Are you sick of pumpkin yet? I am so obsessed with pumpkin recipes these days. These pumpkin truffles are delicious and they would be perfect for a Thanksgiving dessert. I had to stop myself from eating more than one. These pumpkin truffles may be my most favorite pumpkin dessert recipe yet! You can’t really go wrong with pumpkin and chocolate!
These pumpkin truffles are a little bite of heaven. You only need 7 ingredients to make them! They are vegan, gluten free and paleo. Imagine a pumpkin cream covered in chocolate. Perfection! I used chocolate chips in my recipe, but this would also work with my 3 ingredient chocolate recipe. If you choose to use that, don’t add the milk. Just make the chocolate sauce as is. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!
