Enter Pumpkin Chocolate Truffles. If the uncreative name doesn't already give it away, these are your standard chocolate truffles with a not-so-standard ingredient: pumpkin puree. Because I use semi-sweet chocolate in the truffles, the pumpkin flavor isn't too strong. It's more of a background note, a little something to make you smack your lips and think, "What is that?!" If you're not sure about this whole idea of combining pumpkin and chocolate, this might be a good introductory recipe. A gateway recipe, if you will. And once you fall in love with them, it will be pumpkin-chocolate EVERYTHING. You're welcome.
