Chocolate Pistachio Truffles

A few weeks ago, my husband made some amazing pumpkin enchiladas.  They had a pistachio dust on top.  Well he ground up too many pistachios and I have been wondering what to do with them ever since.  So I decided to make chocolate pistachio truffles.

These chocolate pistachio truffles remind me of chocolate ganache.  They simply melt in your mouth.  I think it is due to the pecan butter I added.  If you haven’t tried pecan butter, you need to!  Amazing stuff.  There are dates in these chocolate pecan truffles, but I honestly can’t even taste or detect them at all.  This easy dessert can be made in a matter of minutes.  Vegan, gluten free and grain free. 🙂

  5. Roll the dough into balls, then roll the balls through the chopped pistachios.
  6. Once that is done, place the balls on a lined baking sheet .

  1. Sounds delish........Just one question.....Never saw pecan butter in my heath food shop......Do you just make pecan butter the same way you make peanut or almond butter??????
      1. And should I assume you soaked the pecans all night, then roasted them, and then ground them into butter? I'm just checking cuz I'm new to all this! ;-D
    1. I didn't melt the chocolate. I just broke it into pieces before throwing in the food processor. Here is the recipe I used for pecan butter.
  2. I like the fact that they have pistachios and pecan butter in them which makes them different from a lot of these kinds of treats. W
  3. I like the ingredients in these truffles. These treats are different from what I usually come across. Can I replace the pecan butter with another kind of nut butter? Almond butter? Peanut butter? Which one would be better?
  4. Made these today using almond butter… They are absolutely wonderful…. Will be one of my favorite recipes and will definitely make for Christmas gifts !!!!
