Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Truffles



Dude. I love holiday treats. There's something about getting into the Christmas spirit, watching my favorite Christmas movies, fireplace going, Balsam Fir candle lit, decorations up, and just going to town with baking. I have so many other fun treats I want to make before the year is over, but this was my latest success story: Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Truffles with sea salt. That sea salt garnish just adds a little extra fanciness that makes them truly special.



If you are looking for a dessert to bring to your next holiday party, look no further friends, this is your guy. These babies are decadent and elaborate looking without requiring a tremendous amount of effort in the kitchen. Think of it almost like a tiny piece of pumpkin pie, covered in dark chocolate, and topped off with a sprinkle of salt. They are perfection.


The recipe as written makes about 15 truffles, but you can easily double it to make a batch large enough for a party. I even had quite a bit of chocolate leftover after dipping my truffles, so you may not need 2 full bags of chocolate chips for a double batch (depending on how thick you want your chocolate coating).
