Ingredients
Pumpkin puree
Pumpkin spice mix
Chocolate coating
Instructions
  1. Prepare your pumpkin spice mix first or use a store bought version if you can get it. . I had all the ingredients in my cupboard so made my own. I don’t like to spend money, if I don’t need to
  2. Combine all the ingredients for the pumpkin cream in the food processor. Blend until smooth.
  3. Put the food processor bowl in the fridge to firm up a little. Leave for around 10 minutes.
  4. Remove from fridge and using a small ice-cream scoop, drop the mixture onto a baking tray covered with a baking sheet or grease-proof paper. Alternatively you can use an ordinary small spoon, but you may need to shape them a little bit with your fingers once placed on the baking sheet.
  5. Place the tray in the freezer to firm while you make the chocolate mixture.
  6. To make the chocolate use a double boiler method. Fill a saucepan with water and bring it to a boil. Place a glass bowl onto the saucepan so it sits above the water.
  7. Into the suspended bowl, first melt the coconut oil and then add sugar and raw cocoa, whisking all the time.
  8. Once you get a smooth consistency add your milk very slowly and stir all the time. I like to use cashew milk or thick soya milk from Bonsoi.
  9. Once the mixture starts thickening, take the bowl off of the pot and use a spoon to drizzle the chocolate over each truffle.
  10. Place the truffles back in the fridge to firm up the chocolate.
  11. Keep these truffles in the fridge. They can last a couple weeks, but I guarantee you, they won’t…
