How to

My secret weapon is this International Delight Gingerbread Latte Creamer! Just a tablespoon or 2 in the cheesecake gives it the perfect holiday flavor!

I know that they are no longer making International Delight Gingerbread Latte Creamer. It is OK. You can make your own Homemade Gingerbread Coffee Creamer and it is so good!

Place the cream cheese in a bowl with the sugar and creamer and whip with an electric mixer at medium speed. Add in the cool whip and stir in with a spoon or spatula, until just combined.

I popped that cheesecake batter in the freezer and then scooped it with my cookie baller. And now my favorite part…I rolled the cheesecake balls in gingersnap cookie crumbs! OMG! SO SO GOOD!

Place on a wire rack or pan and then pop back into the freezer.

  1. What other substitute can you use if you can`t find gingersnap crumbs anywhere?

    Adding an update to this – International Delight did sell this creamer for the 2015 holiday season. So I googled a replacement /substitute and found this post: http://www.cookitfresh.com/2011/12/flavored-creamers/. I did not have the time to make that so instead, I made more of a concentrate with the key ingredients. It was 2-3 tsp maple syrup, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1 tsp cinnamon and 1 tsp ground ginger. I mixed that in with the cream cheese and sugar. It turned out great! I also hand rolled the balls, like meatballs.

    Do these hold their form once they come out of the freezer? Or would it be good to dip in chocolate melts and sprinkle with some gingersnap crumbs? Worried about these kinda melting or becoming blob-like.
