How to Make Pumpkin Spice Truffles


  1. Beat everything together (ending with the eggs) according to the package instructions and bake in a 13 X 9" pan. Make sure the cake is completely baked (no gooey middle) before removing from the oven. Let cool completely on a wire rack.
  2. Crumble the cake apart in a bowl and add most of the can of cream cheese. Using your fingers, mix together until the cake holds together when formed into a ball. Add more frosting of necessary. Roll into balls of about a 2 bite size. Or you can use a cookie scoop for a more uniform size. Then roll them to make them more rounded. This should make about 65. Place on cookie sheets lined with wax paper and refrigerate several hours or overnight.
  3. When ready to dip, melt the candy melts (I used two bags of melts total) a 1/2 bag at a time following the directions on the package. If you are using the white almond bark, when it is all melted you can mix in the food coloring to make it orange. Stick the pretzel in the middle of the dough and then roll it in the chocolate from side to side till it is covered. Place on another sheet of wax paper. Refrigerate till ready to eat.
  4. * TIP: If the chocolate seems too thick you can add about 1/2 TBL of oil to thin it out, mix it in well.
