A creamy, soft pumpkin pie center wrapped up in white chocolate!
Hey guys, it’s Adell from Baked in Arizona! How is everyone?! I hope you are all having a great October so far. Fall is seriously the best. The weather, the food, the holidays! We also have a bunch of birthdays in my family we get to celebrate. Is it that way for you? I feel like October is a big month for birthdays.
So about this recipe. I love truffles! I even served peanut butter truffles at my wedding reception! So, I was so excited to try these pumpkin truffles. I have to admit, I’m not a huge pumpkin pie fan. I like pumpkin cheesecake, and almost anything pumpkin but plain pumpkin pie? Not my favorite. Add some white chocolate to the mix & you have a winner in my book! I hope you all love these truffles as much as we did.
The center is soft and creamy. Just like pumpkin pie.
Pumpkin Pie Truffles
- 18 golden oreo cookies (1/2 package)
- 2 ounces cream cheese
- 1/4 cup pure pumpkin puree
- 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 2 Tablespoons + 1/2 cup powdered sugar, divided
- 1/4 cup white chocolate chips
- 12 ounces vanilla almond bark
- crumbled gingersnap cookie, optional
- Put the oreos in a food processor and pulse until you have crumbs. Put the crumbs in a medium sized bowl & add the cream cheese, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice & 2 tablespoons powdered sugar. Mix until combined.
- Melt the white chocolate chips in the microwave. Add them to the pumpkin mixture and stir till incorporated. Put the mixture in the fridge (or freezer to save time) to chill for 30 minutes to an hour.
- Put a 1/2 cup powdered sugar in a small bowl. Scoop desired size truffle from the pumpkin mix and drop into the bowl of powered sugar. Turn to coat. Roll into a ball and put on a parchment lined cookie sheet. (The powdered sugar helps them not stick to your hands too much but these truffles are a little messy to make into balls.)
- Once the truffles are all formed, chill them in the freezer or fridge until pretty firm.
- Melt the almond bark according to package directions. Dip the chilled truffles in the almond bark and set on the parchment paper. Sprinkle with the crumbled gingersnap and let set up in the fridge.
- Store the truffles in the refrigerator. Serve chilled.
- Makes around 15 truffles depending on the the exact size you end up forming. Recipe could easily be doubled.
