Description

These chocolate pumpkin truffles are a deliciously easy gluten-free dessert.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup coconut butter
  • 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 cup canned coconut milk
  • 4 Tbsp. pure maple syrup
  • 1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Sea salt
  • 1 tsp. Cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Add the pumpkin, coconut butter, coconut milk, maple syrup, and pumpkin pie spice to a food processor and blend well.
  2. Pour mixture into a bowl, cover, and store in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes or until the filling can be rolled into a ball.
  3. While the filling is refrigerating, add the chocolate chips to a small mixing bowl and melt according to package directions.
  4. Once the chocolate is melted, remove the pumpkin mixture from the refrigerator and begin assembling your truffles. Using a small melon baller or another scoop, scoop out the pumpkin mixture into about a 3/4 in. ball, rolling it in between your hands to make a nice round ball.
  5. Using two forks, dip the ball into the chocolate, gently shake off any excess chocolate and place onto a lined baking sheet.
  6. Repeat this process with the remainder of the pumpkin mixture.
  7. Place the baking sheet with the chocolate pumpkin truffles into the refrigerator for about 10 minutes to harden further.
  8. Remove from the refrigerator, sprinkle with cinnamon and salt and serve.
  9. Store in the refrigerator.
