Pumpkin Pie Truffles
Here at Team LEVO, we love anything pumpkin spiced and covered in dark chocolate. When we stumbled upon this easy pumpkin pie truffle recipe, we couldn’t resist adding a #LEVOmade twist.
By replacing the usual chocolate and heavy-cream ganache usually found in traditional truffles, the pumpkin filling is entirely plant-based. Before you get ready to make this fall treat, don’t forget to add a dash of salt as the final touch to complement the crunch. Happy truffling!
¼ cup almond butter (unsalted)
¼ cup pumpkin puree
¼ cup coconut butter, melted
2 teaspoon maple syrup
¾ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
Pinch of sea salt
1 tablespoon coconut flour
1 cup (about 6 ounces) dark chocolate chips
2-3 tablespoons of dried flower
¼ teaspoon coconut oil
Chopped or sliced almonds, coarse or flaked sea salt and/or pumpkin pie spice for garnish
Pack LEVO Pod with a combined 2-3 tablespoon of dried flower.
Begin infuse cycle at 160 F for 120 minutes in combination of coconut oil and coconut butter.
Place pumpkin puree and infused-coconut butter, maple syrup and pie spice in the bowl of a food processor. Process until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides as needed. Add coconut flour.
Process until a soft dough forms. If the dough is too sticky, add 1-2 teaspoons of additional coconut flour.
Roll dough between your palms to form 12 equal-sized balls.
Place on a plate in the freezer and allow to chill at least 30 minutes.
When ready to dip, place chocolate chips and coconut oil in a glass bowl set over a pan of simmering water to simulate a double boiler. Stir occasionally until completely melted and smooth.
Using a fork or wooden skewer, carefully dip truffles one at a time into the melted chocolate, rolling and dunking until evenly coated on all sides.
Sprinkle with chopped almonds, salt, and additional pumpkin pie spice, if desired.
Transfer to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and return to the fridge until chocolate hardens.
Store truffles in a covered container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
