Happy Thanksgiving Truffles
Even though I'm not hosting Thanksgiving at our place (never have and will try to shirk it as long as possible) - I'm of course contributing to a fabulous feast that's about to take place at Dan's cousin's house. And since I've been on a truffle kick lately, I decided to have another go at it, creating these white chocolate, pumpkin truffles. Similarly to my first try at truffles, I see that I still need loads of practice, but the good news is that the end result still tastes yummy.
I made two types of truffles, as you can see here - one is coated in white chocolate and includes a pumpkin (butternut squash in my case), cream cheese, white chocolate, cookie crumbs, cinnamon, sugar and orange zest filling and is coated in the white chocolate. Like a proper truffle should look. The others are a bit more rustic, as I ended up mixing the remainder of the white chocolate with the above mentioned filling and then coating it with the cookie crumbs. Still yummy but just a different look. Hope you have the patience and appetite to try something like this - while the pumpkin (or the butternut squash lasts).
Happy Thanksgiving everyone, and I can't wait to hear about the yummies you cooked up.
