These truffles are delicious and very flavorful. I made them for Christmas and my family loved them. Another review said you have to crumb the wafers in a food processor or blender, but I put them in a plastic bag and smashed them with a glass. It's pretty easy. But you do have to grind the nuts. I used my coffee grinder. I think the recipe is perfect. I usually change recipes, but this one was great as-is. The only difference I found is that it made way less than 4 dozen. They would have to be miniscule to get that many.

These truffles are good... but almost not worth the trouble. What the recipe neglects to say is that a food processor is required. I don't have one, and used a blender. Tedious work to "crumb" the wafers in this manner. Also, the recipe ingredients list should list the powdered sugar twice, as one-half is used in the mix, and 1/4 is used as a dusting. This is not specified clearly enough.

These are great and they freeze really well. But I don't dust them before hand if they are going to be frozen.

Wow! These were great! I would suggest letting these refrigerate overnight - it gets rid of the "crumb" texture.

I would say it is just me, but given the feedback I've gotten...these just aren't good. I've made them as directed, w/ Grand Marnier, & w/ orange juice. These have a granular (yes I ground everything w/ my food processor) quality that I just don't like.

I didn't add the chocolate into the recipe, and I added a little vanilla, nutmeg, and ground cloves into the mixture. I refrigerated it overnight and used the chocolate to dip the truffles in to create a more pumpkin flavored center. I also used apple juice instead of the liqueur. They turned out really good. Next time, I will probably just use pumpkin pie spice and a little vanilla.

BEWARE!!! The powdered sugar needs to be divided up BEFORE you put it into the mixture. I almost made a huge mistake by putting too much! We made these for a progressive dinner and everyone loved them!

This recipe was not to my liking at all. The version of this recipe that I found actually said to toast the almonds and it said that apple juice could be substituted for the coffee liqueur. With these adaptations, my opinion is this: 1. I could not taste the pumpkin; 2. the almonds were overpowering; and 3. the chocolate was definitely rich (not a compliment). This recipe should be called Rich Chocolate Almond Truffles. Just because there's pumpkin in it, that doesn't mean it should be in the name. The name as it is is misleading. I was really looking forward to having a pumpkin-tasting truffle, and this recipe let me down.
