An easy holiday-inspired truffle! 100% Keto-friendly.
- 1/2 cup Pumpkin puree
- 8 oz of softened full-fat cream cheese
- 1/2 cup of a powdered sugar-replacement such as Sukrin Milis
- 6-8 drops of vanilla stevia
- 1 TBSP vanilla extract
- 6 TBSP coconut flour
- Spices: An assortment of nutmeg, cinnamon, ground cloves, (or allspice), cardamon, ginger, lemon peel – Or just use a pumpkin pie spice (as long as no sugar in ingredients). Spice to preference but start small and add more until it’s to your spice-level liking.
- 1/2 tsp salt
- Use a hand-mixer to mix together the pumpkin, cream cheese, sweeteners, and vanilla. Once fully combined, mix in coconut flour (to soak up moisture and make the truffles stay together). Mix in spices and salt. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed.
- Prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Use a 1 inch cookie dough scooper and scoop balls of the mixture onto the cookie sheet. Refrigerate for an hour.
- 4 TBSP coconut oil
- 1 bar of Lily’s dark chocolate
- 1 bar of Lindt 90% dark chocolate
- 2-3 drops of vanilla stevia
- In a double boiler, melt coconut oil over low heat
- Add in an ounce of chocolate at a time and melt, stirring often. Continue until all chocolate is melted.
- Stir in stevia drops.
- Remove from heat and immediately start the assembly section below –
- Remove pumpkin balls from refrigerator.
- Scrape each ball off with a fork and dip into the chocolate. Use a spoon or spatula to coat the entire pumpkin ball with chocolate. Move the ball back to the parchment papered cookie sheet.
- Optional: Sprinkle a pinch of additional pumpkin pie spices on top while the chocolate is still wet.
- Refrigerate immediately to help chocolate fully harden up. Keep chilled until ready to serve.
- You can also do a double layer of chocolate to make the shell thicker.
- If you can’t find Lily’s chocolate, just use 2 Lindt bars and add in 1/4 cup of powdered sugar-replacement.
- You can use cacao butter instead of coconut oil to keep the shell harder longer, since cacao butter is hard at room temperature, however this will slightly alter the taste
