ingredients you’ll need

  • Almond Butter: or any other nut butter or choice
  • Pumpkin Puree: you may use canned pumpkin puree or make your own
  • Almond Flour: This is recommended in place of normal flour
  • Coconut Flour: you may use almond flour in place of this if you do not have coconut flour
  • Coconut Sugar: or cane sugar. But coconut sugar will taste better.
  • Spices: Cinnamon, Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • Vanilla Extract 
  • Salt: optional
  • Dark Chocolate: or any other chocolate of choice

how to make these Pumpkin Chocolate Truffles

  • First, make your truffle filling. Place all ingredients into a food processor (except chocolate) and blend until a dough forms.
  • Next, chill. Separate the dough into 11 evenly sized balls (about 1″) and place them on a piece of parchment paper and then into the freezer to chill for 20 minutes.
  • Coat in chocolate. Meanwhile, melt the chocolate. Remove balls from the freezer and dip each one into the chocolate until completely coated.
  • Freeze. Once all the balls are covered, return to the freezer until the chocolate hardens. Finally, sprinkle with cinnamon and serve!

recipe notes and tips

  • When mixing your filling, it should end up soft and thick. 
  • You can use a mini ice cream – or cookie – scoop, to portion out the filling. 
  • You can melt the chocolate in a double boiler or the microwave. If using the microwave, make sure to place the chocolate in a heat-proof bowl.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer – let thaw for 5 minutes before serving.
  • Allow chocolate to be completely set in the refrigerator before serving. 
  • Truffles are fine at room temp, for a few hours for serving.
  • If you don’t have pumpkin pie spice, it’s pretty easy to make your own. Also, you can make a tsp of pumpkin pie spice by blending a pinch each of ground ginger, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, ground cloves, and ground allspice.

frequently asked questions

Can I make this chocolate truffle vegan?

To make a Vegan version of these No-Bake Paleo Pumpkin Chocolate Truffles, you just need to use dairy-free dark chocolate. I’ve tried the Enjoy Life brand before and I think it’s great.

Can I make these truffles ahead of time?

These no-bake Pumpkin Chocolate Truffles are a great make-ahead dessert! Just layer truffles between sheets of parchment or wax paper in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or in the freezer for up to 2 months. Then thaw overnight in the refrigerator.

How to serve these pumpkin chocolate truffles?

You can either serve these straight from the fridge or you can let them come up to room temp before serving. Letting them come up to room temperature means you get more of that ‘melt-in-the-mouth sensation!
