- Break Gingerbread cookies into pieces and place them into a food processor or nutribullet.
- Pulse until small crumbles form. Remove 2 tablespoons of crumbles and set aside for garnish.
- Add the cream cheese, milk and protein powder to the food processor and continue pulsing until combined.
- Separate the mixture into 12 evenly sized balls and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Chill in the freezer for 15 minutes.
- While freezing, melt the chocolate in a microwave safe dish until smooth.
- After 15 minutes, remove balls from freezer and dip each ball into the chocolate and top with gingerbread cookie crumbles.
- Repeat until you have covered each ball.
- Return balls to the freezer to harden the chocolate before serving.
Be sure to store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator or a cool place to prevent melting.
