Tasty Tuesday: No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Balls

""

 

 

 

Thank you Theresa Viehmeyer from Lilla Rose for today’s yummy recipe…. Yes, we are coming into the season of all things pumpkin…

 

Ingredients

2 1/2 C White Chocolate (either chips or broken into pieces) divided
3/4 C Vanilla Wafer Crumbs (See instructions may double amount)
1/2 C Pumpkin Puree
6 ounces Cream Cheese
1/4 C Powdered Sugar
1 1/2 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice

Directions:

  1. Take 1/2 C of the White Chocolate and melt
  2. While chocolate is melting (careful it burns easy) mix crumbs, puree, cream cheese, sugar and spices – I found it easiest to use a Food Processor but if you need to a hand mixer or blender should work
  3. Add melted white chocolate to already mixed ingredients and blend again – let it go in the processor for a while. It take about 2-3 minutes for everything to combine well for the balls.  TASTE. If you need more sugar add it.
  4. Place mix into a bowl and place in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes (can be longer but then cover)
  5. Place wax paper on a cookie sheet
  6. Take out chilled dough and begin making balls by rolling (about) 1 heaping spoonful at a time
  7. Melt remaining white chocolate
  8. Dip balls into white chocolate and refrigerate to set.
  9. Store in fridge and serve when chilled

Notes:

#1 – if dough is still “mushy” freeze for 15-30 minutes. You have to work fast and make the balls. I refrigerate the balls again before dipping in chocolate
#2 –  if you don’t like the consistancy of balls at 3/4 C wafer crumbs add more wafer crumbs up to 1 1/2 C total of crumbs
