I needed a good pumpkin entry before thanksgiving at least! This is my pumpkin entry… Pumpkin truffles. Oh I love these. And I think everyone else does too.
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
3/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
White chocolate bark
Orange food coloring
Mix butter, pumpkin pie puree & spice in a small non-stick sauce pan
Heat over med. heat for about 8-10 minutes. The mixture will lose its water and be about 1/2 cup
In a separate bowl mix brown sugar, flour, and salt well. Then add in cooked pumpkin and mix well.
Chill in freezer for 30- 1 hr. I like to do it as long as possible to make it easier to manage.
Roll into 1 inch balls and then into graham cracker and place on wax paper on a cookie sheet.
Place back into the freezer while you prepare the chocolate. Melt the chocolate in a deep bowl and then add orange food coloring to it. Make sure it is oil based since it is chocolate.
To dip into the chocolate, drop the round ball into the chocolate and then drizzle chocolate over it. Scoop out with a spoon and place on cookie sheet. While chocolate is still warm, place pecan on top to resemble stem.
I drew lines down the pumpkins with green food coloring. I hope you like it These will be a favorite!
