You guys, my husband is watching Twilight right now. Not in the kind of way like I started watching it and he was sitting there too. No, he came downstairs and asked what the deal is with the vampire show that he had been watching. All on his own. And now he’s in an all day marathon of Twilight watching. This from the guy who constantly makes fun of my tv choices. (yes, I am fully aware the housewives is rotting my brain) I also have a confession. I’ve never seen Twilight. I started reading the book when it was first out and it made me uncomfortable because Edward was supposed to be an old dude and was hooking up with a teenager. It made me feel weird so I stopped. 

Sorry, totally away from what I’m here for. Pumpkin Spice Truffles!

If you love Oreo truffles and who doesn’t? Plus you love pumpkin, again, who doesn’t? You will love these! They are like little bites of Fall and they are incredibly easy. A little pumpkin, a little cinnamon, a little nutmeg, a little graham cracker. Yum! These would be a perfect treat to bring to Thanksgiving that are low maintenance and people can pop as they please. I love the graham cracker flavor in these. It’s a perfect pair with the pumpkin and spices.

Pumpkin Spice Truffles

Ingredients

2 ounces cream cheese (full fat), room temperature
2 Tablespoons powdered sugar
1/3 cup pumpkin puree
1 and 3/4 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 12 full sheet graham crackers)
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 ounces white chocolate, coarsely chopped and melted
Topping:
10 ounces white chocolate, chopped and melted
extra graham cracker crumbs for garnish

Instructions

1. In a mixer, beat the cream cheese and powdered sugar together on high until fluffy. About 2 minutes. Add the pumpkin and beat again on high for about 1 minute. Add the cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, graham cracker crumbs and melted chocolate. Mix on medium speed until combined.
2. Mixture will be thick and sticky. Transfer dough into some plastic wrap and cover, then refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Chilling the dough is key to this recipe.
3. Line a large baking sheet with parchment or a silicone baking mat. Remove chilled dough and start rolling the balls. You want each ball to be about 1 teaspoon size. Place balls on the baking sheet, then chill them again for about 30 minutes.
4. While the dough is chilling, you can melt the white chocolate. I use the microwave because I like easy, but you can also use a double boiler. If using the microwave, melt in 30 second increments and stir after each round.
5. Time to dip the truffles. Remove from the fridge and use a fork to dip into the melted white chocolate. Tap off excess and then place back onto the baking sheet. Sprinkle the truffles with the graham cracker crumbs while they are still wet.
6. After chocolate is set, place in an airtight container and store in the fridge. They are good at room temperature for few hours as well.
7. These are great to make ahead, the flavor gets even better day two.
