Chocolate-Pumpkin Truffles


Makes about 4 Dozen Truffles



2 1/2 cups Vanilla Wafers
1 cup Almonds lightly toasted and ground
3/4 cup sifted Confectioners' Sugar (divided)
2 tsp. ground Cinnamon
6 oz. Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1/2 cup Pumpkin Puree
1/3 cup Coffee Liqueur


In a medium bowl, combine vanilla wafer crumbs, ground almonds, one-half cup confectioner's sugar, and cinnamon.
Blend in chocolate chips, pumpkin puree, and coffee liqueur. (The one-third cup of coffee liqueur may be replaced with a fifty-percent mixture of cold coffee and sugar syrup as a non-alcoholic alternative.)

Form the mixture into one-inch balls. Cover and refrigerate to firm. Just prior to serving, dust the truffles with the remaining one-quarter cup of confectioner's sugar.
