Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spread almonds onto a baking sheet.
  2. Bake in the preheated oven until almonds are fragrant and toasted, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven and cool; grind in a food processor until almonds are a flour-like texture.
  3. Mix ground almonds, crushed vanilla wafers, confectioners' sugar, and cinnamon together in a bowl. Stir 1 cup melted chocolate chips, pumpkin, and coffee liqueur into vanilla wafer mixture. Shape mixture into 1-inch balls and arrange on a baking sheet. Refrigerate or freeze truffles until solid, 1 to 2 hours.
  4. Melt 1/2 cup chocolate chips in the top of a double boiler over simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching. Dip truffles in melted chocolate and return to baking sheet to harden.

I skipped the almonds, and I used strong coffee instead of liqueur because these were made as gifts for my children's teachers. However, they were quite lovely. I did have to chill the mixture between making and rolling it because it stuck to my hands. Also, I suggest the use of a food processor to grind your wafers if you have one. I used a rolling pin over a plastic baggie, and there were light-colored spots in my truffles. Their texture was fine and consistent with the rest of the truffle, but if you are going for perfect presentation, I would say to get the wafers as ground up as possible. These are the first truffles I ever made, and I used dark chocolate for dipping. I found, by making a few other recipes as well, that candy melts give a much more consistent coverage and lay more nicely, so I will likely use them in the future. Very very good recipe. I will make these again and again!
