A Gorgeous (and Easy) Dessert Recipe for The Holidays

Hi Everyone!

I'm so thrilled it's Saturday and I'm already in the kitchen as we speak making these fabulous Gingerbread Cookie Dough Truffles, thanks to the food blog, Love & Olive Oil  (Recipe below pics)

I don't know about you, but I LOVE anything with gingerbread and yes I do get Starbucks Gingerbread Lattes.

So, how pretty are these to serve over the holidays or better yet take as a hostess or holiday gift?

They look super easy to make!

ENJOY!

XOXO

Gingerbread Cookie Dough Truffles

Yield: about 30 truffles
Total Time: 2 hours

Ingredients:

1/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1/4 cup unsulphered molasses
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 1/4 teaspoons ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 ounces white-chocolate candy coating

Directions:

In a large bowl, beat butter, molasses, and sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Mix in vanilla. Stir in flour, spices, and salt and mix on low speed (or by hand) until incorporated. Cover and chill dough for 30 minutes or until firm enough to handle.
Form dough into 1-inch balls and arrange them on baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Place sheets in the freezer for at least 15 minutes. Meanwhile, melt candy coating in a double boiler or microwave according to package directions, being careful not to overheat it. Using a fork or dipping tool, dip truffles one at a time in candy coating to cover. Tap fork on the edge of the bowl to shake off excess coating, and return truffles to baking sheets. Quickly top with decorative sprinkles or edible glitter (if desired), before coating sets. Truffles will keep, refrigerated in an airtight container, for up to 5 days.
