Pumpkin Chocolate Truffles

If you have ever made chocolate truffles, this is just as simple except you add some pumpkin puree and spices in.  Just delicious and very addictive.


  I just love the flavour combination of chocolate, pumpkin and spices…almost as much as dark chocolate and raspberry….(drools over keyboard).  When finished, I rolled mine in cocoa powder and some in coconut.  You could always add a dash of liquer too, under the guise of “well, it’s the holiday season”.   Which is my personal excuse for cracking open a bottle of something on Christmas Day.

These would make a lovely gift for the holiday season too.  Or just eat them all yourself, then sob quietly in the corner..



1/2 cup pumpkin puree

225g dark chocolate (I use at least 70% cocoa solids)

1/2 cup cream

1 tspn ground cinnamon

1 tspn ground ginger

1/2 tspn all spice

1/4 tspn ground cloves

To coat (optional)

1/4 cup cocoa powder

1/4 cup dessicated coconut



  • Melt half of the dark chocolate in a bain marie (or bowl over simmering water).   Remove from the heat, and add the remaining chocolate, stirring until all has melted.
  • Add the cream, spices and pumpkin and mix thoroughly.
  • Place in the refrigerator for 1 hour to firm up.
  • Remove and take small teaspoons of the truffle mixture, roll into balls and place onto a layer of parchment paper.
  • Roll the balls in the coating of your choice (optional)
  • Eat and enjoy!

Makes 20-30 balls
