Gingerbread Chocolate Truffles

These Gingerbread Chocolate Truffles are mouth wateringly delicious. They're dairy free and refined sugar free and would make a lovely little edible gift for friends. I'm completely hooked on them, probably because I adore anything gingerbread flavoured and chocolatey this time of year. Very easy to make, these festive truffles will keep in the fridge for a week, if you can manage not to nibble them during that time... I totally can´t.
