Expert Tips

  • Cream Cheese – Make sure before mixing ingredients that the cream cheese has softened to room temperature. This allows for the mixture to smooth and creamy.
  • Melting Chocolate – When melting chocolate make sure that it does not burn. We recommend melting in 30 seconds intervals and stir to combine.
  • Excess Chocolate – After dipping the pumpkin balls make sure to remove excessive chocolate. Then place on a baking sheet to allow to chill.
  • Chill Truffles – Allow the truffles to chill so the chocolate hardens. Then the truffles are ready to serve.
  • Pumpkin Puree – This recipe is made with pumpkin puree instead of the pumpkin pie filling. The truffles will not come out the same if using the wrong ingredients.

FAQs

How long do truffles last?

Pumpkin Truffles are perfect make ahead of time. You can easily prepare and store. They will last about a week in the refrigerator.

Can you freeze Pumpkin Truffles?

We love to make holiday candy and this is always on the list. You can easily double the batch and freeze the Pumpkin Truffles.

We like to flash freeze the truffles by placing on a baking sheet separately. Then placing in the freezer to freeze for about an hour.

Once they are slightly frozen, place in them in a zip lock bag. This way you can take out the amount you need to serve.

How to store leftovers?

Refrigerate any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
