Chyrel's Recipes From Friends

Chocolate-Pumpkin Truffles
2 1/2 cups vanilla wafers, crushed
1 cup almonds, lightly toasted/ground
3/4 cup sifted icing sugar (divided)
2 tsp ground cinnamon
6oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/3 cup Kailua

1) In a medium bowl, combine vanilla wafer crumbs, ground almonds, one-half cup icing sugar, and cinnamon.

2) Blend in chocolate chips, pumpkin puree, and coffee liqueur. (The one-third cup of coffee liqueur may be replaced with 50% mixture of cold coffee and sugar syrup as a non-alcoholic alternative).

3) Form the mixture into 1-inch balls. Cover and refrigerate to firm. Just prior to serving, dust the truffles with the remaining 1/4 cup of icing sugar.
