This post is being brought to you via iPhone — from a sleep deprived, red wined up, food blogger. I can’t be held accountable for anything below this point. Please send any grammar complaints directly to Apple.

Some days I feel like 24 hours in a day just isn’t enough time to do everything I need to get done. Other days I feel like the days just stretch on and on with no end in site.

Today I woke up at 4am to catch a flight to Iowa (for a press trip for Iowa Corn). It’s now 11pm at night and I’m somehow still going. It’s been a fun day filled with a winery, good food, bonfires and friends…but at this point I’m like the walking dead.

I’m writing this post from my iPhone, because the hotel wireless is down. I need a shower. I need to unpack my clothes. I need to answer emails. And I really want a full 8 hours sleep before I go check out Iowa Corn Farms tomorrow.

So while today has been very long, I would really just like a few more extra hours. To sleep. Shower. Email. And write this post.

Thankfully I made these truffles Monday before I left. They made the perfect airport snack!

I really love the chocolate & pumpkin combination, but if that’s not your thing — feel free to swap it for white chocolate.

For a fun spin on the recipe, you could also swap graham crackers for Biscoff cookies. Biscoff Pumpkin Truffles? Yum!

Chocolate Pumpkin Truffles

These Chocolate Pumpkin Truffles are like little bites of fall wrapped in rich, dark chocolate. When you bite into one of these truffles, you'll get a mouthful of rich, chocolatey, pumpkin goodness. It's basically like having a mini, bite-sized version of pumpkin pie but coated with luscious dark chocolate.

  • Cover a large cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave white chocolate chips for 30 seconds and stir. If not completely melted, microwave in 15-second intervals, stirring after each, until smooth.
  • Add melted white chocolate chips, pumpkin puree, crushed graham crackers, cream cheese, and powdered sugar to food processor. Pulse until a dough forms. Chill dough for 3 hours, or until it is easy to roll into balls (dough will still be sticky).
  • Roll dough into 1-inch balls and place onto prepared cookie sheet. Chill balls in freezer for 15 minutes.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, melt dark chocolate for 1 minute and stir. If not completely melted, microwave in 15-second intervals, stirring after each, until smooth.
  • Dip balls into melted dark chocolate using toothpicks or a fork. Return to cookie sheet and sprinkle tops with crushed graham crackers for garnish if desired.
  • Let truffles harden at room temperature for 1 hour or in the refrigerator for 15 minutes. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
