Gingerbread Rice Krispie Treats with them.
I love making these easy treats. There is no baking involving, but it's still fun. And not much mess.
I decorated them with some shimmery sprinkles, perfect for a New Year's Eve party. Don't they look pretty all dressed up?
I hope you all have a wonderful New Year's Eve. We are having a party at out neighbors house to celebrate. See you in the new year!
Gingerbread Cheesecake Truffles
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Keywords: no bake dessert snack cream cheese gingerbread oreos gingerbread candy melt egg nog candy melt truffles American winter
Ingredients (26 truffles)
- 1 package (15.25 oz.) Gingerbread Oreos
- 1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup Wilton's Gingerbread Candy Melt wafers
- 1/2 cup Wilton's Eggnog Candy Melt wafers
- 1/2 cup Wilton's Dark Cocoa Candy Melt wafers
- vegetable shortening (for thinning out candy melt)
InstructionsFor the truffles
Grind the Oreo cookies in a food processor and hand mix or use stand mixer to combine with cream cheese until it becomes a dough like consistency.
Roll Oreo mixture into quarter size balls (about 1 tablespoon's worth) and place in airtight container lined with wax paper.
Place the container in the refrigerator overnight to set or in the freezer for at least an hour.For the topping
After the balls are set, melt candy candy melt (1 flavor at a time) in the microwave as per directions on package. (If the candy melt is too thick, add vegetable shortening, 1 teaspoon at a time until you reach a desirable consistency for dipping.)
Remove Oreo balls from the refrigerator or freezer.
Dip the Oreo balls into candy coating mixture until all covered. (I use a fork.) Once covered, remove and softly tap until excess candy melt falls off. Then place the balls on wax paper until the candy melt hardens.
Carefully add the sprinkles to the top of the balls before the candy melt hardens.
