Roll 1 heaping teaspoon of pumpkin mixture into a ball in your hands, then drop it into chocolate. Working quickly, gently spoon chocolate over to coat. Using a small spoon or fork, lift truffle out of chocolate and transfer to prepared sheet tray. Dollop a bit of extra chocolate on any parts that remain exposed.
  3. Then sprinkle with gingersnap or graham cracker crumbs over top. Repeat process with remaining pumpkin mixture and chocolate and chill for at least 1 hour
