Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium saucepan over low heat, combine the pumpkin, brown sugar, and spices; cook for 5-6 minutes, or until the mixture reduces by half and the pumpkin looks dry. Set aside.
  2. In another saucepan over high heat, add the cream; remove from heat when it boils.
  3. In a heatproof bowl, pour the hot cream over the dark chocolate; let mixture sit for 1 minute, then slowly begin to stir, starting from the center of the bowl and working outwards.
  4. Once the chocolate and cream are evenly mixed, add the pumpkin mixture and whisk to combine. Add the butter and liqueur, if using.
  5. Cover bowl tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate until well chilled, at least 1 hour.
  6. On a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet, scoop the chilled mixture into small balls using a melon baller. Place in refrigerator for another 60 minutes, or until well chilled.
  7. Remove truffles from refrigerator and dip each in the melted white chocolate; roll in cocoa powder.
  8. Chill again until chocolate sets; bring to room temperature before serving.
