Ginger Chocolate Truffles – Recipe

Ginger Chocolate Truffles – Recipe


  • 8 oz cream cheese (one package), softened
  • 4 cups powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 5 oz unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled (1.5 min in the microwave, stirring once halfway through)
  • 1 cup toasted, ground almonds (for coating)
  • Chocolate sprinkles (optional for coating)
  • Cocoa powder (optional for coating)


  1. Add cream cheese into a large mixing bowl, and mix with an electric mixer until smooth.
  2. Mix powdered sugar with ginger.
  3. Gradually add to cream cheese and mix well.
  4. Add melted chocolate, and mix until combined.
  5. Cover and chill for at least an hour or overnight.
  6. Shape the chilled mixture into 1-inch balls.
  7. Roll in almonds, or any other of your favorite coatings.
  8. Store in an airtight container in the fridge, for up to 2 weeks (if you can keep away from them for that long..).


My favorite coating is the cocoa powder. These truffles tend to get quite soft is kept out of fridge for a long time.  For best results, please store in the fridge, in an airtight container.
