No bake pumpkin pie truffles are made with cream cheese, graham crackers and pumpkin spice. Recipe comes with a how-to video!
Is it too early for pumpkin? Probably, but that’s not stopping this girl. If you could have fall in one bite, it would be these pumpkin pie truffles. This no-bake recipe is a must if you are crazy about pumpkin spiced desserts!
I still can’t believe I made a pumpkin-flavored treat in August, but I wanted my fall fanatic readers to have this recipe on hand once September arrives. Plus, it was nice to not have to turn on the oven in this summer heat!
That’s the beauty of no-bake truffles. No oven? No problem. All you need is a bowl, hand mixer and microwave. You could even make these pumpkin cream cheese truffles in a dorm room if you wanted to.
The recipe is pretty simple. It’s pretty much just combining ingredients in increments until they are combined and smooth. The only time consuming part is waiting for the dough to chill so it is firm enough to dip into melted chocolate.
Making the the dough ahead of time is also an option. If you choose to take that option, store the pumpkin balls between layers of wax paper in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week or in the freezer for up to three months. When you’re ready to serve, let the pumpkin pie truffles defrost in the refrigerator before dipping them into chocolate.
Speaking of chocolate, the type is totally up to you. I chose white chocolate as a personal preference, but semisweet chocolate or dark chocolate would also be a delicious shell for the pumpkin truffles. Maybe dark chocolate with a sprinkle of sea salt? Candy coating will work just as well too!
Pumpkin pie truffles only require six ingredients. That’s it! Cream cheese, confectioners’ sugar, pumpkin pureé, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and graham crackers. Oh, and chocolate for dipping, so I guess that’s technically seven 🙂
It just takes a few minutes to mix the ingredients together. I’ve provided a how-to video below to show you just how easy it is!
How easy was that? Pumpkin pie truffles will have you in the mood for fall in no time. Like I said before, all the fall flavor in just one bite.
