Yield: 9 servings

Pumpkin Filling:

  • 1/3 cup cooked pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar, ground in a coffee grinder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon, or to taste
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut butter
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  1. In a bowl, stir all ingredients together until evenly combined.
  2. Put the mixture in the fridge to chill and firm up, at least 2 hours.
  3. Roll into balls and place them in the freezer while making the chocolate.


  • 2/3 cup melted cacao butter
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup or agave
  • 1 cup cacao powder
  1. Mix together the cacao butter and sweetener in a bowl set over a pot of hot water. This is important to keep the chocolate fluid. Sift in the cacao powder and gently whisk the mixture together until smooth.
  2. Dip the truffles into the chocolate and remove them with a fork, allowing excess to drip back into the bowl. Set on a parchment paper lined tray.
  3. Let set in the fridge for a few minutes and drizzle more chocolate on top if desired. Dust with cinnamon.
