- Crush gingersnaps to a fine meal in a food processor.

- Roll cream cheese mixture into teaspoon-size balls. Dip each ball in the melted chocolate, allowing excess chocolate to drip back into bowl. Arrange truffles onto waxed paper to dry.

- Cook's Note:
- Chopped candied ginger can be substituted for the ground ginger, if desired. You can also wrap the pieces of candied ginger in cream cheese mixture before coating in chocolate. Be warned, these will pack a punch but are ohhh so good!
- Store truffles in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
- Parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.
