Gingerbread Truffles ~ Cookie Swap

This has been my project for the weekend.  After seeing our darling gingerbread man in the Sentsational Season Bundle, I knew I wanted to use it for my Sassy Stampers Meetup group this month. We are having a cookie swap and of course I wanted to make a theme.  If you know me at all, you know I am a theme kind of girl.  However cutting cookies is not my best effort of cooking!  :(  I do cook when I have to but mostly my sweet husband cooks for us. 

Several years ago I found the Chocolate Oreo Cookie Truffle recipe (at the time that was the only type of Oreo made.)   I used the same idea but I was going to use vanilla Oreo cookies and maybe add some gingersnap cookies to it with some extra spices.  When I was looking at the cookie aisle and finally found Oreos I almost stumbled over you guessed Oreo Gingerbread cookies!!! YEAH!!!!  So this is what I came up with.  


I stamped the gingerbread man on 3 sides of the Kraft box and stamped and cut out the gingerbread man for the front.  Made a bow using the Cherry Cobbler Tulle and added a button in the middle of the bow part. Attached the recipe and voila!!!
