Easy Pumpkin Pie Truffles

We are officially a few days away from Thanksgiving! I’m not ready for pumpkin season to be over, but I’m extremely ready for the holiday season. I made pumpkin pie truffles over this past weekend. I wanted to make sure I had as much pumpkin as possible before Thanksgiving. They were a huge hit. David didn’t like them, but he doesn’t count. He hates sweets. Since they were so popular, I decided to share them with you.

Items used:

Food Processor

Mixing Bowl

Wilton’s White Candy Melts

Pumpkin Spice Truffles

To start out, I put 9 graham cracker sheets in my food processor, and pulsed until they were a ground up finely.

I removed the graham crackers, and added the pumpkin, cream cheese, and pumpkin spice. I pulsed that until completely combined, and then added the graham crackers back in. I saved a little bit to put on top of the truffles, and I mixed that with ground roasted cinnamon. I pulsed that until smooth.

I added the mixture into a bowl, and put it in to the freezer for 30 minutes to make the mixture easier to roll.

 After the 30 minutes I rolled them into balls. Okay, I totally slacked here, and forgot to take pictures of the mixture once I rolled it into balls. After I rolled them into balls, I stuck them back into the freezer for 90 minutes. Once they were ready I melted the chocolate, and rolled the balls in the chocolate. Before they set I sprinkled the cinnamon graham cracker crumb mixture.

Honestly, these were so much easier to make than I would have ever imagine they would be. You can check out my mini apple pies here, or my extra chocolatey brownies with salted caramel drizzle here.
