Today is the last day of our summer and I’m sad to see it go.

That said, it’s is still super hot outside and humid too, so we’re trying to enjoy this last heatwave before fall.

How early is too early for pumpkin season to begin? In my world, I’m ready for it the moment back-to-school sales begin. I’ll all in on the fall recipes and baking.

Pumpkin Truffles

These little pumpkin truffles are made with graham crackers. And that works perfectly in these truffles.

Have you heard of Oreo truffles? Oreo truffles use crushed up Oreos and cream cheese. When the cream cheese softens the Oreo, it makes a smooth, rich truffle.

The pumpkin and cream cheese do the same thing to the graham cracker crumbs in these pumpkin truffles and a bit of white chocolate helps sweeten and firm them up.

While I’m in the truffle mood, I may also try these Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles from Garnish with Lemon, or these No-bake Peanut Butter Truffles from Marsha’s Baking Addiction.

Lemon Oreo Truffles and Mint Chocolate Chip Truffles are favorites! Be sure to check them out.

How To Make Pumpkin Truffles

  1. Beat together the cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth. Add the pumpkin and beat until smooth. Stir in the finely crushed graham cracker crumbs and pumpkin pie spice.
  2. Add melted white chocolate and stir until smooth. The mixture will be thick, but still soft. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours until cold and firm.
  3. After the dough is chilled, roll the truffle mixture into 1 inch balls. The mixture will still be soft, but workable. Chill the truffle balls in again until firm, at least 30 minutes.
  4. Dip the cold pumpkin balls into the white chocolate and place on parchment paper to harden. Sprinkle with additional graham cracker crumbs for garnish, if desired. Store in the refrigerator.

These truffles are a perfect treat when you want something fancy and pumpkin-flavored and it’s still warm out.

Wrapped in a white chocolate shell, that creamy filling tastes just like cold and creamy pumpkin pie.

Just be sure to share to have some friends to share them with. They’re rich and irresistible.

Prep Time: 20 mins
Additional Time: 5 hrs
Total Time: 5 hrs 20 mins
Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Servings: 25 truffles

Ingredients 

  • 4 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 3/4 cups finely crushed graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 4 ounces white chocolate melted
  • 8 ounces white chocolate for dipping

Instructions

  • Beat together the cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth. Add the pumpkin and beat until smooth. Stir in the finely crushed graham cracker crumbs and pumpkin pie spice. The finer the graham crackers are crushed the smoother the truffles will be. I like to pulse mine in the blender until very fine.
  • Add the 4 ounces of melted white chocolate and stir until smooth. The mixture will be thick, but still soft. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours until cold and firm. The graham crackers will absorb the moisture, thickening the mixture so it can be rolled into balls.
  • After the dough is chilled, roll the truffle mixture into 1 inch balls. The mixture will still be soft, but workable. Chill the truffle balls in again until firm, at least 30 minutes.
  • In a deep container suitable for dipping, melt the 8 ounces of white chocolate in the microwave in 10 second intervals until melted and smooth.
  • Dip the chilled balls into the white chocolate and place on parchment paper to harden. You may sprinkle with additional graham cracker crumbs for garnish. Store in the refrigerator.
