Spiced Chocolate Monster Truffles are sweet, with a hint of pumpkin and melts in your mouth perfectly. You will want to make them over and over. WARNING, they are super addictive. Yes, that good. This post and recipe was created for #HalloweenTreatsWeek! I was sent samples by some of the sponsor companies but as always opinions are 100% mine.
Make these truffles for any event or potluck. They can easily be made the night before or even a couple of nights before and travels nicely. Think party favors. Chocolate truffles are great party favors, who doesn’t love to go home with something sweet? I know we do! We’ll walk you through the chocolate truffle making process.
- 12 ounces Milk Chocolate Baking Bars, divided
- 1/2 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
- 2 tablespoons Pumpkin, canned
- 2 tablespoons Pumpkin, canned
- 1/4 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon Ground Ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
- Ground Cloves, dash
- Baking Cocoa
- Candy Eyeballs, (from Wilton)
- cupcake liners, (optional, from Sweet and Treats)
- Finely chop 10 ounces chocolate. Place in a small bowl.
- In a small saucepan, combine cream, pumpkin, and spices; heat just to a boil. Pour over chocolate; let stand for 5 minutes.
- Stir with a whisk until smooth. Cool to room temperature. Refrigerate, covered, at least 4 hours.
- Finely grate remaining chocolate; place in a small microwave-safe bowl. With hands dusted lightly with baking cocoa, shape chocolate mixture into 1-in. balls; roll in grated chocolate. (Mixture will be soft and truffles may flatten slightly upon standing).
- If desired, melt unused grated chocolate in a microwave and use to attach eyeballs.
- Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
To make these spiced chocolate monster truffles even more spooky and Halloween ready we added the cutest eye candies from Wilton. Make some with the traditional two eyes, others with three eyes and last but not least make some of the truffles with one eye. Either one you choose, you’ll love them all. They are melt in your mouth-good!
