Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Pie Truffles

If you too are craving some freestyle time in the kitchen (or just healthy-ish Halloween treats), these vegan dark chocolate pumpkin pie truffles are for you. The recipe is not quick - there's quite a bit of waiting while the truffles harden in the freezer - but it's relatively easy, healthy, and even affordable.

Dark chocolate is my weakness…especially a rich, high-percentage, good-quality dark chocolate. Do I consider myself a dark chocolate snob? Yes. Most run-of-the-mill chocolates don’t cut it for me, although that doesn’t mean I’m only into the fancy expensive chocolate either. I just feel like I can tell when I have a good piece of dark chocolate in front of me. I bake and use a lot of chocolate in my kitchen (including the occasional ‘throw-a-bunch-of-dark-chocolate-chips-in-my-mouth’). And if I were going around buying expensive bars of dark chocolate to chop up and melt, the grocery bills wouldn’t go over quite so well with my other half… ha!

But constantly creating homemade chocolate treats gets dangerous, guys… because I have to lick the melty chocolate spoon at least a couple times. It’s considered wasteful if I don’t… and then upon waiting for the chocolate to set I obviously have to taste test one… err, maybe two. I swear I need an assistant just to share the taste-testing duties around here.

Each pumpkiny chocolate bite of these addictively delicious pumpkin truffle balls has the perfect melt-in-your-mouth creamy texture you’re looking for in a truffle, paired with the heavenly taste of a pumpkin pie. The simplicity of the ingredients allows the pumpkin to shine through in all its glory, making these pumpkin truffles the perfect fall season treat – healthy, sweet and super duper yummy. And the chocolate coating… well, it’s chocolate. What’s not to love?

One thing that’s awesome about these is that they’re one of the easiest desserts I’ve ever made. The hardest part, for me at least, is not eating all of the pumpkin mixture and melted chocolate before it gets used (I know…a normal person would just pick at the chocolate. I nibbled both. To be more specific, I dipped bits of pumpkin filling in the warm melty chocolate, which was so good and so messed up at the same time.) So, I did consume a pretty good amount of both components. There was still some pumpkin left when all was said and done, so there’s more pumpkin love where this came from.

I hope you enjoy these little bites of heaven! I think they would make the perfect guilt-less treat for Halloween.
