    Better than Expected

    Angela A. from GLENDALE, AZ

    I wasn't sure about how the vanilla wafers would affect the taste, but these truffles are amazing. The pumpkin/chocolate combination is irresistibly delicious. I will definitely be making these again and again and again. I used apple juice and it tastes fine.

    Not enough pumpkin flavor

    Lanae Santos from KANEOHE, HI

    The alcohol flavor came out more than the pumpkin flavor. I was a little disappointed.

    Class Hit

    Cryss Conroy from Scottdale, PA

    My son and I found this recipe (we all love anything to do with pumpkin) and tried it for his birthday treat to his classmates. They all loved it! Whenever I go to the school, kids come up asking when I'm making more truffles. We also have made the truffles for church youth group fundraisers and planning on scout project too. Kids love to make them and eat them, we even get to sell a few too.

    Rich Chocolate Pumpkin Truffles Review

    Libby Hoggatt from SAN FRANCISCO, CA

    This was the first attempt I have made to make truffles of any kind. They were rich and chocolaty: but I couldn't taste the pumpkin. I gave a plate of them to a neighbor and he loved them too. I substituted the orange juice in my recipe. I will make them again. It was very easy too.

    Excellent!!

    just okay

    Stacy Beyer from ROYAL PALM BEACH, FL

    these truffles tasted good, but the texture didn't seem right with the crushed up cookies. next time i'll grind the cookies.

    Easy

    Brandy Fisher from TULSA, OK

    These went over well at Thanksgiving. However, the Kahlua seemed to overpower the pumpkin a bit. I guess I'll try juice next time.

    Fun to do and good

    Gretchen McCray from PHOENIX, AZ

    When I first found this recipe I thought "it is so simple" Wow it's simple and great and the kids had a great time rollling the truffles and coming up with new and intresting this to cover the candys with. We tried crushed pretzels and they are really very good.

    awesome alternative to pumpkin pie

    kristin ozdych from FARMINGTON HILLS, MI

    excellent, easy to make and you can swap ingredients to change up the flavor(i.e. white chocolate, pumpkin pie spice, and different fruit juices). These will grace my turkey table for years to come.

    Wonderful Truffles

    cindy stewart-birdwell from nicholasville, KY

    These truffles are SO good! They are so easy to make and look like you spent a lot of time and trouble. They make wonderful little gifts, wrapped up two at a time in cellophane bags, tied with raffia! The substitution of orange juice for the liquor make these taste just as good...and kid friendly! The use of coffee liquor really adds a richness and makes these extra special! Everyone loved them!

  •  Star(s)

    Yummy

    Erica Osting from DOUGLASSVILLE, PA

    I've never made truffles before. These were VERY easy to make, and have a wonderful flavor. I don't taste the pumpkin, really...taste more chocolate than anything, but STILL very good!

    I was looking for something different to serve at a wedding shower when I ran across this recipe. It was a huge hit: elegant, easy and delicious. What more could you ask for? Pumpkin isn't just for fall and winter anymore.

    Tasted better a couple days later!

    Jennifer Webb from CHESTER, VA

    I made these for Thanksgiving and they were a big hit. I had a few I'd left at home and when we got into them almost a week later, they tasted even better than the first couple days after I made them. They were very easy to make, I used the apple juice instead and they turned out great.

    Rich and tasty

    Judi Schimke from SEATTLE, WA

    These truffles were quite easy to make....and they are so rich. I did let the mixture "sit" for about a half hour to let everything meld together, before I rolled them into balls and it made it much easier to work with. They look quite elegant on the dessert tray and I did get raves.

    Rich & Chocolatey

    Ruth Byrd from Klamath Falls, OR

    These are great if you like rich chocolate flavor but I found it overpowered the pumpkin and was too rich & sweet. I used the applejuice which may have added to the sweetness so if I try it again I will use the liquer and maybe try a different morsel such as peanut butter or butterscotch.

    So Simple

    Lliana Palmer from Staten Island, NY

    I used the apple juice since it was all I had on hand rather than the liquor. These were gobbled up- I used mini cup cake holders to store them in and they looked so professional! Great Recipe

    Chocolate Pumpkin Truffles

    Phyllis Barber-Smith from EAST WINDSOR, CT

    This was such and easy idea, I decided to try it with some alternative ingredients...I had just baked sugar cookies, and you know sometimes the shapes don't come out just right, well, rather than trow out the scraps, try crunching them up! Mixed with the chocolate, pumpkin and nuts (pecans in my case)what a wonderful treat!! My kids devoured them!

    A wonderful treat!

    NONI SHEARER from KISSIMMEE, FL

    I find these to be the ultimate in candy treats. I love truffles and have several different recipes. These are one of my favorites. Next time I think I will use black walnuts. I love the taste of pumpkin and black walnuts. The chocolate will be the "frosting on the cake (candy)" In this case as i am a confirmed chocoholic.

    My Husband Was Right

    WENDY GULBIS from ROCKFORD, MI

    I had printed out this recipe but never got around to making it. My husband thought the truffles sounded good and asked me to make them for Christmas,and he was right! They are different but very delicious. We even liked them better after waiting a week to finish the few I managed to save for later. It seemed the flavors blended more.

    Easy to make, but next time I would use less cinnamon. I "rolled" these truffles in powder sugar, some in colored sugar and some in chopped nuts to make a holiday presentation. Nice touch with afternoon coffee

    these could have used a little more pumpkin. Also, they seemed easy to make, but the presentation wasn't as nice as I expected.

    Scrumptious

    Mary DeJesus from San Francisco, CA

    I made these to share on Thanksgiving but had to sample them first and am so pleased with the ease of preparation, the taste and texture. I always look for a new pumpkin treat at this time of year and this one is a keeper. However, they were very sweet, so I think I will not add the 1/2 cup powdered sugar next time.
