Super Easy Gingerbread Truffles

A no bake, soft gingerbread filling covered in dark chocolate, and topped with candy cane.  What could be more festive?! These gingerbread truffles are the perfect NO BAKE solution to your holidays!

I love making truffles.  They are so easy to whip up, don’t require baking (most of time time – I guess depending what you put inside!), and you can make them so many fun flavors!  

This recipe is super easy.  I just use my no bake gingerbread cookies, roll them into balls instead of flattening them out into cookies, and then dip them in chocolate!  Then I sprinkled on some candy cane for extra fun 🙂

Ingredients For Gingerbread Truffles:

  • Almond Flour –  this is the main base for the inside of our truffle
  • Coconut Flour – adds some extra texture and flavor to the truffle
  • Nut butter– helps keep the truffle together instead of being too doughy
  • Agave – to sweeten the inside of the truffle
  • Non dairy milk – to combine it all and add moisture!
  • Spices for gingerbread – cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger, molasses
  • Chocolate – to cover the truffles with
  • Coconut oil – to make the chocolate a little easier to manage/go further
  • Candy cane – this is optional but makes a fun topping!  You could also use sea salt or sprinkles or any other fun topping you might want!

Tips for the Perfect Gingerbread Truffles!

  1. I use a drippy nut butter when I make these.  Since they are thinner/more liquidy they are easily spreadable.  If yours is thicker you can try microwaving it to melt it down a little, add a little coconut oil to it to thin it out, or just plan to use more milk!  
  2. If you do microwave your nut butter – do so in short increments (like 20 seconds) and check – you don’t want to burn it!
  3. Feel free to taste as you go!  Mix everything together, and before you make your cookies, taste them!  There are no eggs here so it’s no problem.  This allows you to add extra spices if you want the flavor stronger.
  4. Add milk at your own discretion.  I like the texture of the dough that my recipe below created (obviously!) but add the milk slowly, and when you think you’ve got the perfect dough feel free to stop – or add more than I did!
  5. You don’t HAVE to add coconut oil to your chocolate when melting.  It just helps make it a little runnier/easier to spread with.
  6. Store in the fridge for the best texture

In addition to the listed ingredients, you will need:

  • a mixing bowl
  • a spoon or fork to mix with
  • a cookie sheet
  • parchment paper
  • a microwave safe bowl
  • a fork or candy tool

Hope you enjoy!

A no bake, soft gingerbread filling covered in dark chocolate, and topped with candy cane.  What could be more festive?! These gingerbread truffles are the perfect NO BAKE solution to your holidays!



For the Truffle Inside:

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1.5 tsp ginger
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 cup drippy nut butter
  • 1 tbsp molasses
  • 1 tbsp agave
  • 3 tbsp non dairy milk

To Top:

  • 3/41 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil 
  • Optional: crushed candy cane


  1. Combine the first six ingredients in a large mixing bowl – stir until well mixed.
  2. Add molasses, agave and nut butter.  Stir until dough is formed – it will be very crumby.
  3. Add milk in one tablespoon increments until a softer dough is formed that can be rolled (you also don’t want it too wet, the amount needed will depend on your nut butter!).
  4. Roll into 12 even balls, place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, and put in freezer to chill.
  5. While those chill, melt your chocolate and coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl in 30 second increments, careful not to burn.
  6. Once chocolate is melted, take truffles and dip into chocolate one by one, completely coating, and using a fork to get out of the bowl.
  7. Place back on cookie sheet, sprinkle with toppings, and put in fridge to set.


To ensure this is vegan, use vegan chocolate chips

For a refined sugar free option. omit candy cane (could use sea salt or another topping!)
