or it will seize up. Be patient and gentle and you will be greatly rewarded.
