If you are like me, you are super excited that pumpkin spice season is coming up. Even though I love summer, there is something about that pumpkin spice aroma that puts a smile on my face.
These Pumpkin Pie Truffles not only have that aroma that I love, they also have the simplicity that I love too. You only need 5 ingredients and everything can be mixed in 1 food processor.
After a few hours in the refrigerator, you only have to then roll them up into small truffles and dip them in white chocolate. They will work great for your Thanksgiving feast, especially if baking a pumpkin pie is not your thing.
20 graham crackers
2 1/2 ounces cream cheese
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
2 cups white chocolate
In a food processor, pulverize graham crackers into a fine crumb. Place in a bowl and set aside. Into the same food processor, add cream cheese, the pumpkin puree, and pumpkin pie spice, and mix until smooth. Add the graham cracker crumbs back in and continue mixing until incorporated. Scrape down the sides as needed. Place mixture into a bowl and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
While the mixture is cold, roll into 1-inch balls and place on wax paper. Freeze truffles for at least 2 hours or overnight.
Melt white chocolate and then dip truffles one at a time to evenly coat. Set on wax paper to harden. Dip the truffles a second time. While the truffles are still wet, sprinkle the top with a dusting of pumpkin pie spice and let truffles harden completely.
