Welcome to day #4 of Christmas Week, a multi-blogger event co-hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Jen of Juanita’s Cocina. Today’s theme for Christmas Week is “Gingerbread Surprise”.

I make truffles every year for Christmas.  I usually stick with a plain chocolate, a mint one, and then an almond flavored one.  Last year I did Cookie Dough Tuffles, and my son is already requesting that we do those again this year.  This year, I had to find a way to turn Biscoff into a truffle.  And pairing it with Gingerbread seemed like a great combination.

Gingerbread Biscoff Truffles {Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts}

These are super easy to make, and you can use all store bought ingredients if you want.  Sssshhhhh, don’t tell anyone, but that is what I did.  All you have to do is find your favorite gingerbread cookie (or ginger snaps).  Biscoff Cookies would be perfect too (I might have made some that way as well).  Crush the cookies in your food processor, mix in some Biscoff spread, roll into balls, and dip in chocolate.  They are a little crunchy in the inside, and completely decadent!

Gingerbread Biscoff Truffles are a great treat for the holidays

I gave these to my MIL for part of her Christmas present (we celebrated when we were in WI for Thanksgiving), and also gave some to my husbands Grandma.  They got rave reviews all around.  Even my Dad who is the ultimate skeptic with anything not 100% chocolate, thought they were delicious!  So get in the kitchen, and make these for your holiday cookie tray.

Biscoff Granola Bars

I think I have made it pretty clear that I am a big fan of Biscoff.  Anything from cupcakes, to bars, to cookies, to pie I am all over it.  So when Maria from Two Peas & Their Pod posted a recipe for granola bars with Biscoff Spread, I knew I needed to make them.  I love making granola bars at home, so ones with Biscoff seemed like a no brainer.

I made these while my son was at school, so he could have one for an after school snack.  I had to sneak one before he got home, just to make sure they were good enough for him, of course.  Ok.  I knew these would be good, but wow!  They have chocolate chips, biscoff cookies, and biscoff spread, I mean can you get any better!

My son was such a fan he wanted these in his lunch instead of a cookie.  These were gone in no time.  They aren’t the most healthy granola bars out there, but they are homemade, so you know what is in there.  Plus, plenty of oats make for a whole grain snack.  So they are way better than a brownie or a cookie.
