These taste great, really. They just won't....come together? I'll put down the recipe, and detail the problem after.
Pumpkin Cream-Cheese Truffles (courtesy of Whole Foods recipes)
2 1/2 cups white chocolate chunks (I used chips)
1/3 cup gingersnap cookie crumbs
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 TBSP confectioners' suger
1/2 TSP orange zest
1/8 TSP ground cinnamon
pinch of sat
2 ounces of cream cheese, softened
Melt 1/2 cup of the chocolate in a double boiler over medium-low heat. Stir often to keep the chocolate from burning. Transfer to a large bowl. Add gingersnap crumbs, pumpkin, graham cracker crumbs, sugar, zest, cinnamon, salt, and cream cheese and beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Transfer to a shallow bowl, cover and chill until just solid enough to roll into balls, about 2 hours.
Line a large sheet with parchment paper. Melt remaining 2 cups of chocolate and transfer to a small, deep bowl. Roll by the teaspoon the pumpkin mixture into a ball with our hands, then drop into the chocolate. Working quickly, gently spoon chocolate over to coat. Lift the truffle out with a small spoon, shake off excess chocolate, and set on prepared parchment paper.
Repeat process with remaining pumpkin and chocolate, chill truffles until chocolate is completely set, about 1 hour.
I just realized where I went wrong. I melted HALF the chocolate originally, not half a cup. Then just melted the remaining 1 1/4 cups to coat. Whoops! Somebody try it out and let me know how it works for you :)
