How to make festive white chocolate pumpkin spice truffles.
This recipe is so simple and really easy to make. You’ll be in and out of the kitchen in less than 40 minutes! And all you need is baking sheet, parchment paper, a mixing bowl, a freezer, and a microwave.
Here, I’ll walk you through the steps to make these delicious, healthy, and festive pumpkin spice truffles!
First, line a baking tray that will fit in your freezer with parchment paper.
Then, in a large bowl, combine pumpkin puree, almond butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract, pumpkin spice, and coconut flour. Mix together with a spatula. Next, using your hands, roll around 15 golf-sized balls and space them out evenly on your baking tray. Chill the balls in the freezer for 10 – 15 minutes while you prepare the chocolate.
Add your favorite white chocolate chips to a microwave-safe bowl and add in the coconut oil. Microwave for 30 seconds. Stir. Microwave again for 20 seconds. Stir. Continue this process until your chocolate is completely melted. You do not want to burn the chocolate. This is the easiest and most time effective way to melt your white chocolate! If you are feeling adventurous you can melt over the stovetop with a water bath.
Repeat the step above with the dark chocolate for the drizzle!
Once the pumpkin truffles are done chilling, dunk each one into the white chocolate. I fish mine out using two forks or spoons and place them on the lined baking sheet. Now, dip a fork into the dark chocolate and decorate with a drizzle! Freeze again for another 20 minutes.
I highly recommend storing them in the fridge like me. It makes them taste so much better. Trust me.
How to store these incredibly rich pumpkin spice truffles?
For best results, store in the fridge for up to 7 days in a covered airtight container or freezer for up to 1 – 2 months. If you freeze, let the pumpkin spice truffles thaw at room temperate for 10 to 15 minutes before serving!
