Gingerbread Truffles

I stumbled across a recipe in Bon Appetit several years back, clipped it, stuck it in a pile, and promptly forgot about it. It got shuffled to the top of a "recipes to try" stack a couple Christmases ago, and IMMEDIATELY earned a place in my go-to repertoire. These things are just straight up fan-friggin’-tastic. They really are like a gingerbread cookie in chocolate bon-bon form. Christmas in a ball. Don’t bother with that final dusting of cocoa powder for this one. Let’s not fancy these up at all.
