Pumpkin Truffles by Broma Bakery

You could say I have an obsession with pumpkin. And by obsession I mean I want to bake everything with pumpkin. Pumpkin brownies, pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin cinnamon rolls, pumpkin coffee cake, pumpkin donuts (well, I guess I did that one already)…

So like all the things. It’s always this time of year that I stock up on canned pumpkin at the grocery store. Go into my cupboard between now and March and you’ll find at least 2 cans of pumpkin puree. But, you know what? I’m gonna own it. It’s warm and spiced, it adds a fantastic texture to everything, and is a crowd-pleaser. So I will continue to go on my merry way with my pumpkin baking. 

Up now are my pumpkin truffles. They’re small but they’re rich, just the way a truffle should be! And they’re coated with chocolate, a natural pairing.

So enough about pumpkin! Go out, enjoy your fall day, and make these babies when you come home!

Serves: 20-24 truffles
Ingredients
  • 15 Golden Oreo cookies
  • 5 ounces softened cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin puree
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ⅛ teaspoon cloves
  • ⅛ teaspoon ginger
  • 2 cups bittersweet chocolate chips
  • Toothpick or fork for dipping
Instructions
  1. In a food processor, grind the Oreos until powdery. Set aside 1-2 tablespoons of crushed Oreos, and mix in a pinch of cinnamon for color.
  2. Pour the majority of the Oreos into a medium bowl and stir in cream cheese, pumpkin puree, and spices until homogenous. Place mix into refrigerator and cool for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Once the truffles are cold, using a rounded tablespoon, roll the dough into balls. Place on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper.
  4. Next, melt the chocolate chips in a small microwave-safe bowl in 30 second increments, stirring well in between each heating.
  5. Using a toothpick or fork, dip balls into melted chocolate and return them to the baking sheet to cool. To garnish, sprinkle the 1-2 tablespoons of Oreos set aside from earlier. Place in freezer until hardened. Voilà!
Notes
Because of the cream cheese, these truffles should be kept refrigerated for up to 5 days.

If you're interested in coloring your truffles, I used 2 drops of red food coloring and about 15 of yellow! It gives them a subtle orange tint.

If it’s inevitable that you’re going to use them all, why not have like 5 at once?

It’s not so easy to find canned pumpkin in London so even though I feel the same urge I have to usually ignore it or roast entire pumpkins in order to create the purée from scratch. As you can imagine that’s a lot of work! I have however found an online supermarket that carries Libby’s Solid Pack pumpkin so I am so excited to bake /make something this weekend. These truffles look absolutely yum!

That’s the saddest thing I’ve heard all day. But good news is that Libby’s is the best! You have to buy it in bulk, it’s so worth it. Can’t wait to see what you come up with 🙂
