Pumpkin Cream Cheese Cake Truffles
This recipe makes about 48 truffles. Here’s how to make luscious Pumpkin Cream Cheese Cake Truffles:
1 spice cake mix + ingredients as per box
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
3 ounces cream cheese
2 teaspoons half and half
2 tablespoons pumpkin puree
1 bag white chocolate candy melts
Ground Cinnamon for garnish
Prepare and bake the cake according to directions on the box for a 9×13 cake. Let the cake cool completely.
Add the cream cheese, half and half and pumpkin puree to the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Beat the ingredients until the come together.
Slice the cake into 10 pieces. With the mixer on the lowest setting, drop the cake pieces into the mixer one at a time. Take care not to overmix. You want the mixture to just come together.
Roll 1-inch balls of the mixture and set them on a parchment lined baking sheet. Line a second baking sheet with parchment paper for the dipped cake balls.
Melt the chocolate according to the directions on the package. Using a fork, dip the cake ball into the chocolate. Gently tap the fork against the side of the bowl to allow the excess chocolate to drip off.
Using a toothpick, gently slide the cake ball off the fork onto the parchment paper. Sprinkle with ground cinnamon. Repeat until all the cake balls have been dipped.
Refrigerate the cake balls for 1 hour to allow the chocolate to harden. Serve chilled.
Store in an airtight container for 3-4 days.
These make a lovely little gift. Grab some glassine bags and bakers twine to make up little gift packages for friends and family:
