Very nice for a holiday goodie platter, and especially adorable if you can find the little sugar decorations shaped like tiny gingerbread men to adorn them (I think they're made by Wilton, and can usually be found in party supply stores). Fight the urge to omit the extra spices because of the gingerbread cookie crumbs -- the added spice helps to cut the sweetness of the white chocolate and gives the truffles a bit of warmth (important in all things gingerbread). I omit the nuts when I make these, so to make up the bulk, I just crush up a full 1lb box of gingersnaps. If you like the nuts in these, then just use the amount of gingersnap crumbs in the ingredient list. Sorry, I forgot to count how many truffles I ended up with when I made these, so the amount is a semi-educated guess. Cooking time is actually chilling time here, all other steps are included in the preparation time. Adapted from a recipe originally found on about.com.
